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 explore and ride over at least 7 Colorado mountain passes in any calendar year. We have identified 54 paved and 8 unpaved passes for you to explore across the entire state. These passes range in elevation from 7,352 feet to 14,160 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 at least 7 Colorado passes your first calendar year to earn your base pin or, if you already have that, your next year bar. Don’t forget to 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, and sometimes it isn’t. We get that.).

Complete the application and submit it along with your photos and appropriate fees (please make checks payable to GWRRA Colorado Chapter J) as outlined in the application to:

Don’t worry if you already have your base pin from prior years. Just keep hanging your new year bars right underneath!
