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.
Bike MS: Colorado presented locally by Anthem is a two-day ride that will take you farther than you’ve ever gone before. What makes this ride so special? Riders will travel through quaint towns and backroads where they will enjoy rolling terrain or tackle the mountain climbs surrounding Horsetooth Reservoir before ending at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. 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.
Start/Finish Location: Front Range Community College Westminster
Fundraising Minimum: $400

Are you a Newbie Colorado Rider?
For the first time this year we have a CO Newbie Rider Coordinator, Colleen Murphy! Colleen will be helping all our first time or new riders train for the June Ride.
We’re taking our clinic series on the road! Join us at Performance Bicycle in Boulder for a roadside maintenance clinic followed by a scenic training ride.
The clinic will cover the more common road-side maintenance issues that riders will encounter: fixing a flat, making an adjustment to the derailleurs or brakes, and what to listen for that might indicate your bike needs more specific attention. The shop will have mechanics on site so you’ll get hands on learning!
Stick around after for a out-and-back 30-50 mile training ride on the 36 bike path – more info to come closer to the event.
Join us for a team clinic in our Tasting Room. This week we’ll have our sponsor Longmont Bicycle Company in house covering all things bike maintenance. Make sure you & your bike are ready to ride!
The ride to Carter Lake is a classic. We have 3 options for you. Go up the front side to the dam and turn around, go up the front side and ride to the North Marina, or do the Lollipop route (go up the front or go up the back but get to the Marina). For those that make it to the Marina, enjoy a few minutes on the deck of the store overlooking the lake.
