This event started in 2011 with one man's idea to ride from his home near Denver's City Park to his newly purchased townhome in Winter Park. The unorganized inaugural year involved only 8 riders and a good friend willing to follow with his wife's minivan. Actually, it was his minivan and we were glad that he owned one. Good times were had by all and we decided to continue the event and raise money for a great cause.
