Venus de Miles
Venus de Miles is a women’s bike ride that is put on by and fully benefits Greenhouse Scholars, an education nonprofit that cultivates extraordinary leaders to change low-income families and communities.
Each year, Venus de Miles brings more than a thousand women together for sisterhood, community, and a great time, all in support of Greenhouse Scholars. Venus de Miles Colorado returns for its 13th year on August 29, 2020. For the first time since its inception, Venus de Miles Colorado has moved locations, this time to take place in Lyons at Bohn Park. Our collective move to the town of Lyons offers access to some of Colorado’s most popular cycling routes with awe-inspiring views. The gorgeous and completely revamped Bohn Park runs along the beautiful riverbanks of the St. Vrain, offering riders access to a larger venue with amazing amenities. It also allows us to bring new perks and fun activities to our event that the whole family will enjoy. As always, Venus de Miles offers a variety of course options to accommodate any active woman, and an iconic finish line festival that treats participants to great food, free drinks, and pampering spa treatments—philanthropy has surely never felt so good!
Ride with us in the name of sisterhood and change.
Venus de Miles is for all skill levels and features courses to accommodate any active woman – whether this is your first athletic event or your hundredth. Choose among a rolling 33-mile course, a 64-mile metric century, and a 100-mile century course. All courses go through beautiful Boulder County.
Start and Finish Line Festival
The ride start and finish line festival will take place in Bohn Park located at 199 2nd Avenue, Lyons, CO 80540.
