2020 Tour de Steamboat COVID EDITION Online Auctio

To our Tour de Steamboat Riders Sponsors and Supporters

Our sponsors say “we are in”!
Our beneficiaries say “game on”!
Our Yampa Valley businesses and volunteers say “how can we help”?
Our local riders ask “can we still ride”?
Our answer is, “YES, let’s do this!”

It’s with excitement we announce the COVID-19 Edition of the 2020 Tour de Steamboat (CE-TDS). Not a “sorry, see you next year” event, but an actual “train for ” and “ride the distance” wherever you live event. This year, the Tour de “You” is a day you choose to ride the original route you planned to ride, wherever you live. If you live in Steamboat, ride the actual routes, if you live out of town, map out a similar distance and profile, envisioning Northwest CO while you ride!

Kicking off on Saturday, July 18th through Sunday, August 2, 2020, we encourage you to enjoy a day of riding. Stop along the way, take pictures of your ride and the sights you see. Share with the TDS community your Tour de “You” ride on our Facebook and Instagram pages and on Ride with GPS. In fact, post your route, share with others who live near you, and want to ride your version of the CE-TDS. The idea is you are riding together, and apart (we request that you please keep a safe distance from each other).

This a fundraiser for four great nonprofits serving the valley. This year we have chosen to highlight our many contributions from our sponsors and supporters with this auction. All proceeds from this auction will directly go to the beneficiaries listed below.

The Tour de Steamboat steering committee has chosen to give proceeds to the following community-focused organizations that reach out in powerful and effective ways in the community of the Yampa Valley:
