Fall Blaze Bicycle Tour celebrates the mountains and benefits cycling team

Friday, August 24, 2018

It’s back! Last held in 2015, FLC’s popular annual Fall Blaze Bicycle Tour is back on the road. This year’s tour kicks off on Saturday, September 29, with a cannon blast and a police escort. All three ride options are followed by a party on campus.

The Fall Blaze is not a race -- it's a chance for FLC community members, supporters, friends, alumni, students, staff, and anyone else who just loves to ride to enjoy a fun and safe scenic group tour through the autumn colors of southwestern Colorado, all while supporting the student athletes on the Skyhawks cycling team, ranked #3 in the nation in USA Cycling's Division I.

The Fall Blaze is open to cyclists of all skill levels and abilities, offering tour options of 37, 60, and 100 miles. All three fully-supported rides set off from campus and include food and aid stations, support vehicles, and a party at the finish line back in the center of campus.

All proceeds benefit the Fort Lewis College Cycling Scholarship, awarded to men’s and women’s cycling team members with at least a 2.50 GPA and who are also active in the community. Awards range from $500 to $1,000.
