2016 ICON Eye Care Tour of the Moon
Scheduled for the first weekend in October, 2016 get your rooms booked now. Many hotels are already sold out and the ride will also sell out. Look for some of ICON's patients who are professional cyclists both active and retired to join us on this ride with perhaps a few special guests that are pro athletes in other sports!
The weather in Grand Junction the first week of October is usually perfect for cycling. With morning lows in the 50s and afternoon highs in the 70s.
2014 & 2015 Tour of the Moon Recaps
The Tour of the Moon was a sell out in 2014 & 2015. With perfect weather and an open National Monument, the day of great fall riding could not have been better for both years.
2013 Government Shutdown Route Recap
The ICON Eyecare Tour of the Moon organizers simply rock. In June 2013 they brought up the possibility of the National Monument getting caught in the potential government shutdown. We said no way, "Congress would never let that happen!" Well I'm glad they didn't listen to us..
The organizers laid out an awesome route that included 15 miles of climbing with three long pitches of up to 17%! Steep climbs are hard to find in Colorado so it's fair to say that we all appreciated the challenge. Tom Danielson stated after the ride that it was one of the best climbs that he has seen in Colorado and the descent was worthy of the famous descents in Europe.
