SHORT BIKE COURSE

SHORT BIKE COURSE: 33.1 miles, 4622′ climbing

 

A brand new (and super fun) format for 2017! The short course will contain 2 timed segments, with the rest of the course untimed allowing you to ride with friends, at whatever pace you like! The course will begin with a neutral roll-out of Boulder, climbing up Sunshine Canyon. Gravel begins on Co Rd 83 with a climb up to the Rowena Aid Station. The 1st timed section is a 2 mile section of fast single track, going downhill on the Rowena trail. The smooth pavement of Lefthand Canyon will take you up to the next section of gravel: Sawmill Road. Next stop is the Switzerland Trail/Gold Hill Rd Aid Station where get refreshed and fill up on CLIF products and NUUN hydration. Then, cruise into historic Gold Hill and get ready for the final timed section, a .3 mile sprint up to the top of Sunshine Canyon. The final 10 miles are untimed and a great chance to enjoy the views as you descend Sunshine Canyon all the way back to North Boulder Park. A cold Oskar Blues beer and fresh tacos await you at the finish line!
