Ride | June 23rd


Flatirons Subaru is hosting our June 23rd fully supported group ride, departing at 10:00am. You're asked to contribute a donation of $20. Details below!

    Project Supertraining promotes a unique monthly ride out of Boulder, CO - the only one in the country that offers the challenge of a Gran Fondo with support from local businesses by suggested donation to different non-profit organizations all year round.

    Proceeds from our April event will benefit Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence

    "SPAN is a human rights organization committed to ending violence against adults, youth and children through advocacy, support, education and community organizing. We have provided healing, hope and opportunity to domestic violence survivors and their children since 1979.

    Every year, more than 10,000 people turn to SPAN for help, support, resources and information. This includes 8,000_ callers each year to our 24/7 Crisis & Information Hotline and more than 2,000 people who receive direct, in-person service.

    • 90% of SPAN's clients report annual incomes below $20,000.
    • 35% of Shelter residents report having. physical disability, usually the result of the abuse they have endured.
    • The number of older adults seeking shelter, counseling and other SPAN services has more than quadrupled int he last five years.

    Women and children are among the fastest growing population of the homeless in the Front Range, and domestic violences is the #1 reason for their homelessness. SPAN is a critical resource so women in Boulder County never have to choose between remaining with an abuser or becoming homeless."

    We're offering ride options to accommodate different rider levels. Expect a group ride atmosphere following proper road etiquette. Please yield to the designated ride leaders for instructions on the road for the safety of all riders.

    How it works

    Ride participation is by donation. There is no entry fee. We have a mandatory donation of $20 where donations can be made online or on-site before and after the ride.

    We designed a community-level event where we can ride for a cause without exorbitant entry fees. With nutrition and follow-vehicle support by Flatirons Subaru, we're able to get a community together by bike, once a month where we can spread awareness of and contribute to real-world problems.

    A Ride

    Expect an elite level training ride on a challenging 4hr+ route to include iconic climbs in the Boulder area. This ride is for the fittest riders looking for a steady effort for multiple hours - a true day of Supertraining. KOM/QOM will be announced at the beginning of the ride. You'll have plenty of water and food at rest stops along the way. This is where you'll run into professional level riders in the area between their busy schedules: Peter Stetina, Timmy Duggan, Mike Friedman, Toms Skujins, Alex Howes, Taylor Phinney, Nicolle Bruderer, Neil Bezdek, Adam Farabaugh, Janel Holcomb and Emma Grant are a few of our recent guests.

     

    B Ride - TBD

    Expect a less intimidating ~3hr ride that splits off from the A route. We welcome weekend warriors and enthusiasts alike to join in a non-competitive, conversational ride exploring paved and gravel roads in the area.

    C Ride
    The C Riders should all plan to enjoy coffee and wafels before as well as refreshments after the ride. Those choosing to ride outside of the A and B group should plan to be self-supported without a follow vehicle. All are welcome to roll out with the B Route and cut their ride short if desired. Because there is only one support car, the vehicle can only accommodate a limited number of ride speeds and will stay predominately with the A Ride.
