Route Description & Highlights:
This city-centric ride starts and stops at Northfield Stapleton, weaves through old-elegant Denver along tree-lined streets and drops into downtown by way of Coors Field, Union Station and Confluence Park. Cyclists head as far west as Sloan’s Lake before turning south rolling past Ruby Hill Park down to Cherry Hills Village to just north of Belleview St. Bible Park, Cook Park and Crestmoor Park are among some highlights of the cruise back north to Post Ride Street Party.
