RIDE THE ROCK, ROCK THE RIDE
Elephant Rock is a true Colorado cycling classic, dating back more than 30 years. This legend has endured for good reason — the excellent riding is matched by the festival atmosphere (think 7,000 riders loving life) and the professional support out on course.
This year we have three road courses (40, 58 and 100 miles), two gravel routes (27 and 60 miles) and one great family ride (8 miles). It all goes down June 2 in Castle Rock, Colorado, with all rides starting and finishing at Douglas County Fairgrounds.
And the rides are only half the party! The Colorado Bike Expo on June 1-2 will feature scores of cool exhibitors, demos, live music, food and more.
New in 2019, a portion of the proceeds raised through our Elephant Rock registration and fundraising will go directly toward feeding hungry children in the Denver metro area. The CE Shop Foundation provides weekend meals to school children and their families on free and reduced school lunch programs. The Foundation has a goal of raising $50,000 this year from cyclist and supporters who join our fundraising team. Click here to learn more.
