The 719 Ride Elevation Celebration
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.
And The Friendly Neighbors We Support
Chipeta Elementary School is our velo venue (where we start and finish) and a Colorado Springs elementary school community nurturing and challenging its children to be self-directed and collaborative learners.
A Colorado Springs Original
First conceived and ridden in 2016, the 719 Ride aspires to be a bicycle event that contributes to the culture and community of Colorado Springs. FORZA Colorado Springs!
Riding in the draft of many great and long-established Colorado cycling events, this Colorado Springs Original hopes to become a positive part of the Colorado Springs tradition and identity while celebrating the tradition, lore and culture of cycling and helping set the pace for cycling fun in the Rocky Mountain region.
Since 2022, the 719 Ride has been the official cycling event of the Rocky Mountain State Games. It was also an official partner event in the 2023 Suarez Gran Fondo National Series and 2023 Gran Fondo World Tour.
