Save the date for the 2019 Park 2 Park Challenge! Read on for details about the 2018 ride:

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.

  • Thanks to everyone who came out wanting to do their part to make our streets safer at last night’s Bicycle-Friendly Driver course in Lakewood! We did hear feedback that our cookies were too small—we heard you, we’ll try and do better 😂.
  • Now that’s just mean. No bike (or bicyclist!) deserves this!
  • Beautiful day for a bike commute. #bicyclecolorado
