Ride 2 End ALZ Spring Virtual Challenge

Register today for the #Ride2EndALZ Spring Virtual Challenge on April 3, 2022!

The #Ride2EndALZ is a flexible, fun, and inclusive environment for riders of all skill levels on all types of bikes. You can ride any type of bike, on any day, and for as many miles as your heart desires.

No starting line. No looking for parking. No recording and reporting mileage. You don’t even have to leave home if you don’t want to!

The #Ride2EndALZ Spring Challenge is virtual in nature, but that doesn’t mean it’s “virtual” as we’ve all come to know that word. Many riders will head outside to their favorite trails and paths while others will hop on their exercise bikes just down the hall. Do you like to get on the stationary bike at a gym or studio? Great! You can join us, too!

The Spring Challenge doesn’t have a registration fee or fundraising minimum. For those riders that do decide to fundraise, there are some awesome perks when you hit certain milestones.

Come join riders from all 50 states and many nations around the world, all experiencing the #Ride2EndALZ Spring Challenge in a unique way. With 100% of funds raised going directly to Alzheimer’s research, you can rest assured that your support is getting to where it needs to go.

Your Event Day Experience:

Exclusive Opening Ceremony

At 8am Central on ride day, be sure to check out the Alzheimer’s Association main Facebook page as we will go live with a 30-minute opening ceremony. The program will include inspirational rider stories, shout-outs to our top teams and individual fundraisers and the national anthem.

After the Opening Ceremony

If you are riding outside, you can go ahead and take off! Ride wherever you want to, for as many miles as you want. All we ask if that you take pics and show us how much fun you’re having! Before, during, and after ride pictures can be posted to any social media platform using #Ride2EndALZ. You can also email them to ride@alz.org.

If you are riding a traditional bike, but want to ride indoors on your smart trainer – no problem! We’ll have a live, professionally announced Zwift ride for you starting at 8:30am Central. You’ll be able to pedal along with riders from all over the world on a virtual course. Keep an eye here for details as ride day nears.

If you are riding your indoor cycling/stationary exercise bike, join us for a very special #Ride2EndALZ themed class, led by a professional instructor! The class will air here on this page and on the Alzheimer’s Association Facebook page. The instructor will lead you through a fun, fast-paced workout complete with shout-outs to our top teams and fundraisers.

To ride the class, put your bike in manual mode (‘Just Ride’ setting for Peloton, ‘Manual Ride’ setting for NordicTrac) and follow along with the instructor.

You can also join a ride offered on the interface of your particular brand of indoor cycling….you just won’t get that custom #Ride2EndALZ experience.

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!
