Peaks and Pints Tour

Peaks and Pints is a five-night tour that starts on Aug. 30, covers a little more than 200 miles, and is punctuated with tastings a local brew house each night. The tour begins in nearby Ridgway and continues in a counter clockwise direction around the famous San Juan Skyway. The route includes four mountain passes that climb more than 10,000 feet. Riders will come into Ouray on Sept. 2 from Durango along a 72 mile route
that crosses three major mountain passes and traverses the Million Dollar Highway renowned for its stunning views. The pedal power riders must display to conquer the course will be rewarded with a frosty pint at Ourayle House brewery. That night, cyclists will stay at the Box Canyon Lodge (www.boxcanyonouray.com) where they can soak their weary muscles in the on-site hot springs tubs.
