FORZA is an Italian word meaning power and strength. And FORZA is what gets you through the 719 Ride.
It's power in your legs and strength of mind.
FORZA puts fire in your heart and steel in your legs. It makes things possible. It overcomes.
FORZA! Andiamo! Come on! Let's Go!
If you only buy one jersey or t-shirt this year...
I urge you to purchase a 719 Ride jersey or t-shirt. They are made to wow the eyeballs and the wallet while complimenting your natural ruggedness and beauty. The effect 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. 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.
