Don't Miss the 25th Annual Starlight Spectacular!

One of the best things about living in Colorado Springs is that there are always super awesome community events going on. While some of these events take place to celebrate traditions honored across the nation, our local area has a lot of really cool events that originated here and have been celebrated for years! One of those upcoming events is the 25th Annual Starlight Spectacular! Check out the details:

On a summer night in 1994, a small group of crazy cyclists decided it would be awesome to get up in the middle of the night, ride bikes by starlight and watch the sunrise together. That late night ride led to the birth of an annual tradition, the Starlight Spectacular; which is now one of the nation’s oldest and largest community bike rides.

25th Annual Starlight Spectacular Details
Come celebrate “25 years of wild style” June 15th at the Starlight Spectacular night time bike ride in Colorado Springs, beginning and ending at the world-famous Garden of the Gods Park. Join 1,000 other riders flying through the starlit streets for 16, 21 or 23 miles—now with a 4-mile early kid friendly ride through the park! Put on your favorite costume and light up your bike, it is going to be a spectacular night!

To celebrate the 25th anniversary, there will be some new additions and festivities:
  • Adding an amazing new “Garden Ride and Rest Stop at Hamp Hut.” The perfect ride for families and individuals looking for a shorter journey in Garden of the Gods Park.
  • DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND–Upgrading the ride shirt to a commemorative tech tee, sure to be a collector’s item.
  • Increasing the festivities at all of our existing rest stops, with more food options and amusing activities than ever before!
