Denver B-Cycle Partners With Denver Century Ride
Denver B-cycle today announced a two-year partnership with Coldwell Banker Denver Century Ride, taking place this year on Saturday, June 17 along four courses that each feature excellent bike routes around the Denver metro area. All four of the route options—100 miles, 85 miles, 50 miles and 25 miles—begin and end at The Shops at Northfield Stapleton (8340 Northfield Blvd.), are fully supported, and allow cyclists to discover Denver by bike as they wind through the city.
“The Denver Century Ride showcases how much progress Denver is making as an urban bike city,” said Denver B-cycle executive director Nick Bohnenkamp. “The routes feature some of our best infrastructure and how to get around. The Century Ride also benefits bicycle organizations that are playing a key role in the ongoing improvements to the region’s bicycle infrastructure—and culture—we appreciate their vision and commitment.”
The Denver Century Ride benefits Bicycle Colorado, BikeDenver and Bike Jeffco. All three non-profit organizations advocate for the cycling community through a variety of means. In 2018, Denver B-cycle will be a non-profit partner and benefactor of the 25-mile ride option.
The 100-mile route is designed to help cyclists discover how easy it is to get out to the mountains by bike with the Downtown Denver skyline in full view and relish in the proximity of city and country. The full 100-mile route highlights some of Denver’s bicycle commuter routes and casual riding areas including a challenging climb from Golden through Genesee Park.
