Bikes, booze, bites and beats — these are a few of our favorite things. The event which has managed to combine all of that into three days of awesome is back to take on Denver once again. Last year, the Velorama Festival lit up RiNo with a party that celebrated the Colorado Classic bike race with beer, food trucks and music from big names like Death Cab For Cutie and Wilco, to name a few. And while last year admittedly hit some snags with long lines, Velorama Colorado will bring some of the world’s best cyclists to race in the Denver portion of the Colorado Classic from August 17 to 19. Joining these cyclists will be chart-topping musicians — all happening in RiNo. Check out the lineup below. These artists will be joined by a killer arrangement of vendors from independent craft beer breweries to cider, wine and food.
