TEAM COLORADO

Team Left Hand is a group of employees and friends dedicated to solving the riddle that is Multiple Sclerosis. Our Colorado team started in 2008 and has since grown to nearly 200 riders raising over $1.9 million in 10 years. We hope you’ll join us in our 11th year on the ride where it all started! You’ll enjoy a fully supported ride through rolling terrain or can tackle the mountain climbs surrounding Horsetooth Reservoir, all while helping Team Left Hand Colorado raise funds and awareness for the millions of people around the world that are fighting the disease today.

Additional Information:

Each day has multiple route options, all of which are fully supported with stocked rest stops every 10-12 miles and a great lunch stop.
