Back for the 16th year, the Colorado-Eagle River Ride and Roadhouse Mountain Bike Ride presented by Roadhouse Hospitality Group is bigger than ever! No matter your skill level, there is an option for you. Plus, you won’t want to miss an opportunity to ride with Olympic gold medalist cyclist Tyler Hamilton, 3x Boston Marathon winner Uta Pippig, and XTERRA World Champion Josiah Middaugh!
Secure your VIP package to kick off the weekend right on Friday night, July 21st at the Dusty Boot in the heart of Beaver Creek Village from 6-8 PM for the second annual pre-ride River Ride Rendezvous VIP event. In addition to the meet and greet opportunity with the professional athletes, attendees will discover the Faces of SOS project, a gallery style exhibition of high quality images coupled with personal accounts of SOS participants. To round out the celebration, delectable appetizers and drinks will be provided at the Dusty Boot alongside a silent auction. This event is ticketed – select the ultimate VIP package (including access to the River Ride Rendezvous, this year’s jersey and registration in the ride of your choice) during checkout to join us!
On Saturday, July 22nd, grab your bikes and hit the mountain or the road for a journey through some of Colorado’s most scenic landscapes in these supported rides! The traditional River Ride component will continue to offer 100-mile, 68-mile, and 42-mile routes to suit every rider’s ability. Whatever option you choose, you will be rewarded with beautiful, scenic views of the Colorado and Eagle rivers. 100-milers and 68-milers will ride the famous River Road, a dirt-packed route following the banks of the Colorado River from Route 131 down to Dotsero. Aid stations fully stocked with food, beverages, repair kits and mechanics to keep every rider going. Not to mention, SAG (support and gear) drivers will offer vehicle support along the entire course.
Prefer mountain biking? Get ready to cycle for the kids on either the short or long course. Both routes start from the heart of Beaver Creek Village, with the short course completing a loop on Beaver Creek and traveling down, and long course traversing trails across Beaver Creek, Bachelor Gulch, and Arrowhead before making final descent down to Beaver Creek Landing. Ride solo, or put together your team for a memorable day of riding to provide opportunities for local youth! As an inclusive community event designed for all levels and abilities, there are designated aid stations, SAG, and mechanics on site to provide support throughout.
Tickets are now available at www.sosoutreach.org. Whether you choose to participate in the Roadhouse Mountain Bike Ride or the classic River Ride, all registered riders will be greeted at the Beaver Creek Landing for the festival finish after-party including food and drinks compliments of Dusty Boot and Odell Brewing and live music! Don’t forget – this event is open to the public, and all riders are encouraged to bring their friends and family to join in the celebration. So grab your friends and register today!
