As for the Rockin' The Rockies Tour Rockin' 2013 was the first year and was a great success. The 2014 tour is longer and comprises five days riding along some of the most scenic and technical roads in the Rocky Mountains.
For 2104 donations for the tour were made to Longmont Humane Society. During the devastating Colorado fires and floods of 2013 Longmont Humane provided shelter, medical assistance and comfort to many displaced and injured animals. Through diligent work they were also able to care for and reunite animals with their families. Other animals were found new homes as needed. The mass overflow of need has placed Longmont Humane in financial dire straits. We are pleased to provide some financial assistance.
