Join us for the ACA Rist Hill Climb and Citizens Road Ride! Citizen riders leave the starting line first, with the ACA racers to follow. The racing begins 7:30am Sharp with all ACA categories leaving Masonville for a gradual climb towards Horsetooth Park. At the Park entrance you will have a short decent and its back to a short climb to the lake lookout area. Then it’s back to descending the back side of the Horsetooth lake to the small town of Stout. From Stout you will make your way on a mostly flat trek around the south end of the lake then heading north on the east side of Horsetooth. Don’t get comfortable with the fast fun flat your next turn is on Centennial Drive.
