The 719 Ride

A Celebration of Elevation on Saturday, July 15, 2023

A Homegrown Colorado Springs Cycling Challenge

and Festival of Never-Ending Ascending

At Chipeta Elementary School

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

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 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. Penny farthings are welcome!

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 fun — Type I and Type II F-U-N!

The 719 Ride Was Proud to be the Official Cycling Event of the 2022 Rocky Mountain State Games.

If you only do one bike event this year...

I urge you to choose the 719 Ride on the west side of Colorado Springs. It has miles and miles of climbing the same upward tilting loop over and over again. The experience is absolutely stunning, and I recommend it 719%.

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!

The 719 Ride is a Colorado Springs Original riding in the draft of many great and long-established Colorado cycling events, and it hopes to become a positive part of the Colorado Springs tradition and identity while helping set the pace for cycling in the Rocky Mountain region.
