Proposed 2023 Options

*Routes pending permit approval

Venus de Miles offers three course options to accommodate nearly all riders’ ability levels and preferences. Each course travels through the beautiful rural roads of Boulder and Larimer counties, and passes through multiple rest stops where riders are treated to great snacks, hydration, and entertainment! Large portions of the courses overlap with one another to emphasize community and encouragement between riders.

100-mile route: Our beautiful and challenging 100-mile route climbs through stunning Big Thompson Canyon, continues through Estes Park, and rolls back down the Peak to Peak back to Bohn Park. This is our most challenging and rewarding ride!

66-mile route: The 66-mile route heads up to historic Masonville, and also incorporates a beautiful hill climb up to Carter Lake.

33-mile route: The 30-mile course meanders through the rural roads of Berthoud before heading back down to Bohn Park.

Mission: Nonprofit Partners & Beneficiaries


Venus de Miles encourages all riders to fundraise for Greenhouse Scholars, an education nonprofit that is cultivating extraordinary leaders to change low-income families and communities. These students have overcome unimaginable challenges in their young lives such as homelessness, violence, loss, and more. Greenhouse Scholars provides support through four years of college and beyond. Resources include one-on-one mentoring, an extensive professional network, internships, peer support, and grants for additional opportunities such as research, service projects, study abroad programs, and more.

  • 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!
