Brief description: The Tim Kalisch Memorial Grand Loop starts in Golden and passes through Boulder, Lyons, Estes Park, Granby, Winter Park, and Idaho Springs. Climbing over 15,500 vertical feet in 200 miles, the Grand Loop isn’t called "grand" for nothing! The Grand Loop is indeed one of Colorado's most EPIC, single-day cycling loops. The Tim Kalisch Memorial Grand Loop is a Colorado Triple Crown event.
