Few cyclists know about this fantastic high mountain road bike ride.
There are 50, 75 and 100 mile route options, all with jaw dropping views and climbs.
The 100 mile century with over 10,000 feet of elevation gain will take you around Cripple Creek, Victor and Guffey. The half century has 4,000 feet of elevation gain and the 75 mile route 6,000 feet. The 50 mile route is shorter but the climbs are harder and it goes into the towns of Cripple Creek and Victor. You will see lots of wildlife on the 75 mile route and it has some rolling hills and yet some step climbs as well.
They are all fully supported, all on paved roads, should you want to skip a section and sag to the next rest stop. You can ride your own route, go up and turn around at any point as long as you are on the same course as our event.
You can start your ride with extra layers and then at each rest stop there will be drop bags, you can take some layers off and it will be waiting for you at the finish line. Back by popular demand there will be homemade cookies at each of the rest stops along with oranges, bananas, trail mix and P&J sandwiches.
Free lunch and free massages. The after party we will offer free lunch, massage and ice cream cones. You can purchase additional lunches at that time for guests. A great atmosphere to relax and socialize with fellow cyclists.
