Most common Group Cycling Rides

  • Gateway Park Find on map

    Very fast and at times dangerous and often lawless group ride that usually attracts the top names of the area if not from the country. This ride starts at 10AM and begins around the first of the year. It usually goes until late spring. The route heads north to Carter Lake. The ride can have up to 50+ riders and at times are subject to traffic tickets.

    Fun, Wednesday early morning (6:30am) ride which always heads north to Jamestown or Hygenie or somewhere in between. The ride is usually mild but near the end or entry to Jamestown for some the pace really picks up. Ride returns to Amante where a sponsors purchases coffee and pastries for all the riders.

  • Wednesday Worlds ride Cyclocross only and fall only ride which meets at 7am at Amante in North Boulder and usually heads to the Elks lodge for 1 hr of intense cyclocross training.

News Item: 


Stapleton Denver Cycleton Ride

Ride leaves at either 7am or 8am depending on the season. Check our Team Cycleton facebook page for ride time updates

45 mile loop leaving from Cycleton Denver around the front range airport. Drop ride, high pace at the front. A,B and C groups form later in the spring and summer. 40-60 person average group in the summer so most cyclists can find someone to ride with.

The ride is great and there

The ride is great and there are enough riders around to make it a decent group ride. Do you suppose you would get even more riders if you set it to start at a more reasonable time (like 9 or 10am)? Also, why not have a weekday evening ride on the same route?

Not really. It's still base

Not really. It's still base season and most guys ride alone or in small groups at an easy pace. Team rides happen but they're still at a slow pace.

However, I think the gateway ride starts in a week or two. This ride will attract large groups of elite and masters racers. The pace will become lung searing come February and March. It leaves from the gateway mini golf park on hgwy 36 in north Boulder at 10am on Saturdays and or Sundays depending on weather. It's about 65 miles with some fast climbing up to Carter Lake. The ride usually re-groups at the lake and then goes full gas to Hygiene. The pace slows some heading back to Boulder.
