Elevate your Cycling Style

Add Some FORZA to Your Life

FORZA is an Italian word meaning strength, literally force. And FORZA is what gets you through the 719 Ride.

It's the force of your legs and strength of mind. FORZA puts fire in your heart and steel in your legs. Its power makes things possible.

Wear Cycling Inspiration and Culture

Enhance Your Natural Allure and Class

Celebrate Your Accomplishment

"After the finish all the suffering turns to memories of pleasure, and the greater the suffering, the greater the pleasure. That is Nature’s payback to riders for the homage they pay her by suffering." — Tim Krabbe, author of The Rider

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%.

— Ottavio Severo

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!

Riding in the draft of many great and long-established Colorado cycling events, this Colorado Springs Original hopes to become a positive part of the Colorado Springs tradition and identity while celebrating the tradition, lore and culture of cycling and helping set the pace for cycling fun in the Rocky Mountain region.

The 719 Ride is the official cycling event of the Rocky Mountain State Games and is an official partner event in the 2024 Suarez Gran Fondo National Series and 2024 Gran Fondo World Tour.
