Join your neighbors at one of four Ride the Drive events. This year's Ride the Drive will look a little different than the typical downtown event. As a COVID safety precaution, we’ve made several significant adjustments. To help disperse participation and to better control crowds, this year’s Ride the Drive will offer four simultaneous neighborhood events with limited park activities. Parks and routes were selected through a thoughtful and careful planning process, working with the City’s Traffic Engineering Division. As in previous years, the focal point remains a park with a surrounding route closed to motor vehicles, allowing RTD participants to stroll, roll, pedal or glide along the roughly 2-mile route. As always, Ride the Drive is free to attend.

Due to the added locations, we need volunteers more than ever before. Volunteer positions include setup and cleanup crews, bike ambassadors, info station/t-shirt sales, and intersection guides. Do you live along or near the route, consider registering and recruiting your friends and family.
