Cycle the City on September 23
On Saturday, September 23, 2023, join us for Denver’s epic urban cycling experience at the Coldwell Banker Denver Century Ride (DCR) presented by Bank of America.
DCR is one of our favorite events of the year, as it gives folks the chance to discover the bikeable streets, trails and parks across the Denver Metro area with your friends and family. The ride starts and finishes at the Shops at Northfield. You’ll have your choice of 25-, 50-, 85- and 100-mile courses, fully supported with well-supplied aid stations and SAG vehicles. Depending on your selected distance, you’ll get to cruise though City Park, past Coors Field, up Lookout Mountain and down the Hogback. Which route will you choose to ride this year?
