Colorado’s Ride

August 19 – 23, 2024


Colorado’s Ride showcases one of the most scenic areas of Colorado through the lens of two amazing overnight towns, Durango and Pagosa Springs. Add in visits to Silverton, the beautiful country in La Plata and Archuleta counties, and amazing views from Wolf Creek Pass you will experience some of the best of the San Juan region.

By minimizing transfers and maximizing community engagement with local attractions, residents, and businesses you will have more time to relax and spend less time packing and unpacking, and hurrying to the next ride. This equals fewer logistics and more cycling!

You will enjoy five days of weekday cycling that hopefully offers quieter roads and provides a safer experience. You may want non-cycling friends and family to join you on the weekend before or after and extend your visit. We will lower the impact on the local community and utilize facilities and hotels at less demanding times. Riders will have three nights in Durango and two in Pagosa Springs.

  • DON’T DELAY: We’re placing another order for #BicycleColorado masks made by our friends at @primalwear TOMORROW (5/14) at noon! Click the link in our bio to get yours now!
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!
