Route Description & Highlights:
The 100 Mile Century route provides cyclists with a tour of some of Denver’s most iconic places. This route provides both distance and a climb. Cruise past Coors Field & Union Station before the steep climb to the peak of Lookout Mountain. We’ve planned a stop in Red Rocks Park and a closed road across the Cherry Creek Dam just for our riders. Cycle around old elegant Denver, up and down the foothills and along city streets and bike paths that connect this city. Here is a photo tour of a few things you may see on the route:

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 steep climb up Lookout Mountain. 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!
