    Submitted by Bill Plock on May 11th, 2020

    On Saturday, professional triathlete and Boulder native, Sam Long “Everested” a combination of Lee Hill Road and Deer Trail Road. In exactly 10 hours, Sam ascended and descended those roads 15 times. He rode a 133 miles and climbed 29,219 feet averaging 254 watts. Think about all those descents at near zero watts–pretty impressive. The 4.52 mile climb is notorious in the Boulder averaging an 8% grade for nearly 1,900 feet of climbing. By comparison the climb on Lookout Mountain, Pillars to Post, is almost the same distance but climbs 1,200 feet, For math fanatics, there is a slight hill on the descent of Lee Hill that adds to the totals.  Read more

      This ride is a little longer than the Olde Stage ride but has alot of the same features. This may sound familiar but the ride starts at the corner of Broadway and Lee Hill Drive in North Boulder. You can ride this loop in either direction but I prefer going counter clockwise. This way you get a little more of a warm up on 36. Read more
