Back To Events


After evaluating the current situation surrounding COVID-19, coupled with our top priority of ensuring the well-being of our riders, staff, volunteers and partners, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s race.

We thank you in advance for your understanding.  Sunrise to Sunset Winter Park will ride again and we look forward to our best yet in August 2021! Learn more here


Back again in 2020, Winter Park Sunrise to Sunset capitalizes on two well-established strengths: the Sunrise to Sunset model and Winter Park’s deep mountain-bike roots. Luscious singletrack trails crisscross the mountains of Winter Park. How good are they, you ask? Good enough that USA Cycling is hosting the National Championships on the Winter Park trails in 2019.

Ideal for a 12-hour relay format, the section of trails used in Sunrise to Sunset are just above town, making access and relaxation between laps super easy. Winter Park Sunrise to Sunset will be held in conjunction with Crooked Gravel, so at day’s end riders of both persuasions will be partying together at the bandshell and surrounding park.

The 12-hour format is all about balancing camaraderie and challenge. Sure, some folks race it solo, but most choose to race in teams, from two-person up to five-person squads. As one teammate is out on course, banging out a 9.4-mile hot lap, the others are kicking back at camp, enjoying the festival atmosphere in the cool, high-mountain air.

While some events cater specifically to beginners or experts, Sunrise to Sunset offers fun for all; the level of challenge is self selected by how fast you go!

The Latest News

  • 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!
