COVID-19 Update:
March 27, 2020 (Afternoon Update)

Dear Lizard Head Cycling Family, 

Thank you for your friendship and patronage. 

As always, first and foremost, we are concerned with the safety of our guests and have been following events closely. The news is sobering and changing hourly.

Today, Lizard Head Cycling has postponed tours through May 2nd. It is time for all of us to pause, stay home and take care of one another.

Credits will be issued for future departures when brighter days have again bloomed. Credits will be honored indefinitely and will be transferrable.

Rolling forward, reaction to the virus will continue to evolve and we will proactively reach out to guests as our scheduled departures are affected and we will be updating this web page. Please feel free to reach out and ask questions via phone (970.728.5891) or email (

If you are considering postponing your tour that starts after May 2nd, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

UPDATE: For tours from July 2020 tours through fall 2020, we have reduced our final payment policy to 45 days from 90 days. NOTE: If you would like to apply your deposit towards a future tour versus cancelling a tour from July 2020 forward, at this time we can offer a full credit plus an additional $150- credit.

During this stressful time, riding your bike will never be more important to stay healthy in both body and mind. Stay safe out there and keep pedaling.

From all us at Lizard Head Cycling, blessings.

NOTE: When testing for the virus and antibodies (showing recovery) becomes widely available, people will again feel safe to travel.  Until that time, there will be fear and worry. When travel commences again, a test result will likely be required.
