The Weld County Waltz is part The Winter Ralleye ride series, which has been happening annually since 2003. This is a Rules of the Road ride with a safety talk at the start of the ride reminding riders to 1) obey all city, county and traffic regulations 2) be reminded to be courteous to other users of the roads and trails and 3) this is a self supported ride, 81 miles long, each rider must carry all food water and emergency supplies needed. The ride starts at Bean Cycle on N. College. The ride starts at 7:30 am to minimize traffic disruptions and moves as quickly as possible to low traveled gravel roads.
