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.
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.
