Plan a pilgrimage to Castle Rock this summer for the 27th annual Subaru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival. This exciting event brings more that 7,500 cyclists together to ride, celebrate and start off the Colorado cycling season in style.
Whether you’re a road rider or prefer the thrill of a backwoods single track, this popular biking event offers something fun for cyclists of all ages to enjoy. With a choice between a 100-mile road course, a 62-mile road course and a 32-mile road course, road riders can find a race to fit their interests and abilities. Off-road riders can enjoy the challenging 27-mile canyon course, families can participate together on the 8-mile family ride, and kids 5-12 years old can get into the action at the Shimano Youth Series event.
After a day on the pavement or pathway, celebrate your victory at the Party at the Rock post-ride Picnic and Cycling Expo. Participants can enjoy a delicious, healthy and complimentary lunch, prize drawings for bikes, apparel, and other gear, and live music from KBCO. Friends, family and fans can join you for lunch for just $13 each.
Stop by the Expo after lunch and peruse myriad vendor booths, learn more about the sport from industry pros and check out the latest gear from top names like Specialized, Shimano, ShaverSport, Rudy Project, SOS Socks, Clif Bar, and Optimize Endurance.
The Subaru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival starts at 5:30am on Sunday, June 1st at the Douglas County Fair Grounds Events Center, located just outside of downtown Castle Rock.
Situated just a short drive from the Douglas County Fair Grounds in Castle Rock, the Holiday Inn Denver Cherry Creek offers inviting accommodations, modern services and fabulous on-site dining for a comfortable stay after a long ride in Denver.
