Cruise The Rockies XVIII at Manitou Springs, CO
Thursday August 9, 2018- Sunday August 12 2018
Classed As One Of The Top Cruising Events In America
EVERYONE; we have a lot of outdoor social gatherings as part of this year's CTR, so please do not forget to bring folding lawn chairs. Also Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs has dense urban traffic, so having a 2-way radio in good working order is the best solution to keep everyone on route when the group gets separated in traffic.
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.
