Aid stations will be stocked with water, Nuun (hydration mix), fruit, bagels, sandwiches, and nutrition products all served according to updated health guidelines. Please note: not all items are available at all aid stations. Portable toilets and hand washing stations will be available. Hand sanitizer will be provided on or near the service tables. Please use frequently.
Riders must wear bib numbers (supplied with registration) to obtain food and access to certain areas of the route. Medical support will be available at all aid stations; however, medical personnel will not be dispensing comfort medications such as: aspirin, ibuprofen, Tylenol. Participants are asked to bring their own comfort medications as needed.

2021 Aid Station Locations/Mile Markers – Coming Soon!
There will be Bike Mechanics at all Aid Stations. Please note: There will not be a bike mechanic at the Water Stops. We are very thankful for the great support from the following bike shops:
Campus Cycles, REI, Pedal Pushers, Pedal, & Velofix
PLEASE NOTE: The bike shops and mechanics are on site to help with basic repairs and supplies that are $10 or less. The goal is to keep you on the ride and safe. Should your bicycle need more expensive supplies please be prepared to compensate the mechanics for the supplies, including tires but not tubes. We encourage you to make sure your bicycle is in good working order before heading out on the Denver Century Ride.
Please carry a tube for your tire with you. If you need a tire change refresher, contact one of our partner bike shops, they will be happy to teach you.
SAG wagons will rove each of the courses with water and road assistance to help riders experiencing mechanical trouble or those who become too fatigued to finish. Please be prepared to handle your own flats and minor repairs. SAGs will only provide assistance to the nearest aid station where you may wait for another SAG moving forward, or phone a friend or relative to pick you up. Due to social distancing we will limit the capacity of all SAG vehicles.
If you need route support:
- Flag down one of the SAG (Support and Gear Wagons) They are identified with signs on their cars that say “DCR Support” – If you are stopped at the side of the road and do not need help but see a support vehicle, please give them a thumbs up so they can continue on to help others on the route
- Call the dispatch number listed in the final rider instructions provided via email, on Facebook and on the website the week before the ride.
- Stay where you are – if you move we will have a hard time finding you.
