Ride day is just ahead. Let's roll!
Thank you for riding the 2013 Elevations Credit Union Buffalo Bicycle Classic!
More than 2,100 of you rode distances ranging from 14 to 110 miles. Along the way, scores of volunteers strove to keep you comfortable, on course and safe. Behind it all, our generous sponsors helped ensure that the dollars you spent on registration and raised in donations go directly to scholarships for high-performing students who qualify for financial aid.

About The Ride
The Buffalo Bicycle Classic is a cycling fundraiser. Since 2003, more than $1.8 million in scholarships have been awarded to promising students in CU-Boulder’s College of Arts and Sciences.
In recent years, the ride has attracted 2,500 participants -- CU alumni, kids in trailers, professional cyclists and everyone in between. Participants choose a course from several options and ride at their own pace. The shortest course, the "Little Buff," explores the wonderful bike path network in the City of Boulder. In 2013, we're adding ten miles to the Buff Epic up Boulder Canyon, and changing the course to include the Carter Lake climb.
