—————————————————————-

Ride & Revel! recreational cycling event begins and ends in tree-shaded Lincoln Park in historic downtown Greeley, Colorado, where after the ride you’ll enjoy a prepared meal, beer crafted just for Ride & Revel!, and live music.

48 & 70 MILE GRAVEL RIDES ARE NOW AVAILABLE IN ADDITION TO 20, 40, & 55 MILE ROAD RIDES!

 

RECREATIONAL GRAVEL ROUTES

Cyclists on 48 and 70-mile gravel rides enjoy a short stint through downtown before emerging and pedaling west and then north and east into the gently rolling farm and ranchlands to the north of Greeley. They will ride the agricultural backroads of Weld County where there are more gravel and dirt roads to choose from than in any other Colorado county! The views are remarkable with the Rockies to the west, the plains to the east, and rural sights all around!

In the adventurous spirit and tradition of gravel riding, route support for the gravel rides is scaled back to only sag wagons and sweepers. THERE WILL BE NO MECHANICAL SUPPORT OR AID STATIONS AVAILABLE ON THE GRAVEL ROUTES. Please click here to see the routes, and see Event Details and Schedule below!

Once back to the Revel! area within Lincoln Park, cyclists will enjoy each other, a prepared meal, and beer locally crafted for Ride & Revel! (non-alcoholic beverages also available), all while sitting under shade trees and listening to live music. FUN! FUN! FUN!

RECREATIONAL ROAD ROUTES

Cyclists on 20, 40, and 55-mile rides enjoy a short stint through downtown before emerging and pedaling west into the gently rolling farm and ranchlands north of Greeley. The panoramic views are stunning on all three routes, with the Rocky Mountains an ever-present focal point.

All riders will arrive at the Poudre Learning Center (PLC) Aid Station near the ten mile mark, which is where 20 mile riders turn around and travel back the way they came to the Revel! event, which will be gearing up for its 10:30 AM start.

40 and 55-mile riders continue south, beginning to climb to even more stellar views at 12 miles. Mile 17 begins two miles of fun, roller-coaster hills which leave riders playing peekaboo with the Rockies looming straight ahead and seemingly within reach. At the 19 mile point the 40-milers turn north to keyhole loop and rejoin the route they came out on four miles later, then make one final uphill push and drop down to relatively level elevation for the remainder of the distance to the Revel! event where food, beer/beverages, shade, and live music await!

At that same 19 mile point the 55 mile riders turn south again, ride parallel with the Rockies, and climb up onto a ridge where the view to the distant horizon is often clear in all four directions at once. They will swear they could reach out and touch those Rockies in all their glory! From there the route takes cyclists through the quiet challenge of countryside hills, allowing them to catch their breath coasting down off the ridge before a big push up the infamous Mad Russian Hill. Near the top of Mad Russian Hill the loop will be complete, and riders will head back toward downtown Greeley. Once back to the Revel! area within Lincoln Park, cyclists will enjoy each other, a prepared meal, and beer crafted annually for Ride & Revel! (or non-alcoholic beverages), all while being entertained by live music. FUN! FUN! FUN!

Start times will be staggered

  • 7:00 AM –  70 Mile Gravel
  • 7:15 AM – 48 Mile Gravel
  • 7:30 AM – 55 mile Road

Before or after the ride, ENJOY beautiful Downtown Greeley. Truly in the heart of the City, Downtown Greeley is a thriving neighborhood that is a vibrant place to live, work and play!  Visit the wonderful shops, enjoy the great dining, and experience incredible entertainment including free live music just a block from the event site at Friday Fest the evening before the event!

If you are interested in helping the aging population in Weld County, get involved with Ride and RevelProceeds support 60+ Ride, enabling older adults throughout Weld County to maintain their health while living independently. The 2019 Ride & Revel! helped 60+ Ride (formerly Senior Resource Services) raise over $60,000!

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!
