The tour gets several new features to better the event while keeping a number of Tour de Vineyards’ past traditions. Beyond a new logo, the Tour gets a new start/finish in downtown Palisade and is working on a 2nd route option into scenic Mesa County. Most notably is a new longer 58 mile option for more exploration through Palisade’s wine country. Registration for Sept 16 event is open now, with early bird discounts through May 15.

  • Join Moots at their Steamboat Sprigs Ranch Rally this June – Back for its fourth year, they are gearing up for the Moots-Colorado Ranch Rally 2017. Limited to 150 riders it’ll be a day of riding and raising money for the Community AG Alliance of Steamboat. The fundraiser ride explores the roads less traveled around Moots HQ, where you’ll meet new friends and challenge yourself. There are no awards other than seeing the amazing countryside around Steamboat Springs and meeting some great people along the way. Where the pavement ends, the fun begins. Moots.com
