Join us Sunday, June 11 for the Ridge at 38 Criterium and Brewfest! It’s a great event – pro & amateur racing plus a festive atmosphere for fans – all right in the heart of Wheat Ridge.

A criterium is a short course bicycle race on city streets. Cyclists participating in the races will be doing quick laps of this circuit as many times as possible in the time limit. This ensures a lot of action and excitement for the spectators and athletes.

Back this year is a Brewfest featuring some of the best local breweries.  In addition to racing and beer, the event features free festivities for spectators, including a family-friendly festival with food, live music, vendors, lively commentators announcing the action, and a kids’ zone featuring a bouncy castle and face painting!
