Join us for the Icon LASIK TOUR of the MOON, Grand Cycling Classic, on October 4, 2014 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 2014 ride will be limited to the first 2,000 registered participants. The Icon Lasik Tour of the Moon will work in partnership to raise funds for the Colorado Riverfront Commission and Bicycle Colorado.
The Icon LASIK TOUR of the MOON is a 62-mile (metric century) ride through the unique landscape of the American West. Cyclists will start and finish at Two Rivers Convention Center in downtown Grand Junction, Colorado. Participants will depart the Convention Center in the same manner as 2013 but will ride toward Fruita (instead of entering the east entrance of the Monument) and then may choose to ride the metric century through the beautiful farm country surrounding areas of Fruita and finishing with the spectacular ride through the Colorado National Monument, a unit of the National Park System (entering the west entrance) to the Convention Center. Or choose the “classic 41 mile ride entering the Colorado National Monument at the west entrance (instead of continuing on the metric century) and continue over the Monument on your way to your return at the Convention Center.
