Best 50 mile or less bike get together in Colorado

I have done Elephant before, but I am curious what is the best 50 miles and under get together? The Buena Vista one looks rather intrigueing to me. Any thoughts on those or others would be great

Thanks

Tour de Vineyards in Palisade. It's 25 easy miles, much less crowded than E-Rock, and a big wine tasting festival follows.

I'm riding the Buena Vista century for the first time this year. I've heard it's a good ride and post ride meal/beer.
