Steamboat Springs — Spots for the seventh annual Tour de Steamboat rapidly are filling up.
"It's on target to be growing like that," ride director Katie Lindquist said. "It's a popular event with lots of people doing it. It's local, and we've got a reputation that it's affordable and fun."
The noncompetitive road bicycle ride features three rides. The 40-mile ride to Stagecoach is full. The 110-mile Gore Gruel ride as of midday Tuesday had 31 spots left, and the 26-mile Sidney Peak Ranch ride had 22 spots left. The 110-mile ride is $90, and the 26-mile ride is $50.
All rides begin at 7 a.m. Saturday at 12th and Yampa streets.

The event also includes a benefit dinner from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday at the Sheraton Steamboat Resort, hosted by Prudential Steamboat Realty. The cost for the benefit dinner is $25 per person, and children younger than 8 are free. Tickets are available at http://www.tourdesteamboat.com or at Prudential. In addition to the dinner, there will be silent auction items up for bid, including trips, tickets and apparel.
