Bikes, bands and beer

From 11-13 August, Denver’s River North (RiNo) Art District will host the first-ever Colorado Classic professional cycling race and Velorama Festival. This is a three-day block party highlighting the Colorado Classic finish line, national music acts and a craft marketplace. The events will appeal to a broad audience.


‘Velorama Colorado aims to celebrate many of the things that make Colorado special,’ says David Koff, CEO of RPM Events Group. ‘By combining an outdoor sporting event and a block party that includes already popular events like Denver Flea and local vendors, cycling fans can explore a music festival at their bike race, and music fans can experience a professional bike race alongside their music festival. Either way, Velorama promises to be a weekend filled with world-class cycling, broadly appealing music and more.’ The Colorado Classic will be a four-day series of races that will bring together top international men and women cyclists – including Tour de France runner-up, Rigoberto Uran and Colorado’s own three-time Olympian, Taylor Phinney.
