The Denver Century Ride hits the streets again this June for a full day of family friendly dun and excitement. Voted “Best Cycling Event” by Competitor Magazine, the event features bicycle courses for all ages and skill levels, with events ranging from a 100-mile ride to a colorful bicycle parade. Almost 2,000 riders are expected for the event that includes routes through some of the city’s most beautiful neighborhood streets and bike paths.
The 100-mile Century Ride initially includes hairpin turns at Lookout Mountain, views of Red Rocks and a trip through the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge.
The 75-mile ¾ Century lets riders enjoy the excitement of the Century ride while bypassing the difficult Lookout Mountain climb.
The 50-mile ½ Century is perfect for riders looking for a shorter course and fewer climbs. The route circles the city and offers great views of the mountains.
The 25-mile ¼ Century course travels along the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, Parkfield Lake Park and Delany Community Farm.
And be sure to bring the little ones to the Macy’s Bike Parade – a fun event, where they decorate their bicycles, tricycles or balance bikes and cruise down Main Street to a Post Ride Street Party filled with family friendly activities and great food.
The Denver Century Ride will be held on Saturday, June 14th. Registration is available through April 15th and costs $10 - $72 per rider, depending on ride choice. Participation in the parade is free.
