The Experience

The ride itself might only take you a few hours on Sunday, but we've made this a turn-key weekend getaway for you, even if you are local. Stay in one of the historic hotels downtown on Friday and/or Saturday night, join us at New Belgium Brewery for a private tour when you get your packet, eat lunch from one of the famous food-trucks and then bring a friend or date to the VIP dinner on Saturday night with some shopping or exploring in between!

Whether you live out-of-state, plan to drive up from Denver, or even if you call Fort Collins home, let us plan a weekend getaway that will be memorable for both you and your date.


Check out the Colorado Ride Guide to get a full overview of the details for the ride including day of event schedule, Ride with GPS files, route and site venue maps.


Saturday, June 11th

  • 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. – Packet Pickup at New Belgium Brewery.
    Pick up your packet and then you and a guest are invited to enjoy a beverage while relaxing or shopping. If you pick up your packet on Saturday, you can just roll up to the starting line on Sunday (you can also pick up your packet on Sunday morning).
  • 4 – 8 p.m. – Champions Dinner at Ginger and Baker.
    This exclusive first- class event is for those that have raised $1,000+ and want the chance to talk about the current and future Alzheimer's Research Projects we will fund together. It will feel red carpet, but leave the black ties and dresses at home and come casual to listen to live music, eat (and drink) award- winning culinary amazingness!
