Mile for mile, the 719 Ride is one of the most challenging single-day cycling events in Colorado. It is a Festival of Never-ending Ascending.
The 719 Ride is a 100% self-supported, grassroots, group cycling
It’s a locally-organized, unsponsored, word-of-mouth, Festival of Never-Ending Ascending held on a loop course of neighborhood roads. It’s where repetition happens and beauty is found in a merry-go-round of uphilly-ness.
Five laps (71.9 miles) is the signature ride, but you can ride as many laps as your brain can handle and your legs and lungs allow.
Without any on-course support or aid stations and ridden when the thermometer is typically in the low-to-mid 90s, the 719 Ride is as challenging as any single-day ride in Colorado. The course is relentless, unwavering and never defeated.
But the 719 Ride is a challenge that can be tailored to any fitness level.
Ride as many laps as your brain can handle and your legs allow. Your 719 Ride adventure won’t end until you choose to end it.
