Billed as an entertainment experience that will be part bike race and celebration of bicycle culture, part music festival, part craft-goods marketplace, and entirely entertaining.

From August 11-13, Velorama Festival & Colorado Classic will feature national and prominent local music acts; some of the world’s best cyclists; and hundreds of vendors in a festival marketplace that includes a Bike and Lifestyle Expo and is anchored by Denver Flea and the independent craft makers of beer, cider and wine from Drink RiNo.

Rino Supply Company will sit prominently at the start / finish of the 4 day field of events, performances and activations in the RiNo Art District at 31st and Walnut in Denver. As a community focused business, the number one priority at Rino Supply was to maintain access to all medical patients regardless of such a profound event centralized within a block of the dispensary. As such, Rino Supply and Velorama have taken every measure to extend access to Rino Supply Company medical marijuana patients as well as ticket holders looking to view the Rino Supply art gallery.

More About the Colorado Classic Bike Race

Fast, competitive circuits dominate a four-day race throughout the Colorado Classic Course. Routes in Colorado Springs, Breckenridge and Denver are designed to challenge riders, highlight Colorado and enhance the fan experience.

The pro cyclists in the inaugural Colorado Classic men’s race will cover 313 mile and endure more than 20,000 feet of intense, high-altitude climbing in four stages that showcase the State’s incredible terrain and enhance viewing and entertainment options for fans.

The action moves to Denver for the stages 3 and 4 of the men’s race, as the Colorado Classic anchors the first-ever Velorama Festival; a 3-day bike, music and craft festival in the city’s Rino Art District. From August 11-13, Velorama will feature musical acts; some of the world’s best cyclists competing in the final two stages of the Colorado Classic. In addition, hundreds of vendors will convene in an adjacent lot for a festival marketplace that includes a Bike and Lifestyle Expo and is anchored by the Denver Flea and the independent craft makers of beer, cider and wine in the Drink RiNo group.

Stage three will be contested on an 81 mile out and back course that runs from the RiNo race hub (directly in front of Rino Supply Company at 31st and Walnut) to the mountains West of Denver on the Peak to Peak Highway, and then returns to the Mile High City through scenic Golden Gate Canyon State Park and via what is expected to be a finishing spring through the streets of Denver, with speeds approaching 60 mph!

Among the day’s highlights will be race action on Gap Road in the foothills West of Denver. On that stretch, riders will face the toughest part of the course, or King of the Mountain (KOM) section, and dirt roads with steep, rolling hills.

Stage four will once again highlight the start and finish area within the Velorama Festival grounds and send riders on a 7.5 mile city circuit that stretches from RiNo Art District to City Park and back. Riders will do 10 laps in the final stage for a total of 74.6 miles on what is expected to be a thrilling, intense and colorful day of racing.
