MESA COUNTY, Colo. (KKCO) Ripple effects from the federal government shutdown are being felt by nearly everyone, including cyclists.
The Icon Lasic Tour of the Moon Grand Cycling Classic was planning to use a course that included a route on the Colorado National Monument; however, the national park that encompasses the CNM is closed.
But the Tour of the Moon will still ride on.
They've decided to use an alternate 'government shutdown course' through Bangs Canyon Recreation Area.
