Texclydes,

I think you are referring to the Bicycle Tour of Colorado (BTC). Tour of Colorado (TOC) is actually a series of road races. You should contact BTC directly with your question. BTC is having their 2015 route announcement this evening at 7 p.m. MST.

Right, I meant BTC (bicycle tour of colorado, http://www.bicycletourcolorado.com/) which you said you have done twice. How does it compare to your CO experience?

I have not done a BTC ride. I responded because I don't think cyclingbeaver will be back on this forum any time soon.

BTC has a limit of 1500 riders. In that regard, it would be similar to CO. It does not provide the amenities CO does. See the 2014 brochure for a better idea of what is provided.

In order to view/participate in their forums, you have to be a registered rider... too bad. That would be the easiest way to obtain answers to your questions.
