Denver, CO – April 10, 2012 – Riding on two wheels has long been a favorite way to tour the scenic streets of the Mile High City and now, cyclists of all skill levels can take part in an unprecedented ride at the inaugural Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Bike Tour.

The 24-mile course will take 750 cyclists from Civic Center Park, through many of the city’s breathtaking parks, unique neighborhoods and landmarks with views of the stunning Rocky Mountains along the way. The Bike Tour will start prior to the 3rd annual Sports Authority Rock ‘n’ Roll Denver Marathon & ½ Marathon benefiting the Prostate Cancer Foundation on Saturday, September 22nd.

“Colorado is known for its love of bicycling and is extremely bike-friendly, so we’re really excited to be able to offer this option to riders here,” said Kari Logan, Event Director. “So many athletes love to both ride and run, and this non-competitive format allows a broad range of people to experience Rock ‘n’ Roll in a new way.”

What is Boulder Bike Tours

Return after a seasonal break on highlighting cycling businesses in our 303 area. This week we are highlighting Boulder Bike Tours.

[303Cycling] What made you want to start Boulder Bike Tours

I got lured into the bike world kind of late in life by volunteering for BMA, the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance. But once I was bitten by the bug I just loved being on two wheels. So the Tour company is an extension of that enjoyment and a way for me to turn people on to the local biking scene.

[303Cycling] What is the more popular bike route you take your clients on and who are your typical clients?

Most of our clients are visitors and tourists who come to Boulder for business or personal reasons. They want to sample the area riding without exceeding their skills, having to put together the equipment or find the best trails and road routes. Also most customers come from areas where mountainous terrain is not available so our most popular tours are ones on the beginner/intermediate trails near town. However we're seeing more demand for guided road rides which as we know Boulder has in abundance.

RAAM CEO Challenge training ride

News Item: 

Race Across America (RAAM) is billed as "The World's Toughest Bicycle Race" and, for the solo division, one could make a convincing argument that the 3,000 mile coast to coast non-stop event is just that. However while still a big challenge, for the RAAM relay divisions the race is actually fun. The Boulder based Race Across America is working hard to promote relay RAAM and was happy to have the CEO Challenges Team choose our city as the place it would hold its pre-race 420 mile training weekend. The loop course started and finished in Boulder on a route that included Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming. CEOs from California and New Jersey took part and, though tired by the finish, had a great time. Aside from successfully completing the RAAM route the team's goals include raising $50,000 for the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
