The Experience

The time you spend on the bike is special and meaningful - but it's only part of the story at #Ride2EndALZ Colorado. We've got a bunch of great things planned for you. This town has a little bit of magic dust sprinkled on it, and we hope you'll make a weekend out of it to experience it for yourself.

Stay in one of the historic hotels in downtown on Friday and/or Saturday night and then join us for packet pick-up on Saturday. Then later that day, all riders raising $1,000 or more are invited to the Champions dinner at Ginger & Baker. You'll be treated to delicious food and drinks, have the chance to meet other riders, and connect to the mission through inspirational stories and guest speakers.

Whether you live out-of-state, plan to drive up from Denver, or even if you call Fort Collins home, come experience all that the #Ride2EndALZ has to offer!

  • EARLY BIRD registration: $25 (January 4th - February 28)
  • SPRING registration: $50 (March 1 - May 31)
  • LATE registration: $75 (June 1 - June 11)

    Saturday, June 10th

    • Packet Pickup: Location & time TBA
      Pick up your purple swag that you earned through fundraising! 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).
    • Champions Dinner: Ginger and Baker from 4p-8p.
      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!
