Stonewall Century Ride

August 12, 2023


Join us in La Veta, Colorado for the 20th Anniversary Stonewall Century Bicycle Ride. You’ll be treated to scenic vistas, friendly volunteers, great feed stations, and steep hills. The route follows Highway 12, a Colorado Scenic Byway known as the “Highway of Legends”. The grade on this beast exceeds 10%. Have no fear, the steepest section lasts only one mile and the grade lessens toward the top. Then you’ll enjoy the 17-mile descent into La Veta, where a BBQ dinner awaits you.

Route Details


The route follows Colorado Highway 12, a designated Scenic By-way known as the Highway of Legends. Cyclists will start at 7,013 ft elevation. The road climbs to Cuchara village (8,500 ft), to the first feed station (~1.5 miles before the ski area), to the top of Cuchara Pass (9,945 ft). From there, cyclists will descend to 8,400 ft then climb to the second feed station at North Lake (8,600 ft). The route continues to descend to the beautiful town of Stonewall (third feed station) and on to the lunch SAG at Segundo, where the route reverses and returns along Highway 12. Much of the ride is steady, moderate climbing and descending, however the approaches to Cuchara Pass are steep and challenging. Click here for the Route and Profile map.

  • 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!
