Ride Your Bike. Change A Life. - Aspen Real Life

Ride Your Bike. Change A Life.

We are so excited to “Brake the Cycle” along with other cyclists, runners, and hikers, and help to lift individuals out of poverty in Zambia. We are also having a whole lot of fun on Strava with our Brake the Cycle community, as depicted well by Blake Appleby.

Professional cyclists and passionate advocates around the world have already begun to ride together to bring clean water, sanitation, and hygiene to people in Zambia over the Aspen Invitational cycling event. Join virtually on Strava and show your friends your commitment and enthusiasm for helping others, or join the physical signature 100K (62 mile) bike race through our beautiful mountains, including invigorating climbs and breathtaking views of the iconic Maroon Bells. With local Covid-19 restrictions, event details will be modified but you can expect an amazing ride with your favorite pro cyclists riding alongside. Not up for the full 100k? No problem, shorter options are available to fit all levels (even an ebike team!)

Registration includes an Aspen Invitational jersey, swag bag, post ride lunch, Saturday evening dinner, our new Strava virtual community, as well as the zoom call with the pros on Thursday, June 25th at 4:00pm MST. Register now as we will have a limited group size this year. Minimum donation or fundraising commitment of $750.

For additional details about the Aspen Invitational and links to register, visit www.brakethecycle.net. Register now and join the Zoom Kickoff Call with the pro cycling guests on Thursday, June 25th at 4:00 pm MST to hear their stories on why giving back is important to them, and to join in on the training. Pros include but are not limited to; Ruth Winder, who started 2020 with a stage win and overall victory in the Santos Tour Down Under, and Katie Compton, who has won the USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships Elite Women’s title in an unbroken 15-win streak every season from 2004 to 2019.

This is such a cool non-profit that incorporates some of the things I am most passionate about! Brake the cycle aims to raise money to provide clean water and bicycles to communities in Zambia.

While the charity ride might look a little different this year, it opens up an opportunity to be engaged from afar. I invite you to join the Strava group and learn a bit more about it!
