KUSA - If you love riding your bike, are you ready for a moon light ride in downtown Denver?
The Innovage Moonlight Classic is Saturday, July 19, 2014, from 8:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. The ride is limited to 4,500 cyclists. Be sure to register early to secure your spot!
The Ride - The 10-mile, non-competitive ride begins and ends at the Colorado State Capitol, taking cyclists through Denver's historic neighborhoods, including the business district, Lower Downtown, Congress Park and the Cherry Creek shopping district! With the support of the City of Denver and the Denver Police Department, the course is closed to automobile traffic allowing participants to ride safely on city streets (portions of the course will have a lane closure only as required by the City of Denver). The final wave of riders begins at 11:30 p.m. . The last cyclist to ride this wave is at 11:45 p.m.
In the InnovAge Moonlight Classic tradition, cyclists are encouraged to dress up as wildly as they like. The Costume Contest begins at 9:30 p.m.
Family and Youth Wave starts approximately 10:30 p.m.
Cyclists with child (or pet) trailers and cyclists 17 and under will enjoy the first start wave! This wave boasts a slower, less populated course that reduces hazards to you and to other riders, including slow-moving cyclists and trailers.
Casual Cruiser Wave starts approximately 11 p.m.
This is the perfect start wave for adult cyclists who prefer to take a more leisurely ride through the streets of Denver. The Casual Cruiser Wave is ideal for the adult rider who is less experienced riding on urban streets, but enjoys a late night cruise now and then.
Gonzo Wave starts approximately 11:30 p.m.
If you are fast, experienced and born to ride, this is your wave! The Gonzo Wave gives riders a true late-night experience, often bringing out outrageous costumes and intense cyclists. Take a bicycle ride on the wild side, be warned: this isn't your grandma's start wave!
