Is this route for you?
This is the most challenging of all of the Denver Century Ride routes as it has the distance and a significant climb. If you are going to do this route, 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!
