Steamboat Gravel Camp
Based out of our hometown of Steamboat Springs, you quickly discover why northwest Colorado is becoming a gravel cycling destination! Created for a more independent rider in mind, our Steamboat Gravel Camp focuses on riding the area’s premier gravel roads!
“We went on a 6 day very demanding road bike tour through Colorado with some 100 mile days and a lot of daily climbing. We passed through Boulder, Mount Evans, Frisco, Glenwood Springs, Aspen, Vail, and back to Boulder. The service was very friendly and super professional. JR is an experienced guide very attentive to the small details and super laid back. We really had a great trip and for sure we are considering Veloscapes for our next trip in the US.”

“Wow, another great cycling holiday with Veloscapes in the Colorado Rockies! This is our 4th trip with Veloscapes, and each time our expectations have been exceeded. J.R.’s background as a competitive cyclist, an experienced cycling mechanic, and a local travel guide make for a trouble free experience. Highlights of this trip included a mountain bike ride along the Continental Divide Trail and a road bike ride which was above 12,000 feet for 10 consecutive miles!”
“Professional and comprehensive service delivered seamlessly. JR kept 12 of us riding for our 3 day Gravel Grind Adventure in very reomte NW Colorado/southern Wyoming.”
The Skratch and Honey Stinger products provided during our rides were supplemented perfectly with real food. And lunches? Wow! The fresh lunch spreads were amazing. Being an avid rider himself, JR knows what rider want/need/crave. We fueled up with great sandwiches, humus, an assortment of super fresh vegetables and fruit, pickles, salty snacks, ice cold water, pellegrino, coke, etc.”
“Veloscapes is a 5-star bicycle tour company.
JR Thomson is a consummate professional who offers a 5-star product. I have utilized tour companies around the world and Veloscapes is among the best. JR plans and anticipates all of the uncertainties that comprise a tour on a bicycle in the mountains and delivers an excellent experience. This is a company I will use again and again.”
“My friends and I recently (early June 2021) did a 3 day Gravel Bike Tour around Steamboat Springs, CO. We worked with JR Thompson @Veloscapes to put the trip together.
I cannot say enough good things about JR. From our first phone call it was obvious to me that he really cared about his clients and the level of service being provided. He has a high level of integrity, professionalism and his knowledge of the terrain and conditions were excellent. JR even kept us updated (the night before) on road conditions to make minor tweaks because of road maintenance work. Always on time, very courteous, great SAG support, lunch and he went over and beyond on many occasions throughout our tour. He really cares and my friends and I had a fantastic experience.”
“I’ve done 10 years’ worth of tours in the US and Europe and JR/Veloscapes is a first-class operation. JR’s attention to detail, focus on safety but also flexibility were incredible.
And he’s a great person and a joy to be around! Highly recommend.”
