2014 Colorado Classic 1000

June 21-22, 2014

Registration is now open for the 2014 Colorado Classic 1000, the signature long-distance riding event of the BMW Motorcycle Club of Colorado that challenges participants to complete a prescribed scenic 1000+ mile route within 24 hours. This year we depart the Denver area for Grand Lake, CO, the long way around! The route features many of our favorite high country backroads and mountain passes, crossing the Continental Divide five times along the way. Qualified finishers will receive a commemorative award in recognition of their accomplishment and the opportunity to register with the Iron Butt Association for SaddleSore 1000 certification.

Route opens at 5:00 AM, June 21, at the Holiday Inn in Lakewood,CO, and closes 24 hours later at the Grand Lake Lodge in Grand Lake, CO. Fee: $49 ($60 after May 10th). No entries accepted after June 7th. This event is limited to 60 entries and is expected to sell out early. All bikes are welcome. Contact: Eric Levy (303) 670-6073 or coloradoclassic1000@bmwmcc.org or visit us at www.bmwmcc.org

I participated in 2009, the last time that it was run. Eric is a great rallymaster!

Sounds like a great day! I'm not sure what kind of bike I'll have by then since I tend to change bikes a try different things quite often but I think I'll go ahead and sign up for this anyway. I'm sure I'll have something worthy... I did a saddle sore 1000 a couple years ago on a Cagiva Gran Canyon but never sent in the receipts and paperwork to make it official. I'm a lot more lazy about organizing paperwork and sending in receipts than I am about a long ride.

Edit: Registered and paid! In!

Another reason to keep working on the K75 project. That would be a fun break in run.

Nope! Read again, it clearly states that all bikes welcome. Look at the pics from the BMW site, all kinds of bikes on the last one. I don't have a Beemer and I'm going.

Oh Sweet.


Just did a quick glance at the ride and assumed only for BMW's.

Thanks for the correction. Will be looking into this one for sure.

In 2009, some notable bikes that finished were a custom Harley Softail chopper, a Honda Superhawk, and my Guzzi Lemans. Pretty good variety of bikes from the expected BMW K-LT and Honda Goldwings, on down to bikes you might not expect. Pretty fun bunch of people at the event.

Sign up ASAP if you want to do this. I booked my room at Grand Lake Lodge today and the "block" is already full. I booked a cabin at a slightly discounted rate but it sounds as if they are filling up FAST!

Looking forward to this ride!

Is there a winner? Or is it the distance and time only?

It's a SaddleSore1000, sponsored by BMW Club Colorado as a "group event".

Not a race. As in any SS1000, finishers complete 1000 miles within 24-hours. CC1000 has two mandatory fuel stops, used as check points.

The draw of this event is that it covers many of the "must-do" roads and passes in Colorado, while keeping almost exclusively on 2-lane roads.

It's a little different each time. Last event was 2009 and included some Northern New Mexico roads, and ended at Crested Butte Colorado. Other routes include Eastern Utah. I'm told this year's ride will be all inside Colorado, though the route won't be known until the night before.
