2013 - Tour de Vineyards

Tour de Vineyards is a great way to celebrate the start of fall, by joining in this bicycle tour of Colorado's Wine Country. This 25-mile ride through the vineyards of the Western Slope (on paved roads with a few hills) gives cyclists an opportunity to pass by the area's wineries, as well as acres of fruit orchards, located in the Grand Valley, near Palisade, Colorado.

Tour participants receive a colorful T-shirt featuring the artwork of Buffalo Kaplinski, course map, welcome packet, "peaches" at Carlson Vineyards and post-ride pasta salad brunch. The 20th Anniversary Colorado Mountain Winefest "Festival in the Park" begins shortly after the ride concludes and features free wine sampling from over 50 of the state's wineries, great jazz acts, and is an additional highlight to the day's activities at beautiful Palisade Riverbend Park.
