1,200 bicyclists enjoy 23rd annual Starlight Spectacular

Posted: Updated:

1,200 bicyclists took to the streets in Colorado Springs Saturday night for the 23rd annual Starlight Spectacular Bike Ride.

The event is a unique starlit bike ride through city streets, starting and ending at Garden of the Gods visitor center. It's a main source of funding for Trails and Open Space Coalition, which is dedicated to creating and preserving open spaces, trails, and parks.

Participants dress up their bikes with lights and wear costumes in accordance with the theme to compete for prizes. This year, the theme was Superheroes.

Darren Droge from Denver is a regular participant in the event, and he's won the award for best costume six years in a row. 

"I have had a longtime fascination with Snoopy and the classic story of Snoopy and the Red Baron. So finally after 40 years, I decided to go through with it. I re-created the Red Baron and it lives on tonight," Droge said.
