Color your life with orange
ORANGE CAN BE HARD
FORZA is an Italian word meaning power and strength. And FORZA is what you need to complete the 719 Ride.
You need power in your legs for the 9,100+ feet of climbing in our signature ride, and you need strength of mind to press on after each repetitious draining lap.
FORZA puts fire in your heart and steel in your legs. It makes things possible. It overcomes.
FORZA! Andiamo! Come on! Let's Go!

Celebrate your Time on The Course That Cannot be Defeated
Evoking the look and feel of classic cycling posters, this 13″x19″ poster created by Colorado Springs graphic designer Hannah Unger is printed on 111 pound card stock with a glossy finish to honor your sweaty shininess and effort.
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. 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!
