The Mead Roubaix Festival invites cyclists to participate in their April 22 race

Mead, CO March 27, 2012 – The Mead Roubaix Festival, presented by the Mead Area Chamber of Commerce and Rally Sports Cycling Team, invites cyclists to register for the April race.

Last year, the first Mead Roubaix Festival pulled in over 600 riders. The event is two-parts including a bicycle race and a community festival. This year’s Mead Roubaix Festival will be held on Sunday, April 22, 2012 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The word “roubaix” is derived from the French word rubble and has come to refer to a bike race where the riders ride a route that has paved and unpaved sections. The Mead Roubaix bike race is a 12.5-mile loop on a mixture of hard packed dirt and paved roads around the town of Mead.

Mead, Colorado, “a little town with a big future,” is located a mile west of I25 and approximately 36 miles north of Denver.

Chris Johnson, director of Northern Colorado Cycling Events cycled in the race last year. He believes the Mead Roubaix is unique because it confronts riders with challenges and many different aspects of race fitness, from handling on loose surfaces, to power climbs, to unpredictable winds, to a fast and furious drag strip finish.
