Elephant Rock

Elephant Rock is a true Colorado cycling classic, dating back more than 30 years. This legend has endured for good reason — the excellent riding is matched by the festival atmosphere and the professional support out on course.

This year we have three road courses (44, 60 and 100 miles), one gravel/road route (28.5 miles) and one great family ride (8 miles). It all goes down June 6 in Castle Rock, Colorado, with all rides starting and finishing at Douglas County Fairgrounds.

And the rides are only half the party! The Colorado Bike Expo on June 6 will feature scores of cool exhibitors, demos, live music, food and more.

Register for Elephant Rock today! Riders under the age of 18 are FREE and must be accompanied by an adult.

Course Highlight: The 100-miler

This scenic and quiet route connects the country roads through the horse properties east of Franktown to the rolling hills of the Black Forest. It’s a perfect early season century, with beautiful and engaging miles that have some rollers but no mountain passes.

Don’t worry about stuffing your jersey pockets with food or drinks; we’ve got you taken care of with six (yes, six!) feed stops out on course. Please note: Permits are still pending and course and aid stations are subject to change.

Start Time: 5:30 – 7 a.m.
Miles: 100
Elevation Gain: 6,000ft

Sag wagons will rove the course with additional water and supplies, while providing roadside assistance to those experiencing mechanical problems or those who become too fatigued to finish. Please be prepared however to handle your own flats and minor repairs. Road Marshals, Colorado State Patrol and Rapid Response will be on hand to help make your ride safe and enjoyable.

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!
