A fun week of riding, sponsored by Shimano and Big Ring Cycles (Shimano swag for all) where you start your day off with coffee, donuts and a great ride up Lookout Mountain! Starting at Big Ring Cycles in downtown Golden, 600 12th street. While there is no cost, registration is required and donations will be collected to benefit young cyclists in the Colorado High School Cycling League. https://golden-challenge.eventbrite.com/
New to the area?? Lookout is an iconic 4.5 mile climb of about 1,500 feet of elevation (the mountain with the “M” in Golden), details can be found HERE: https://303cycling.com/Lookout-Mountain-Hill-Climb-Bike-Ride/
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: Group rides
Join us for a casual group ride to the top of Lookout Mountain. We’ll start at Big Ring with coffee and donuts, then head out at 7 am at a friendly pace through the downtown arch and up Lookout Mountain. Just for making it to the top, you’ll be entered into a prize drawing for awesome Shimano gear!
Friday: Group ride with competitive individual finish
Same route but with prizes for the fastest woman and fastest men’s climbers! (Riders are welcome to come out to do the group ride and not be competitive. No judgement for those who chose to have fun instead of sprint!)
To qualify for Friday’s top prizes, you must have ridden at least 2 days prior.
To ensure riders safety, there will be a police escort on Friday.
Competitive finish is to the top of Lookout – with a casual ride down.
Wheels down at 7:00 am
S-phyre Shoes, Pearl Izumi Kit (Top and Bottom), Lazer Helmet, PRO Package (Tool, Pump, Bar Tape, Torque Wrench), and Big Ring Gift Certificates.
Special prize drawing on Friday for riders who have ridden every day!
