Culture

Colorado has a rich history of great cycling and World Class Bicycle Racing. The Red Zinger and the Coors Classic, have paved the way for The US Pro Challenge which has proved to be America’s greatest race. The entire state comes alive with this event. Nothing could be more exciting for any bike lover than to share in the excitement that is cycling in Colorado!

Food & Wine

It goes without saying that Colorado is craft beer country. In addition, tasty curiosities such as Palisade Peaches hail from the western borders of Colorado, a quaint town called Palisade, in Grand Valley. Then there are Rocky Mountain oysters, Colorado Lamb, Rocky Ford Cantaloupe, bison and a typical sweet corn called “olathe” – to name a few.

Landscape

Towering mountain peaks, snow-filled valleys, open meadows, and jagged rock sculptures fill the eye at Rocky Mountain National Park.
