Ride the Rockies

The Denver Post Ride the Rockies Bicycle Tour

The Denver Post Ride The Rockies Bicycle Tour has attained world class status over the last 30 years as one of the country's premier recreational bicycle tour events. Each year, via a lottery registration system, 2000+ cyclists pedal the 6-7 day, 400+ mile trek through some of Colorado's most beautiful mountainous terrain and most hospitable communities.

Started in 2012 in partnership with the Governor's Office, The Denver Post Pedal The Plains Bicycle Tour is a 3-day recreational bicycle ride through the eastern plains of Colorado and offers its participants the beauty of the Colorado plains; along with agricultural "education" stops and great community hospitality.

Both events are produced by The Denver Post Community Foundation which raises and distributes funds to nonprofits serving the area of arts, youth, education and human services.



In June 1889, City Librarian John Cotton Dana established Denver's first public library in a wing of Denver High School. He referred to it as a "center of public happiness." In 1910, the city opened a Central Library building of its own, an elegant Greek temple design funded by philanthropist Andrew Carnegie and located in downtown's Civic Center Park. Between 1913 and 1920, Carnegie also underwrote construction of the city's first eight branch libraries. They would serve a growing city that had previously relied on traveling trunks of books.

The "Old Main" library in Civic Center Park served downtown Denver for 45 years, until the City commissioned the firm of Fisher and Fisher/Burnham Hoyt to design a new Central Library at the corner of Broadway and 14th Avenue. Opened in 1956, the new structure provided more than twice the space of the Carnegie building, but was expected to meet Denver Public Library's needs for only a decade. Denver experienced explosive growth between the 1950s and the 1970s. A string of new branch libraries opened to serve sprawling neighborhoods to the southeast and southwest. Among them were the four Ross branches, funded by the estate of Denver real estate investor Frederick Ross.

By the late 1980s, Library collections had outgrown the Central Library and most branch libraries. Three-quarters of Central Library materials were stored in basements and warehouses. Moreover, aging buildings weren't adaptable to the flowering technology of the Information Age. In 1990, an overwhelming 75 percent of the city's voters approved a $91.6 million bond issue to build a new Central Library and renovate, expand or build new branch library buildings. A 540,000 square-foot Central Library, the awesome design of world-renowned Michael Graves and the Denver firm of Klipp Colussy Jenks DuBois, opened in 1995.
