The Subaru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival began with the cycling boom in 1987. Our objective was–and remains–to offer both recreational and competitive cyclists the opportunity to participate in a challenging and meticulously supported organized ride. The first year introduced over 1,200 cycling enthusiasts to the spectacular mountain views of Colorado’s Front Range. Each year the number of riders grew as word spread of the gorgeous courses and the gracious hosts. The event’s steady growth continued with the introduction of the mountain bike ride in 1991. That same year and every year since, the Subaru Elephant Rock has a attracted more cyclists than any other cycling event in the Rocky Mountain region. The 2016 Subaru Elephant Rock cycling festival had just reached 6,500 riders.
