The Wacky Bike Ride

The 4th annual Wacky Bike Ride is a one-day cycling event to encourage fitness, fun, and fundraising. With four rides to choose from, and money from each registration benefiting Douglas County Schools, the Wacky Bike Ride is a no-brainer way to spend a Sunday in Colorado! Riders enjoy a spacious staging area at Rocky Heights Middle School, stocked aid stations, excellent post-ride food, an amazing expo, and fun-filled goodie bags.

Riders have the option of four courses:

  • 6 mile - perfect for kids of all ages or anyone looking for a fun ride on the trail systems.
  • 45 mile - offers some climbing, flats and beautiful terrain taking riders through the major cities of Douglas County.
  • 62 mile - same as the 45, but with beautiful scenery rolling out and back along Highway 105 to reach a metric century.
  • 100 mile - same as the 62, but with MORE beautiful scenery including Tomah Road and Palmer Lake.

How the Wacky benefits Douglas County Schools:

It's very simple and there is no fundraising! When you sign up for the Wacky, a set amount from your registration automatically goes to supplying brand new school supplies for students in Douglas County through the Kits for Kidz program. The set amount is $10 for the 45, 62, and 100 mile distances and $5 for every 6 mile registration. Want to give more? No problem! You can give an additional donation during registration. Every $20.14 provides a full school supply kit for a child in any grade in Douglas County Schools. That's pretty awesome. Kits are distributed by the Douglas County Educational Foundation (DCEF).

Registration is open!

Every 6 mile rider gets their choice of Wacky 2014 socks, red beanie, black visor or black race cap. All other riders receive the 2014 Wacky jersey as a part of their registration. Be sure to check out the matching shorts and bibs to complete your kit (available for purchase during registration).
