Hello PT Cruiser Family,
Cruise the Rockies XX is still on!!!
The organizing committee thought it would be helpful to provide an update due to the unusual events in recent history. We are up against some hurdles in organizing this year’s event.
First, the towns of Black Hawk and Central City are closed much the same as Las Vegas, NV is closed. Because of Colorado’s stay-at-home order the casinos have a limited staff manning the phones, which means that your ability to book a hotel room may not happen at this time. We will inform you when operators have returned to duty at the casinos.
Second, Clear Creek County has closed its roads to visitors in an attempt to stop the spread of the virus. This means that at this time it is impossible to drive potential cruising routes and we are limited to planning cruises by topographical maps. Needless to say, this hinders evaluating road conditions, regrouping road shoulders, rest stops, drive times and photo opportunities.
Third, Colorado Government Offices and non-essential businesses are closed. This currently prevents us from reserving a park for a picnic and contacting the highway department to find out about road repairs that might impact our cruising. And we cannot make reservations or book tours at restaurants and tourist venues.
HAVE FAITH! As things return to normal so will our efforts to organize a spectacular 20th year of Cruise the Rockies. We will keep you informed as we learn of any impactful changes, but likewise we will not base information to each of you on rumors or general speculation. We intend to provide you with rock solid information so that you will be accurately informed.
GET THOSE REGISTRATIONS IN! Rest assured that if conditions force us to cancel the event, we will forge a head with plans to go in 2021. We can refund your registration or apply it to the next year once the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 event.
Please pray for the health and safety of the Cruise the Rockies friends and families. God willing and the fevers don’t rise we will see each other in August.

Cruise The Rockies XX at Black Hawk, CO
Thursday August 13, 2020- Sunday August 16 2020
Classed As One Of The Top Cruising Events In America
In early 2001, a group of people got together in Denver Colorado to see if there was enough interest in forming aPT Cruiser club in Colorado. In a matter of a couple of hours and a short cruise in the Denver area, we were hooked and the Colorado PT Cruiser Club was formed. We would meet at a local restaurant for a good meal and a visit with each other about our cruisers and then it was off to go cruising somewhere in the mountains close to where we met for lunch. We enjoyed this so much that we decided to invite everyone from other States to come visit us and let us show them our beautiful State.
In June of 2001, we created what we called "Cruise The Rockies", and through web sites around the Country, we invited everyone to come cruise with us. The rest is history. Cruise The Rockies has become one of the best cruiser events in the Country, based on the simple fact of Cruising. Sure, we love to show off our cruisers to everyone, but the best part of Cruise The Rockies is meeting new friends that have the same interest in cars, getting to see old friends from around the Country that have been to previous events, and most of all, to show off the beautiful mountain areas of Colorado. You can say that the Colorado PT Cruiser Club is a travel agent for the State.
The second year of Cruise The Rockies was cruising over Independence Pass. While the committee was on our "pre-cruise" check, we were coming over the pass and one of the members said something that has become our motto.
