Best Road Cycling Events Colorado 2023/2024

Solo rider in the Rockies

Strambecco rates the Best Road Cycling Events in Colorado 2023/2024 based on various factors, including reputation, route quality, location, rider feedback, and the event’s or race’s overall uniqueness.  Colorado terrain features of Strambecco’s best list include tall peaks, long, high alpine climbs, canyons, basins and valleys, and forested regions.  You can expect lots of elevation gain and events at high base elevations in all the Rocky Mountain events.  Pay special attention to those events at or above 7,000 feet of elevation, which warrant more specialized training at altitude and/or acclimation time.  You can also expect less predictable weather conditions in mountain events, including wind, thunderstorms, and large temperature variations during the day.

If we had to pick the best of the best road cycling events Colorado 2023/2024, or those you might classify as bucket list events, we’d recommend the Triple Bypass Gran Fondo and the Mt. Evans Hill Climb, two of the longest-running and iconic events in America, let alone Colorado.  We’d also call out Elephant Rock. We also find a strong correlation between the best events and professional event producers.  In Colorado, premiere event producers include Outside Events, Team Evergreen Cycling, and the Gran Fondo National Series.

Strambecco does not list every event.  We strive to identify and review events that are special and noteworthy.  If you have suggestions on other events we should consider or review, please get in touch with us here or send us a note at  Strambecco also rates the Best Gravel Cycling Events in Colorado and the Best Mountain Biking Events in Colorado.
