Just curious as to who's doing it this year? I did it last year and the weather was great, except for the torrential rains, winds, hail down Independence Pass. Looks like there will be some good climbing this year too and a little farther in terms of mileage.Can't wait.

How well is the Colorado tour supported? What do you do for accomodations? Do they provide pitched tents? How much should I reasonably budget for this Tour?

Had a blast. It was a great ride. The climbs were long but not that bad. The weather was great. The air was thin for someone like me living at 300 feet above sea level (if that).

We got there 5 days early to acclimate. On the second day (we stayed near Rocky mtn National Park) it got into the 30's and snowed all day. It actually accumulated. I was pretty worried. The weather turned out to be great the next week. Colorado is a great place to ride. Have fun.
