303 Weekend Event Guide

At 303cycling.com we know that the best type of community is built on two wheels--unless you are counting community gardens. Because those are pretty great too. Imagine if you could combine a community garden WITH bikes. Perfection. But, I digress. Here's our list for the weekend. We have to admit that it's a pretty great, but then of course, we do live in Colorado. Easy win.

Pure Fun

  • Saturday, March 29th, 12 p.m. is the CycloHunter Scavenger Race. It is just what it sounds like. A good old fashioned Scavenger Hunt Race...by bike. Teams of one, two and three welcome.
    Manifests will be handed out when the race starts. Prize pool starts at $400.
  • Saturday evening, March 29th The 5th Annual Yeti Beti/COMBA Fundraiser. It's our Annual Spring Kickoff party! If you have attended in the past, you know the drill.

Pure Suffering

Group Rides (a mix of fun AND suffering)
Looking for a group ride? We hear this over and over again! Here's a few to hook you up. All are open to the public and have a mix of team members and individuals. Check with the shop if weather is questionable. Rides require a road bike but vary in speed/required skill.

  • Saturdays (North Boulder) Boulder Cycle Sport North Ride.
    Ride leaves at 10 a.m. from BCS North. The pace (pretty fast) and route is determined by the group of the day. Solid handling skills and knowledge of the area required.
  • Saturdays (Cherry Creek) Adventure Cycling Group Ride. The shop opens at 9:30 a.m. for bagels and coffee and maintenance needs. This no-drop ride leaves at 10 a.m. Avg distance is 24-28 miles with several points of regrouping along the way. For any questions, please call Erik at 303-699-2514.
  • Sundays (Golden) Peak Cycles Group Ride.This ride is fast paced, but fun (avgs 20 mph...climbing). It's led by "Big George" Mullen, master fitter at Peak. The group splits several times so may get dropped, but you probably won't be alone. Women are welcome (and they attend)! For questions, give the shop a call at (303) 216-1616.
  • Sundays (Highlands Ranch) BikeSource Group Ride. The ride rolls out from the BikeSource parking lot (C-470 and University) at 9 a.m. This is a no drop ride usually averaging 30-40 miles. Thanks to "Commuter Kyle" for sharing!
