In 1986, the Denver Post created the premier Ride the Rockies Colorado Bicycle Tour. Over 1,500 riders came from around the country to participate in the six day, cross-state tour. Today, registration is limited to 2,000 cyclists and a lottery registration system was implemented due to the popularity of this event.
This stamp was planted just after the 2012 tour.

To find this stamp drive to Odell’s Brewery and park in the lot. On the west side of the lot there is a tree-lined berm. Just west of the berm is a fence. Follow that fence north until it ends at a corner. Just north of the corner of the fence is a spruce tree. On the west side of the spruce tree, under the branches and covered with mulch and needles is a camouflaged bag. Please re-hide carefully.....then enjoy the tastings at the Brewery!!
Please be discreet - this is a VERY busy place.
