Join us for the ICON Eyecare TOUR of the MOON, Grand Cycling Classic, on September 30, 2017 in Grand Junction / Colorado National Monument (a unit of the National Park System).
The Tour of the Moon was made famous in the 1980’s Coors Classic and later in the cycling movie American Flyers. Today, it continues to be considered one of the premier recreational rides in the western United States. The breathtaking, high desert scenery and beautiful roads make this an epic day of cycling.
The 2017 ride will be limited to the first 2,000 registered participants. The Icon Eyecare Tour of the Moon will work in partnership to raise funds for the Colorado Riverfront Commission and Bicycle Colorado.
Colorado is full of classic road bike rides. Many of them involve difficult mountain passes and extreme altitude.
The Colorado National Monument ride is different. Located on the northeastern edge of the Colorado Plateau on the far western side of the state, Colorado National Monument offers two-wheeled visitors endless vistas of dramatic red rock canyons and monoliths, pinyon-juniper forests, three seasons of wildflowers and a symphony of canyon wrens on most any given day.
