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!
