Saturday, June 20th, 2015

Join the Trails and Open Space Coalition for the 21st Annual Starlight Spectacular on June 20th, 2015. This fun night-time bicycle ride is suitable for most ages and abilities. We’ve had kids as young as 8 and adults in their 80s ride with us! Choose your route, from 14 to 22 miles, starting and ending at Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center, through the City of Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City and the Garden of the Gods. We ride on streets, with lots of lighted directional signs and volunteers pointing the way. Two rest stops with music and refreshments enliven the route.

Before the ride, enjoy music, food and drink, costumes and contests! Prizes for best illuminated bike and best costume. New Prize category for Best Group Costume! Buy vintage Starlight shirts from prior years and other once-a-year goodies at our retail booth. Hot breakfast and more great prizes after the ride!
