As Colorado’s leading real estate company, Coldwell Banker will host its annual “Ride the Range” charity bike ride on September 13-17, 2010.  The event is held in conjunction with the company’s September cancer awareness month and will benefit the American Cancer Society.  Participants will enjoy 12 stages encompassing 316 miles through nine Colorado counties over five days of riding.

“It’s time to gear up for what may be our best Ride the Range cycling tour and fundraising event ever,” said Chris Mygatt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Colorado.  It’s spectacular and challenging, and the funds raised will benefit a great cause.  Each stage of the ride will begin and end at a Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office along the Front Range and throughout metro Denver.  Ride the Range also presents a great opportunity for the media to cover this annual event.” 

 Stage one of the ride covers 68 miles from Colorado Springs to Parker, while stage two covers 64 miles from Highlands Ranch to Evergreen.  Stage three departs from Evergreen with riders proceeding to Boulder where they will spend the night.  Stage four starts in Boulder and ends in Fort Collins.  The following morning, riders will depart from Fort Collins and proceed to Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices in Denver.  All 14 Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices will be visited during the ride. 

Each Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office will have one core rider who they will help raise $1,500 and $500 for each additional rider. This year’s fundraising goal is at least $40,000 which will go directly to the American Cancer Society.  If you would like to join the company in its fight against cancer and support the American Cancer Society, please consider a charitable contribution.  Each donation of at least $200 or more will receive a limited edition Ride the Range cycling team kit (jersey and bib shorts) or Coldwell Banker golf jersey whiles supplies last on a first come basis.   Details are available online at
