Buffalo Bicycle Classic

The Buffalo Bicycle Classic dates back to 2003, having raised over 3.9 million dollars in support of student scholarships at CU Boulder. The students served by the BBC are some of Colorado’s brightest; each entering CU with over a 4.0 high school GPA. Our student scholars also demonstrate strong financial need, which makes this scholarship particularly important. Our $10,000 scholarship to these promising students makes higher education attainable. Through the generous support of our sponsors, volunteers and riders, we are able to make a difference in the lives of over 400 students in the last fourteen years.

The success of the BBC is in part due to lessons learned from the Bolder Bike Classic, a ride of the late 1990’s developed by Cliff Bosley under the Bolder Boulder umbrella of events. The event has grown over the years, not only in the dollars raised, or scholarships awarded, but also in the course itself. The BBC now offers 7 cycling courses, varying in difficulty as well as two running races: The Buffalo Run 5K and 10K. No matter your age, experience, or physical ability, we have a route for you! Enjoy the beautiful vistas Boulder has to offer, stop by one of our delicious aid stations, or climb Boulder Canyon in confidence thanks to the westbound lane closure. Whatever way you look at it, the Buffalo Bicycle Classic is a great event for a great cause
