Ride the Rockies, an annual bicycle tour that runs from Telluride to Colorado Springs, zipped through Ignacio on Tuesday, June 11. The tour’s 2,000 cyclists spent the previous night in Durango and were Pagosa Springs-bound before the end of the day. Organizers set up a station in the parking lot east of the SunUte Community Center multipurpose field where participants could catch their breath and make a pit stop. Proceeds from the event benefit The Denver Post Community Foundation.
