HOW WE ROLL
Full 1

Roll Massif, explained

We offer iconic courses from the high desert to alpine terrain, with a range of distances and challenges to suit most all abilities.

We don’t have categories; you choose your course, how you want to ride it and who you want to ride with. 

Go ahead, give gravel grinding a go. If hot laps are your thing, team up with MTB buddies at Sunrise to Sunset. And don’t forget the classics; you’ll have to roll at least one of Colorado’s supreme road tours or ride the Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway in Northern New Mexico.

Oh, and about the pronunciation… it’s Roll Mas-seef; the last syllable rhymes with Great Barrier Reef.

 

Is it a ride or a race?

Neither; Roll Massif is a sportive! You get to choose your own adventure, and ride at whatever pace you like. You can take the timed segments as seriously or as frivolously as you like. Even if you choose to ride hard and fast, we encourage you to stop and take in the scenery, wait for your friends, and enjoy the feed stops. 

Bucket list road cycling… with breathtaking high desert scenery and beautiful roads. You get the benefit of partial road closures, on-course aid stations, live music, good food, and a beer garden waiting for you at the finish.

Veteran cycling journalist Jason Sumner, on Tour of the Moon

We really enjoyed the mix of relaxed riding and competitive elements at the Tour de Vineyards. It allowed us to enjoy the day and the beautiful scenery, and then put in a good effort on the climb up Reeder Mesa. It’s the perfect balance.
