Single Day Colorado Bike Tour

Second Annual WRC Livestrong Ride

The inaugural WRC Livestrong Ride, benefiting the Lance Armstrong Foundation (Livestrong), was one of biggest bike shop ride fundraisers in the U.S. in 2010. Riders and friends of WRC helped put together a donation of over $10,000 for research to eradicate cancer!

This year we're doing it again and we welcome you to join us. The ride leaves the shop under escort of Wheat Ridge and Lakewood Police Departments. Escort continues to base of Dinosaur Ridge.

Once over the ridge, there will be a fully stocked aid station in the lower north parking lot at Red Rocks. At that point, riders are welcome to demo new 2011 bikes from our vendors, or to simply return to WRC. Lunch will be served post-ride at WRC.

When: Saturday May 14, 2011. Ride leaves WRC at 8:00 a.m.

Where: WRC to Red Rocks and back. See map below. WRC is also hosting our annual Demo Day that morning at Red Rocks.

Cost: $75, with ALL proceeds going to the Lance Armstrong Foundation (Livestrong)
