ROADS AS BEAUTIFUL AS THE HIGH DESERT SCENERY

The Tour of the Moon was made famous in the 1980’s Coors Classic and later in the cycling movie American Flyers. Its legacy continues as one of the premier road cycling events in the western United States.

The National Park Service caps our participation at 2,200, and we sell out every year, so sign up now to ensure your spot! A portion of your registration fee will go to support One Riverfront and Bicycle Colorado.

A FALL CLASSIC

The Tour of the Moon exemplifies road cycling in the American west.  Join us for our 10th annual on Saturday, September 10, 2022.

LODGING

Make a special weekend of the Tour of the Moon and enjoy the splendor of the Western Slope. View our special lodging rates and stay a few extra days in the beautiful Grand Valley.  

THE COURSE

All cyclists will start and finish at Grand Junction Convention Center in downtown Grand Junction. The ride will begin with a spectacular trek through the Colorado National Monument. After exiting the Monument, riders may elect to tackle a metric century through the beautiful farm country and surrounding areas of Fruita or opt for the classic 41-mile loop back to Grand Junction.

THE WEEKEND

Stick around after your ride for our Harvest Moon Celebration, complete with an expo, lunch, live entertainment and beer garden. Check out the latest cycling gear, accessories and nutrition products. You’ll find great bargains on apparel, equipment and more. Inform your friends and family that the expo is also open during the ride itself, so while you are on the course, they can enjoy the exhibits.
