Flatirons Subaru is hosting our September  22nd fully supported group ride, departing at 9am. 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 the September event will benefit Second Wind Fund, a Denver-based organization.

    Second Wind Fund believes that every child and youth at risk of suicide should have access to the mental health treatment they need.

    We match children and youth at risk for suicide with licensed therapists in their communities. If a financial or social barrier to treatment is present, we pay for up to 12 sessions of therapy from one of our specialized network providers. Our unique program helps referred youth discover hope and healing in their lives.

    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

    Supertraining's unique model promotes benevolence in sport by pairing a fully supported monthly training ride with a Charity Organization. Riders are asked to make a modest $20 contribution for a day of comprehensive support before, during and after the ride. 100% of $ raised benefits the elected Charity to fulfill the Supertraining model - philanthropy in sport at the grassroots level. Your contribution 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 the community together by bike, once a month where we can spread awareness of and contribute to real-world issues.

    Depart From Flatirons Subaru

    Departure at 9am from Flatirons Subaru - arrive at 8:30am for coffee and Vafels.

    Ride Details

    Nutrition support by Flatirons Subaru - reach into the hatch of a new Subaru at designated stops for food and drink to fuel the ride.

    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.

    The B ride leaves at 9am, 5 minutes before the A ride to better coordinate the first rest stop. Beyond the first rest stop, the follow vehicle will continue with the A level ride as they need support for a up to 3 more hours. Not to worry, all participants will enjoy food at the start, no matter what your ride, as well as beverages and pizza at the finish!

    B ROUTE: Carter Lake Turnaround

    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

    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.
