Is a locally-organized and homegrown cycling challenge for the masses.

It welds cycling and community together on challenging neighborhood roads in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Turning eight in 2023, the FESTIVAL OF NEVER-ENDING ASCENDING can be easily customized to suit your fitness level and fondness for elevated frolicking.

Five laps (71.9 miles and 9,190' of elevation gain) is the signature ride, 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!

From our Personal Challenge Rides to our Epic Elevation Quests, the 719 Ride will elevate you to new heights of accomplishment and fun — Type I and Type II F-U-N!

The FUN won't stop until you do.
