• Lookout Mountain Bike Ride and Hill Climb Race

    Submitted by 303cycling on April 6th, 2013

    Lookout Mtn. in Golden, CO is not only a local’s favorite, but it’s one of those rides that people seek out when visiting from out of state (as is evident by tourists in jeans throwing up all over themselves in the summer, using a rental bike with a bottle of Fierce Grape Gatorade stuck in the water-bottle cage (bless their hearts). Kidding. I’ve only seen 2 tourists actually throwing up. And they were definitely from sea-level. Lookout was also part of the final stage of the inaugural US Pro Challenge in the summer of 2011, further boosting its National popularity. Read more

    • Red Rocks Park Loop Bike Ride

      Submitted by Kris Thompson on June 7th, 2010

      This is one of the best longer rides in the greater metro area. Using mostly streets or as much as 75 percent trails, it takes in Washington Park and the Bear Creek system to launch you west to Red Rocks Park, one of the great destinations in the area. There, you climb steeply through slabs of Fountain Formation sandstone, a stunning backdrop to your ride that helps distract you from the steep, but mercifully short, climb. The City of Denver bought the property in 1926, developed it with help from the Civilian Conservation Corp during the Great Depression, and dedicated the amphitheater in 1941. It now serves as a spectacular site for rock concerts and a famous Easter Sunday sunrise service. Leaving Red Rocks, you scoot through the fossilized bones and footprints of Dinosaur Ridge just east of the park along Alameda Parkway, closed to automobile traffic between Hwy. 93 and Rooney Road. After joining the C-470 Trail, the ride peaks out near Green Mountain, descends to the 6th Avenue Trail, then works its way back to Denver on surface streets. If you ride this clockwise and skip the climb into Red Rocks, the descent on Rooney Road or the C-470 Trail is fast, smooth, and not to be missed. Read more

                      The race originally scheduled for this weekend has been canceled. Here is what was said on the forums…

                      he Colorado State Patrol has been unable to give us access to the venue prior to 6:00am on race day to design and groom a course. We would rather cancel this race than put on a poor-quality event.
