What happens in Denver

Setting out from the famous Triangle Building in downtown Denver, our intrepid riders power out of the city centre past the beautiful 19th century buildings and into the wilderness beyond. Heading north on the South Platte River Trail, the cyclists turn west on the Clear Creek Bike Trail.  Leaving behind the Mile High City, at the 15 mile point our 30-mile riders turn back for the home straight and a photo finish at the Triangle Building.

The 60-mile riders continue west to Golden's Lookout Mountain, enjoying a very gratifying lunch at the summit. They will then head south to Morrison, riding past the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, before turning east on the Bear Creek Trail. Our team of riders finish strong by heading north on the South Platte Trail and crossing the line at the Triangle Building, for a big finish and a few beers to celebrate!

This year, vehicle support will be available for any riders who would like to complete the 60 mi ride but who prefer to bypass cycling up Lookout Mountain. Enjoy the entire ride with your colleagues, including lunch at the summit of Lookout Mountain by requesting vehicle support when you sign up for the ride!

 

5Km run/walk

New this year, Denver colleagues who choose not to cycle will have the option of participating in a 5km run or walk, followed by a scenic picnic at Sloan’s Lake. Hop in a carpool and head out to the lake just before lunch, enjoy the scenic Denver skyline and the peaceful escape from the bustling city as you run or walk around the Sloan’s Lake path. Lunch will be waiting for you in the picnic area to enjoy before heading back to the office.

Banada Challenge

The Denver challenge is named after Banada School in Uganda. Lessons for Life supports students at Banada school through our partner ACCOD by providing scholastic materials, school support and the provision of teachers lunches.
