Stonewall Century Ride

Scenic –  Challenging – Delicious!

Save the date for Stonewall Century Ride 2020. Details from the 2019 ride are below.

 

Join us in La Veta, Colorado for the 17th annual 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 and massage tables await you.

You’ll start in La Veta at 7,013 ft elevation, climb to the top of Cucharas Pass (9,945 ft), descend to 8,400 ft then climb to the second feed station at North Lake (8,600 ft). The route descends to the beautiful town of Stonewall and on to the lunch stop in Segundo, where the route reverses and returns, climbing along Highway 12. You’ll encounter the back side of Cucharas Pass, which some have called the “Soul Crusher” at 83 miles into the 102-mile ride.

  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
  • Volunteer with us for a few hours at @veloswap on Saturday, November 2 and help us make our 10,000 member movement even stronger! Click the link in our bio to sign up for your shift. 
Let’s bring more members to the movement and further strengthen our voice. Our goal is 200 new members in one BIG day. See you there! #bicyclecolorado
  • Today is #InternationalBossDay, so the #BicycleColorado team all decided to dress up as Pete—and take pictures sitting at his desk! Enjoy!
