The Colorado Front Range
The Colorado Front Range is the eastern flank of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. It's a dramatic transition over a distance of 35 miles from the Colorado Plains at 5,000 ft. to the Continental Divide at 13,000 ft. (You will not be riding that high.)

The Ride
The Colorado Front Range 1200 is four loops out of Louisville, CO. The four-loop idea has proven successful in a number of Grand Randonnées. It makes logistics easier both for riders and volunteers. You'll ride a mixture of mountain terrain, canyons, and plains — a variety of landscapes to experience. While this is a new event, our route is based on our traditional Solstice 1000k (three loops) plus a 200k permanent route for the fourth loop.

The RideWithGPS links under the  Prelim Route »  link to the left correspond to the 1000k + the extra 200k. Expect the route to evolve as we tweak distances and terrain.
