We live in one of the most amazing areas to ride a bike. The question you have to ask yourself though is how much do you love riding a bicycle? Your answer will help you decide if you want to ride the 30, 50, 75 or 100 mile route for this year's Tour of the Valley. This year's event is set for Saturday, August 29.

One aspect that is new to the ride this year is family pricing. One price registers two adults and all the kids 15 and under.

All proceeds benefit local organizations and have previously supported Colorado Mesa University Cycling, the Colorado Plateau Mountain Bike Trail Association and health education and wellness activities offered free to the public by Community Hospital.
