How does the coronavirus outbreak affect the ride?
The safety of our cyclists, volunteers, partners and staff is the top priority. As the ride is still three months out and most restrictions presently run through mid-May, we fully expect the ride will take place as planned on Saturday, June 20, 2020.
As a bit of an “insurance policy,” or perhaps an “assurance policy,” we have determined a back-up date for later in the summer, which is Saturday, August 22nd, with all other elements remaining the same including our start/finish at the Shops at Northfield, as well as the courses. Again, this is just our contingency plan. We should all anticipate the ride to take place on June 20th as planned.
What if I’m injured and can’t ride but I already registered?
We are happy to transfer your registration to another cyclist but we cannot refund for any reasons.
My schedule changed and I can’t ride any longer.
We cannot refund your registration but we are happy to transfer it.
Are there cut-off times for each route?
Yes there are. In order to ensure you make it back to the post ride street party we enforce cut-off times. At every Aid Station there will be published closure times.
Are tandem bikes allowed on the course?
Yes, as long as you purchase 1 registration for each rider.
Are recumbent or handcycle bikes allowed on the course?
Yes, as long as you have a 6ft flag attached to your bike so you are seen easily.
Are E-bikes allowed on the course?
Yes, E-bikes are allowed on any of our five courses.
I registered for the 100 mile, can I switch to the 85 mile on Ride Day?
Absolutely! The route is designed so you can switch to a shorter or longer route as you like during the course of the ride. We do ask that you are aware of the start times for the different routes. For example, if you registered for the 50 mile but think you might actually do the 100 mile you should plan on starting in one of the 100 mile waves.
Can I register on-site? Yes! At the Denver Century Ride HQ – 8230 E. Northfield Blvd. from 4pm to 8pm on Thursday, June 18th and Friday, June 19th from 4pm-8pm. We also offer Day Of Ride Registration starting at 5am on June 20th at the Denver Century Ride HQ – 8230 E. Northfield Blvd.
