Before the Fort Follies Grand Prix and before the USA Pro Challenge, you can ride with some of the best professional athletes in the world. Join the Fort Follies and members of the women's pro peloton for a easy 20 mile ride around Fort Collins on August 24th.  

Event starts at 8am. Enjoy a leisurely ride with some of the professional ladies! Will ride to Crankenstein's in Old Town for $1 coffee drinks (there will be ample bike parking). Highlighting ladies, but guys are welcome as well. All levels and ages welcome! Let's celebrate ladies of all levels on bikes.

This fast, flat .93 mile course is centered in the heart of the action in Old Town, Fort Collins on the same day as the USA Men’s Pro Challenge Stage 6, also ending in Fort Collins. With a major $9,000 prize purse, primes, sprinter points, and a most-aggressive rider jersey, you can expect incredible action among some of the highest-level women professionals in the U.S.! With that, due to sponsorship constraints due to the USA Pro Challenge, we are seeking additional sponsorship to make this a true celebration of ladies on bikes!
