make this our most popular single day bike event. This ride at night open up a whole new experience in riding. Calming and yet a little scary at the same time. You will love it. Activity includes: Transportation, guide, support and snack lunch. Note: this is an

First, inspect and load bikes, drive up to the summit of Pikes Peak, unload, take in the view then enjoy a downhill ride of a lifetime. At
the end of the ride we will stop at Rudy’s BBQ restaurant before we head home. People’s appetites and food preference very too much for us to include the meal, so bring some money.

the center of the city. This ride
has something for everyone. We’ll start our ride in Greenland and ride south for 45 miles descending almost 2300 feet. A support van will meet you whenever it can so it can carry cold water and anything you do not want to carry on your bike or to just give you a little break (no shame, support drivers love
the company). Cost $25. Activity includes transportation to trail head, trip leader, van support, ice water, and shuttle back to USAFA after finish.
