Colorado Chapter J – Aurora, CO

Grand Pass Tour


Colorado Chapter J LOVES our Colorado Rocky Mountains! As such, we are proud to sponsor the Colorado Rocky Mountain Grand Pass Tour. As a way to encourage the Safe and Fun exploration of the Colorado Rockies, we invite you ride over at least 7 passes in any calendar year. We have identified 46 paved and 10 unpaved passes for you to explore across the entire state. These passes range in elevation from 7,834 feet to 14,264 feet above sea level. Denver, of course, is at 5,280 feet and has earned the nickname of the Mile High City.

Participation is easy! First, <read the official rules and get your application here. Then, ride seven Colorado passes during a single riding season, and take photographs of your bike at the top of each pass along with the sign at the summit of the pass (where safe to do so). Complete the application and submit it along with your photos and appropriate fees (please make checks payable to GWRRA Colorado Chapter J) as outlined on the application to:
