Distances: 14 to 200 miles
Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs


Is a locally-organized and homegrown cycling challenge for the masses that can be easily customized to suit your fitness level and fondness for elevated frolicking.

Five laps of The Course That Cannot Be Defeated is the signature ride (71.9 miles and 9,190' of elevation gain), but you can ride as many or as few laps as your mind can handle and your legs will allow...all for the same price!

Offering several course options, all on neighborhood roads, and donating a portion of each registration to Chipeta Elementary School and Kids on Bikes, the 719 Rides welds cycling and community together from beginning to end.

From its Personal Challenge Rides to its Epic Elevation Quests, the 719 Ride is like gelato for the soul and like wrestling a gorilla.

Elevate yourself to new heights of accomplishment and fun. Register for some Type I or Type II F-U-N beginning March 11, 2024.
