Tour of the Canyons is a collaboration with San Juan LEADS Serves and consists of an epic bike ride consisting of blinded veterans and their “pilots” riding from Grand Junction to Moab. Spanning over 250 miles, this five day journey is a mixture of road and off-road riding through some of the majestic canyons of Colorado and Utah. At the end of each day, riders get to sit back and relax at a hut that is stocked with goodies and off the beaten path from civilization.
Our goal in this collaboration is to memorialize those that gave the ultimate sacrifice and to share the experience with the local communities. Taking place from May 7-11th this will be our 2nd annual ride. A little sooner than Memorial Day this year due to scheduling conflicts, but the meaning behind the ride stays the same. The team will consist of four blinded veterans, their pilots and a small support crew.

Tour of the Canyons is a challenging bike ride that takes place near Memorial Day to memorialize those that lost their life while serving. The ride will start near Grand Junction or Montrose, Colorado and end in Moab, Utah. We are considering reversing the route this year. Total distance is between 250-275 miles. After the ride, we may spend time with the local community to share the experience of the week.
This is a challenging ride and applicants should be in good physical condition. Prior tandem bicycle experience is not required, but strongly recommended.
Volunteers do not have to be veterans and we have spots open from driving the lead/sag vehicles, piloting a tandem or general support riders.
