2021 Bike and Beers Series - The Most Fun on Two Wheels!

719 Ride

July 16 2022
Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA

The locally-organized 719 Ride FESTIVAL OF NEVER-ENDING ASCENDING brings cycling and community together on a 14-mile loop course of neighborhood roads in Colorado Springs, CO.

It's AN ELEVATION CELEBRATION where repetition happens and beauty is found in a merry-go-round of uphilly-ness.

Five laps (71.9 miles) is the signature ride, but you can ride as many or as few laps as your mind can handle and your legs will allow.

From our Personal Challenge Rides to our Epic Elevation Quests, The Course That Cannot Be Defeated will elevate you to new heights of accomplishment and Type II F-U-N!
