Colorado Classic – fundraiser & Zwift ride

Due to COVID safety concerns our four day bike race has been cancelled but our mission carries on! We are doubling down on championing support of women’s racing and have launched the #WeRide for Women fundraiser and virtual Zwift ride.

This campaign is intended to financially support the teams who would have attended the Colorado Classic. Help us raise funds and join us on Zwift while riding with 16+ world-class pro women cyclists! Donations are not mandatory to participate in the ride, but are appreciated!

Ride Details:

  • Date: Wednesday, July 29, 2020 @ 6 pm MST

  • Course: Figure 8

  • Pace: 1.8-2.0 W/kg

The ride will be lead by Olympic Silver Medalist and World Champion, Mari Holden, and will be  an easy-paced social group ride. No drops and no riders left behind as Meredith Miller, former national road racing champion keeps us moving and motivated from the back of the pack as the Celebrity Sweeper.

Don’t miss out on a chance to win prizes from our partners and chat with these badass athletes! Join the ride to win prizes from The North Face, Vans and Smartwool. Keep your eyes peeled for some fan favorites from Team Twenty20, Rally, Lux and DNA. See full list of prizes and participating athletes at coloradoclassic.com/zwift.

We are excited to have some fun, but let’s also raise some money for the women’s peloton!

Pledge to support women in bicycling

Take the pledge to show your support for women racers and pledge for equality in cycling. There is a gross disparity in women’s pro cycling. Less pay. Less TV exposure. Less opportunity. We believe closing the gender gap for women’s sports must be done.

Show your support! You can help bring equality to women’s pro cycling — and all women’s sports — by signing the pledge. Together #WeRide. Click here to take the pledge.

Bicycling Magazine named the Colorado Classic one of 13 races in the world not to be missed this year. Don’t miss it!

We’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to denverfoodrescue.org or dug.org to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
