Ride to End ALZ

Register today for the Ride to End ALZ in Fort Collins on Sunday, June 13, 2021!

Whether you live out-of-state, plan to drive up from Denver or even if you call Fort Collins home, this ride weekend will be an elite event unlike any other! Fort Collins is made for lovers of the great outdoors and boasts the title of no. 1 city in America for cycling and Craft Beer Capital of Colorado.


Ride to End ALZ is a fully supported event for a range of riders, whether you’re a novice cyclist, weekend warrior or avid enthusiast. The Fort Collins Ride to End ALZ has four route options – 20, 50,70, and 100 miles – that challenge you to go the distance to fight Alzheimer’s.

All routes start and finish at Canvas Stadium on the Colorado State University campus in beautiful Fort Collins, CO.

The 20-mile course is perfect for beginners that want to enjoy the urban tour of this historic city along with a hint of the foothills and countryside.

The 50, 70 and 100-mile routes will head west towards Horsetooth Reservoir and experience the steep climb up to the top which will all be worth it when you get to the picturesque view along the water!

The 70 and 100-miles will continue NW and have to complete around 2,000-3,000 feet in elevation gain; experiencing the Rocky Mountains in a way you will never forget!

Learn more about routes here.



11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Packet Pickup at New Belgium Brewery. Pick up your packet and then you and a guest are invited to a private tour of the Brewery. Tours will leave at the top of each hour!

4 – 7 p.m. VIP Dinner at Ginger and Baker. This exclusive first-class event is for those that have raised $1,000+ and want the chance to meet the CEO and Chief Medical Officer of the Alzheimer’s Association to talk about the current and future Alzheimer’s Research Projects we will fund together. It will feel red carpet, but leave the black ties and dresses at home and come casual to eat (and drink) award-winning culinary amazingness!


6 – 7 a.m. Check In at Canvas Stadium on the CSU Campus


10 a.m. – ? Ride Post Party at the New Belgium Porch at Canvas Stadium. Most riders are encouraged to cross the finish line by 2 p.m., but we will stay until the last rider crosses the finish line!

  • 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 or 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!
