Seven Hundred and Nineteen

Frequently asked questions

about the 719 Ride.

Well, maybe not that many

What is the 719 Ride?

The 719 Ride is 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. It occurs every year on July 19 on the northwest side of Colorado Springs.

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

It takes a special type of person to be attracted to a ride with lots of elevation gain and an even special-er person to embrace repeating the same climbs over and over and over again. Plus two more overs.

The aspirational side of the 719 Ride is to create something that contributes to the culture, community and multi-layered identity developing in Colorado Springs. The 719 Ride hopes to be a positive part of the city's traditions and identity.

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%.
