The Route

One of Colorado’s newest and most challenging events. The Colorado Park 2 Park Challenge is a single-day Gran Fondo from Denver’s City Park to Winter Park Resort, climbing three of Colorado’s toughest mountains with over 11,000 vertical feet of climbing. A group rolling start begins the day as you head towards Golden riding through downtown Denver and then tackling Lookout Mountain, Squaw Pass and Berthoud Pass.

Fully supported and personalized with a limited field of riders. The event wraps up in Winter Park Resort with an achievement celebration.
