The 719 Ride is a 100% Grassroots group cycling ride.

It's an unsponsored, unmarked, self-supported, ride at your own risk, obey all traffic laws, assume all liability and responsibility for your actions, word-of-mouth, group bike ride on a loop course with tons of climbing. It's where repetition happens and beauty is found in a merry-go-round of laps.

Each lap of the 719 Ride parcours is just over 14 miles and comes with 1,838' of up.

Five laps (71.9 miles) is the signature ride. Ride as many laps as your legs, lungs and schedule allow.

The 719 Ride starts at Chipeta Elementary School, at the intersection of Flying W Ranch Road and Ramsgate Terrace, on the northwest side of Colorado Springs at 7:19 a.m on July 19 each year.

If you can't show up and ride on July 19, try a DIY 719 whenever you can.

Mile for mile,
this is one of the most challenging single day
climbing events in colorado.

If you are only going to do one bike event this year,

Then I urge you to participate in the 719 Ride on the west side of Colorado Springs. It has miles and miles of climbing the same loop over and over again. A total brain meltdown is required to go the distance. The experience is absolutely stunning, and I recommend it 100%.
