Switching to a do-it-yourself virtual ride - USE THE CODE DIY2020 FOR $15 OFF

When we opened registration for this year’s event, we were hopeful that by September we could have a modified in-person ride.  Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to present significant public health concerns and it became clear to us that it would be very difficult to conduct a ride that would be safe for the riders, volunteers, and the community. Without our signature event this year, we face an unprecedented challenge in fundraising to support our scholars.  The Buffalo Bicycle Classic made the difficult decision to move to a do-it-yourself/virtual ride this year.  


Your donation will help ensure we meet our scholarship commitments to our continuing scholars.  You can make a difference. Ride Bikes. Change Lives.


DATES:  Friday, August 28, 3:00pm – 7:00pm and Saturday, August 29, Noon – 4:00pm 

WHERE:  Avery Brewing Co - 4910 Nautilus Court N, Boulder CO 80301
The Buffalo Bicycle Classic tent will be by the front door. There is plenty of parking in the brewery’s parking lots or on the street. 

RIDER PACKET:  All registered riders will receive a 2020 BBC t-shirt, neck gaiter and a commemorative bib. You’ll also receive a coupon card for a pint of Avery beer from the Avery Brewing Taproom, CLIF bars and gels along with SKRATCH Labs single serving hydration mix. 


As an added bonus, riders over 21 will be able to take home a FREE 12-pack of Avery Brewing’s Stampede - a 4.5% ABV Colorado Gold Lager! Hopefully this will be an incentive to pick up your packet! “You had me a free Avery Beer!”

*Packets that are not picked up by August 29th will be mailed out. You will still receive a coupon for the 12-pack of Stampede but it is only redeemable at the Avery Brewing Co. 

ADDITIONAL BBC MERCHANDISE: Previous years merchandise (jerseys, shorts, socks, hats) will be available for sale at Packet Pick Up. Cash and checks only. If you ordered 2020 merchandise online, you will be receiving a separate email. It will be packaged separately.

What is a do-it-yourself virtual ride?

We encourage you to ride your bike virtually anywhere!  You get to ride your own distance and course at your own pace and time it yourself.  The 2-week window for this virtual ride is 09/06/2020-9/20/2020. If you want, you can upload your time and distance to our online results page.  If want to ride one of our suggested routes posted on our website, during the period of September 6-20, we will be offering treats to the BBC riders through partnerships with stores, coffee shops and restaurants along our routes. We have made a few route modifications for safety.  We have modified the Epic 75 and Epic to climb Lefthand Canyon to avoid construction in Boulder Canyon. 

Ride Only Registration vs Pledge Package

The Ride Only Registration starts at $75 for registration only.  You can purchase BBC logoed merchandise online during registration.  The Pledge Package you pay $35 at the time of registration and fundraise the remaining $265 before ride day to reach your goal of $300.  The Pledge Package includes the 2020 custom cycling kit (jersey, shorts, and socks). If you raise $500 or more you will receive a custom jacket by Primal, and better yet, our $1,000 fundraisers will receive an invitation the the Reception at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa, as well as a premium Buffalo Bicycle Classic branded item!
