Ride Through the Door of Personal Excellence

You're in Charge Here!
Built on a 14-mile loop course with 1,838' of elevation gain per lap, your Personal Challenge Ride will be challenging. That's why the marketers call it a Personal Challenge Ride.
Regardless of whether you're riding The Course That Cannot Be Defeated for the first time or you're back to ride further or faster than in the past, the Festival of Never-ending Ascending is a challenge that you're in charge of. It in fact does end.
Complete as many or as few laps as you want. Cut it short if it's feeling rough, or add a lap if you're feeling strong. Registration comes with all the laps you want. You're welcome!
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. The 719 Ride hopes to ride in the draft of the many existing and long-established Colorado cycling events we all love and to become a positive part of the Colorado Springs tradition and identity. FORZA Colorado Springs!
