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 (think 7,000 riders loving life) and the professional support out on course.

This year we have three road courses (40, 62 and 100 miles), two gravel routes (27 and 56 miles) and one great family ride (8 miles). It all goes down June 2 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 1-2 will feature scores of cool exhibitors, demos, live music, food and more.

Elephant Rock registration is open. Riders under the age of 18 are FREE and must be accompanied by an adult. Register now and join us on June 2, 2019!

  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
  • Volunteer with us for a few hours at @veloswap on Saturday, November 2 and help us make our 10,000 member movement even stronger! Click the link in our bio to sign up for your shift. 
Let’s bring more members to the movement and further strengthen our voice. Our goal is 200 new members in one BIG day. See you there! #bicyclecolorado
