1998 Ride the Rockies, Reports from the Field

by Joseph King

Here are field reports from our 1998 tour of The Denver Post Ride The Rockies presented by NEWS4 Colorado. The official ride was 353 miles and featured 26,600 feet of climbing. The ride was all in Colorado starting in Boulder and ending in Frisco.

Seven of us from Wisconsin did the ride. Also included in our group was Lou from Cleveland who we met during last year's ride.

The ride is put on annually by the Denver Post. They send out applications in February and require that all applications be returned by the end of February. Then they choose a couple thousand at random. The ride usually takes place in mid-to-late June. The Denver Post is on-line: http://www.denverpost.com/. The ride is also online at http://www.ridetherockies.com where you can download applications when they become available.
