If you’ve seen the Kevin Costner movie called “American Flyers” then you’re familiar with a segment of the race they called the “Tour of the Moon”.
This segment was actually filmed on the Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction, CO. There is a fee for entry that includes bikes but if you have a national parks pass you’re covered. Anyway, I hope this short video gives you a feel for what it’s like to experience the “Tour of the Moon”. In late September you can participate in an organized ride called “The Tour of the Moon” and experience it for yourself. It is a well run event and the scenery is amazing!
