As mountain biking season nears, we are getting excited to get back on the trails together. As we prepare for the 2022 season, we wanted to reflect back on our amazing 2021 season of community rides in the Eagle River Valley, Roaring Fork Valley and Denver Metro! Stay tuned for updates on our 2022 Community Rides!
“This season in the Roaring Fork Valley was the best yet. It became a recurring theme through the summer, our community looked forward to every Monday night and the community ride “was the best way to start the week.” We had incredible participation this summer with an average of 10 riders each week. We explored all the amazing mountain biking trails throughout the Roaring Fork Valley, from fun and flowy in South Canyon in Glenwood Springs to our classic single-track trails like Tom Blake in Snowmass Village. We even did our first ride in Hunter Creek in Aspen. Our last ride of this season featured stunning views of Mt. Sopris framed by spectacular fall colors. I am humbled by all the support from our community to Sacred Cycle’s mission. Our community rides are about creating a safe place for everyone to ride, connect, grow and empower. The impact you have is immense. By riding with our community, you are a part of healing for survivors, family, friends and our entire community. Your presence, empathy and support of each other during every ride is truly inspiring. Bikes do heal, especially when you ride together and have fun! Closing out this season brings a flood of immense gratitude for the opportunity to share the trails with our amazing community every Monday. Thank you to everyone that has joined us this season! A special thank you to all the superstar volunteer guides!”

“2021 was the inaugural season for Sacred Cycle holding community rides in Denver! We were lucky to average around 8 riders, with several new riders each week and a handful of dedicated repeat riders. We were especially thankful that a local gym, Colorado Fitness & Strength, participated in many of the rides and ultimately raised funds to support Sacred Cycle! Our final ride, one of our biggest, ended with stunning views of Denver from South Table Mountain at sunset, followed by the group sharing food and drinks afterwards at New Terrain. Thank you so much to all of the guides that helped make these rides happen, and to all of the riders that shared their energy and smiles as they honed new skills and grew more comfortable each week.”
