Ride Options

The 719 Ride is  all about the loop.

And the climbing, of course.

1,838' of climbing per lap

Mile for mile, the 719 Ride is as challenging as any single day ride in Colorado. With an Epic Climbing Score of 127.82, every mile turned has to be earned.

But it's a challenge that can be tailored specifically to your fitness level.

The 719 Ride is built on a 14-mile loop course. You can tap out when you've taken all you can stand and you can't stands no more.

Ride as many laps as your legs, lungs and schedule allow. Just go your distance.

New Course for 2020

Comes with 77' of bonus elevation per lap

2020 introduces a slightly modified 719 Ride parcours.

The changes were primarily made to eliminate the descent-halting stop signs installed on Centennial Blvd in 2019.

The amount of climbing on the 719 ride is so ridiculous it's awesome!

What changed?

Rather than beginning the Centennial Blvd. climb at the intersection with Flying W Ranch Rd. and Vindicator Dr. riders turn left on Joiner Rd. and then left on Allegheny Dr. before reconnecting with Centennial Blvd. on the way up to Orchard Valley Rd.

Riders retrace this Allegheny / Joiner "detour" back to Flying W Ranch Rd. after completing the West Woodmen, Rd. / Blodgett Dr. portion of the course.

Instead of climbing up Flying W Ranch Rd. to Wilson Rd., riders turn right onto Rossmere St. before eventually reconnecting with Wilson Rd. and returning to Flying W Ranch Rd. the usual way.

At the end of the lap, riders trade in the Stoneridge Dr. loop for a shorter loop on Ramsgate Ter. and Ellery Ln.

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%.
