DENVER, CO (BRAIN)—The 4th annual Rocky Mountain Bicycle Festival returns, but to a different venue in Denver, Colorado on June 11 and 12. Last year's event coincided with the Leadville Trail 100 MTB race in August.
The two-day festival, held at Invesco Field, will include brands such as Cinelli and Specialized; custom builders like Black Sheep Bikes and Dean; component and accessory makers; and non-profits, touring and service companies.
"Having cyclists from so many different disciplines and backgrounds in such a fun atmosphere made the Rocky Mountain Bicycle Festival one of the best festivals Cinelli attended in 2010. We’re looking forward to it being in Denver this year," said Ben Coffey, Cinelli Brand Manager at BTI.
The festival provides a chance for people to demo their dream bikes, take free seminars, and compete in GoldSprints contests, according to a press release. Boulder Indoor Cycling will provide free riding lessons for kids on their CycleTykes course. Other family activities include a kids’ bike parade, adult races on kids bikes and a bicycle-art station.
The 2011 RMBF will be held in tandem with the Denver Century Ride. “With three thousand riders taking part in two days of rides ranging from five to 100 miles, combined with the urban location that makes this an easy ride-to event, we expect the Rocky Mountain Bicycle Festival and Denver Century Ride will be one of the best cycling events in the region,” said festival director Carol Johnson.
