Route information

Terrain: Road, Path, Gravel
Participants will begin at Gateway (74) or Colorado Avenue (103) with those competing in the latter event snaking their way through a downhill stretch whilst hugging the beautiful San Miguel River
For Telluride, the next 28 miles stretch out as riders move downhill along the San Miguel River to the base of 'Norwood Hill', a solid 2-mile climb, where the cyclists enter in single fire towards Wrights Mes.
The 20 miles to the next community of Naturita takes riders through beautiful farm fields. Leaving Naturita the ride stays along the San Miguel River, as it transitions into the arid landscape of the high desert. The latter stage of the course transitions towards beautiful deserts and canyons which will provide a welcome distraction for any tired legs.
Gateway is the finishing area for this race, offering a fitting ending for all.
