Why are you making this change?
Our two overarching Pedal 4 Possible goals have always been to provide a safe ride and a successful fundraising event.
With Colorado’s booming population, the roadways in Boulder County—and throughout the Front Range—are becoming increasingly congested with traffic and construction. Due to this increase in traffic, we were becoming concerned about our ability to provide a safe and controlled event, especially for our adaptive riders.
The safety concerns and survey feedback, coupled with the need for a new event venue, convinced us that it is time to move Pedal 4 Possible off the roadways.
Why did you choose High Plains Raceway? Isn’t it far away?
The Pedal 4 Possible committee conducted an exhaustive search of possible venues along the Front Range from Ft. Collins to Colorado Springs. At High Plains, we found a great mix of safety, accessibility, flexibility, and availability. The Raceway is typically only open to private auto clubs, so this will provide a unique opportunity for you to experience one of America’s greatest amateur road racing facilities. Pedal 4 Possible will be the venue’s very first cycling event!
High Plains is an easy drive on lightly-driven roads and is a little more than an hour from Craig Hospital.
Why is the event in October? What about the weather?
As you might expect, moving an event of this size with less than a year’s notice required us to be flexible with our date. We’re excited because the average temperature at the track in October is 66 degrees—perfect for a cycling event!
Won’t it be boring riding around a track?
A Craig event will never be boring! If there’s anything we know how to do, it’s how to have fun. No boring oval loop here!
With its rolling terrain and open spaces, High Plains Raceway is technical, challenging, and very safe. Here are some course stats:
The committee is working hard to create unique challenges and experiences for each course distance—potentially including themed aid station, costume contests, and of course, an epic post-ride party with food, music, and beer.
What type of experience can I expect? Will you offer the same distances?
Despite the change in venue and format, we still plan to offer various distances with staggered start times. Want to try out your new handcycle with a 10K spin? Great! Because High Plains is a looping course, it’s perfectly OK for you to modify your distance at any time—bail when you’re ready or add laps. Stay tuned for more details!
What about safety?
The best part of P4P: At the Raceway is what will be missing—the cars! You’ll be able to ride without worrying about course maps, navigating traffic signals and railroad crossings, and all the typical road ride concerns. We will continue to provide course marshals, an aid station, and SAG Wagons. As always, we will have medical personnel and ambulances on standby (not that you’re likely to need them).
Can I still earn a jersey?
Earning the yearly P4P jersey is an important tradition for many of our riders, and that won’t change! We continue to have an excellent relationship with PEARL iZUMi and our favorite designer will once again create a custom jersey and dri-fit shirt for participants who raise $300 or more. K
Will you still need volunteers?
Yes! We will need many volunteers in a variety of capacities, from check-in to cheerleading. As our plans develop, we will determine our volunteer roles. Keep an eye on the website for details about the ways you can help.
How can my company or organization sponsor P4P?
Pedal 4 Possible’s new format offers many opportunities for your company to support our important philanthropic mission while receiving marketing exposure. For a list of sponsorship opportunities, contact Caroline Craven, Director of Sponsorship & Engagement, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-789-8578.
What is the registration fee?
How many people are on a team?
Teams must have at least two members.
Do I need to register my child?
Yes. We require riders of of all ages* to register.
*If your child is 3 or under and riding a trailer, you do not need to register them. Only children who are riding independently on their own bike need to be registered.
How do I participate virtually?
Celebrate what’s possible from your own homes and neighborhoods by doing any kind of recreational activity from October 11-15. Prefer to complete your activity in one day? Great! Do you want to take it slow-and-steady? That's fine too! You get to create your own goals and rules!
Make sure you tag your photos and videos of your activity on your own social media accounts using the hashtag #P4P23. We will highlight some of these pics and participant stories during Pedal 4 Possible week on Craig's social media channels.
Can I register more than one person at a time?
Yes! You may register multiple participants in one registration payment. Please make sure you have accurate Jersey/Dri-fit Top sizes.
NOTE: As long as you have used separate emails for each participant, everyone registered will have access to their own personal page in the Fundraising Center.
I registered but now I can't attend. Can I get a refund?
You are permitted to move your registration to another participant, but we cannot offer a refund for any reason.
I registered last year, but I can't remember my password. How do I reset it?

What is my Fundraising Center and where do I find it?
During your registration, you will have the opportunity to build your fundraising page. After you login, click on the “profile” link in the dropdown menu at the top-right corner of the page. Once there, you’ll see links to edit your fundraiser, view donations, and send emails. Our 2023 Fundraising Guide walks through using your Fundraising Center. Check it out for additional tips and tricks to help you maximize your fundraising efforts!
Am I required to fundraise in order to participate?
Fundraising is not required, but we strongly encourage each participant to raise money to support patients at Craig. Plus, you'll earn fundraising prizes if you raise $300 or more by October 23!
When you register, you will be asked if you would like to start a fundraiser - this is where you would input your goal and why you are participating, if you wish to fundraise.
What are the fundraising incentive levels and what do I get if I reach them?
We have fundraising incentive gifts at the $300, $500, $1500, and $5000 levels! Items are tbd, but check back soon for updates.
I raised $300! When will I receive my jersey or dri-fit top?
Participants that raise $300 (registration fee not included) by 8/11 will receive their jersey or dri-fit top before the event. Jerseys and dri-fit tops earned after 8/11 will be mailed several weeks after the event. Participants may continue to fundraise until October 23!
What are the jersey and dri-fit top size options?
Both jerseys and dri-fit tops fall into the standard fit category. Please see the chart below for measurements and please note they do run small!
What if my jersey or dri-fit top doesn't fit?
We recommend double checking the size chart before submitting your size. Jerseys and dri-fit tops cannot be traded for different sizes after October 23.
Are there any sharp turns on the track?
While there are no sharp turns, there is one turn coming out of the downhill section. The track is also flat and rides similar to a road course - it does not have banks on any turns.
Can my child ride in a trailer?
Bike trailers and trailer bikes (also known by the brand name Trail-a-Bike) are welcome on all courses.
Will there be aid stations?
Yes! We will have a centrally located aid station along the course.
Do I have to wear a helmet?
Yes, all riders (no matter the age) must wear helmets at all times when cycling.
