Check out the Event Calendar for great 2014 rides

Ride The Rockies

If you’re looking for a great ride this season, you’ll find more than two dozen Colorado bicycle events on our 2014 Event Calendar. Each listed event supports our work as Event Members.

The calendar includes big, familiar rides plus new and emerging events. It highlights the wonderful and diverse organized rides that occur across our state.

Scott Christopher, our development and outreach director, calls the Event Member program “mission critical.”

“Event members provide financial support that has contributed to evolving our relationships with the Colorado Department of Transportation and Colorado State Patrol over the years, making them important partners and collaborators,” Scott says.

The Colorado State Patrol distributes permits to bicycle events, and the transportation department manages road access.

“Both organizations and their leaders understand that bicycling is part of the Colorado brand and culture,” he says. “CDOT provides exceptional support for opening roads for events and more. The state patrol is instrumental in keeping the routes safe for everyone using the roads.”

We’ve also used Event Member support to organize a coalition of Colorado bicycle event leaders that works together to make bicycling better for all event participants.

If you organize a bicycle event and would like to become an Event Member, please contact Scott.

  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
  • Volunteer with us for a few hours at @veloswap on Saturday, November 2 and help us make our 10,000 member movement even stronger! Click the link in our bio to sign up for your shift.
