This year, the Ridge at 38 Criterium bike race will once again act as the Colorado Criterium State Championships! This free event will be held on Sunday, September 12, 2021 from 10am to 7pm.

What’s a Criterium you ask?   A Criterium Bike Race- or a Crit – is a fast and furious day of bike racing with each heat having an many as 150 riders racing at speeds of up to 30 mph to complete the most laps on the closed one-mile length course here in the heart of Wheat Ridge.  Exciting for sure!  You can root for your favorites and shake a cowbell to support the racers.  Plus, there will be a beer garden, expo, and deals and specials at our local businesses located along the race course.

Come out enjoy bicycle racing at it’s finest!  Racing starts at 10:00am and continues through the day!
