Welcome to the Colorado 600

The Colorado 600 is a five day ride and trail symposium through the Collegiate Range in central Colorado.  Each day the riders will learn about what is facing the trail riding enthusiast and the issues facing our trails in Colorado, Utah and New Mexico.  Riders are able to bring two or three bikes, giving them the option of single track, dual-sport or adventure trails.  You’ll get to choose your ride for the day based on what you’re in the mood for.  All proceeds from the ride will go to support the Colorado Trails Preservation Alliance.

The Trails Preservation Alliance (TPA) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with its principal goal focused on preserving the sport of motorized single-track trail riding. The TPA regularly supports all forms of Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) recreation. The TPA acts as an advocate for OHV recreation and takes the necessary actions to ensure that both the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management allocate a fair and equitable percentage of access to trail riding on public lands, educating user groups on trail etiquette, and supporting the establishment and operation of local, off-road motorcycle clubs.
