Colorado Riding Tips

  • Helmets are NOT required in Colorado.
  • Sunscreen is highly recommended.
  • Afternoon thunderstorms are common during the summer; this is especially true in the mountains. These storms can produce heavy rain and large hail, therefore it is advised that riders check the weather forecast each morning before heading out, and carry either a helmet or something to cover your face.
  • Colorado has four seasons, these are Fall, Winter, Spring, and Construction. Keep alert for gravel on all the roads you travel, and especially in the mountains.
  • Be alert for wild animals in the road (deer, elk, etc.) in the road, especially in the early mornings and late afternoons.
