Event Details

 

IF YOU REGISTERED AFTER MAY 30, YOUR PACKET WILL BE AVAILABLE ONSITE BEGINNING AT 5:30AM AT THE START LINE.

 

The Denver Century Ride is the only ride of its kind in the Denver Metro Area offering five courses to choose from that accommodate all skill levels!

 

Please note the Denver Century Ride does not offer refunds for any reason, the ride will take place rain or shine.


 

This course starts and finishes on Main Street at the Shops at Northfield Stapleton and explores the northwest section of the metro area. The Century Ride (approximately 100 miles) initially heads west on the designated bike lane along Martin Luther King Blvd. through the Park Hill and Whittier neighborhoods before heading into Downtown Denver, and the historic Highlands neighborhood before moving on to the spacious views from Arvada, Lakewood and Golden.

After fueling up at the base of Lookout Mountain, the route follows the south side of the climb with hairpin turns reminiscent of the famous European climbs of the Tour de France. New in 2013, the descent is on the same side of the mountain then meanders through the back roads of Golden into Arvada.

Heading towards Boulder County there is an opportunity to ride on the newly widened roads of State Highway 93. This fast-paced wide open road, offers the best of Colorado’s contrasting vistas with grassy plains on one side and snowcapped peaks on the other.

Leaving Boulder, the course turns east to follow the designated bike lane along Baseline Ave. through the rolling hills of east Boulder County. The final leg of this course includes Riverdale Road, a course that hides the suburban sprawl into what seems to be a rural setting followed by a straight shot on to the many festivities taking at the Post Ride Street Party at the Shops at Northfield Stapleton.
Registration includes a meal at the Post Ride Street Party and sponsor sample bag on ride day.


Is this course for you?

This is the most challenging of all of the DCR courses as it has the distance and a significant climb. We do recommend that this is not be your first ride of the season but rather you have logged some miles on your bicycle in preparation. Never done a century ride before? Don’t let that deter you! Think of the accomplishment you will feel by making the Denver Century Ride be your first century ride ever!

 Must be at least 14 years old or if younger than 14 years have proof of completing a 100 mile ride prior to June 15th.

 

 

 

 

The Century Bypass provides the opportunity for cyclists to bypass the Lookout Mountain climb or the miles through Boulder County. You can tailor your Denver Century Ride to what suits you the best: mileage on long open roads or climbing like a mountain goat. This is also a great option for you if you want to participate but are short on time.

 

The course follows the start of the Century Ride through Golden. After fueling up at the base of Lookout Mountain, the route follows the south side of the climb with hairpin turns reminiscent of the famous European climbs of the Tour de France. New in 2013, the descent is on the same side of the mountain then meanders through the back roads of pastoral Golden into Arvada.

Heading towards Boulder County there is an opportunity to ride on the newly widened roads of State Highway 93, offering the best of Colorado’s contrasting vistas with grassy plains on one side and snowcapped peaks on the other.

Leaving Boulder, the course turns east to follow the designated bike lane along Baseline Ave. through the rolling hills of east Boulder County. The final leg of this course includes Riverdale Road, a course that hides the suburban sprawl into what seems to be a rural setting followed by a straight shot to the Post Ride Street Party at the Shops at Northfield Stapleton.

Registration includes a meal at the Post Ride Street Party and a sponsor sample bag on ride day.

 Is this course for you?

With less miles, this will not be as demanding as the Century Ride but we do recommend that this is not be your first ride of the season but rather you have logged some miles on your bicycle in preparation.

Must be at least 14 years old or if younger than 14 have proof of completely a 100 mile ride prior to June 15th.

 

 

 

 

The Metric Century (approximately 62.5 miles) is a great option for those looking for a long distance ride without the intensity of a hill climb. This fun route no longer includes the steep ascent up Lookout Mountain but allows cyclists to get their hearts pumping and enjoy some of the most scenic vistas in the north metro area.

The course also starts and finishes at the Shops at Northfield Stapleton and explores the northwest section of the metro area. Initially heading west, on the designated bike lane along Martin Luther King Blvd. past the Park Hill and Whittier neighborhoods into downtown Denver, this course continues through the Highlands neighborhood before moving on to Arvada, Lakewood and Golden. Circumventing the hill climb, the Metric Century course splits off and heads to Broomfield.

 Cyclists ride their way east towards the sweeping plains. They then turn south and follow the wide open road, offering the best of Colorado’s contrasting vistas with grassy plains on one side and snowcapped peaks on the other. The final leg of this course is a straight shot to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, on to the Post Ride Street Party Festivities on Main Street at the Shops at Northfield Stapleton.

Registration includes a meal at the Post Ride Street Party and a sponsor sample bag on ride day.

Is this course for you?

This is the perfect option if you want a great course but do not feel ready for a major climb or extra miles. It is also a great training ride as you prepare for other long distance rides this summer.

Must be at least 14 years old or if younger than 14, must have proof of completing a 62 mile course to ride.

 

The Quarter Century (approximately 25 miles) will head from the Shops at Northfield Stapleton towards Lowry on designated bike lanes heading towards the Cherry Creek Bike Trail. Once on the Cherry Creek Bike Trail, the course will cruise through some of the great neighborhoods of Denver including Virginia Vale, Cherry Creek leading to Downtown Denver. Following the Platte River, with views of the Highlands, cyclists will ride a pastoral course through some of the more industrial areas of Denver including Globeville and Rhino.

The last leg of the Quarter Century is a straight shot to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge and on to the Post Ride Street Party festivities on Main Street at the Shops at Northfield Stapleton.

 

 

This ride down Main Street gives the youngest cyclists the opportunity to decorate their bicycles, tricycles or balance bikes and show them off as they cruise through the Post Ride Street Party at the Shops at Northfield Stapleton.

 A perfect way to spend a Saturday with fun for the whole family!
