Eriksen Cycles Tour de Steamboat

Eriksen Cycles Tour de Steamboat

DATE: Jul 18, 2015

Rocky Peak Productions (RPP) began in 2003 as three local bicycle enthusiasts attempting to make a living doing what we love; riding bikes and hosting events to encourage and invite riders of all levels to join in the fun.  In 2005 they resurrected a long distance, non-competitive road ride known as the Tour de Steamboat. This local road bike event started in the late 1970’s with bike building legend, Kent Eriksen, as a century road ride amongst local friends and riders.  In 2005, the Tour hosted 150 riders and celebrated the success over a keg of beer and a basket of Double Z BBQ.

Today, the Tour de Steamboat boasts the same vintage style with some refined conveniences including stocked aid stations, more cowbells, and one heck of a grand finale BBQ party (where complimentary massages are provided and the beer flows like wine)…and includes 800+ riders.  The beneficiaries are all local organizations and charities who will benefit from participants.  All (100%) of proceeds are donated to local organizations that reach out in powerful and effective ways in the community of the Yampa Valley.
