This great event has two parts to it in 2012. There is the Race sanctioned by USA Cycling and the ACA, and the non-competitive Ride.
THE CHALLENGE RIDE
This is a timed ride...unless you don't want to be timed.
The Ride has two finish lines. Finish 1 is the ride to the top of the pavement, a heart pounding 7 mile climb up Sunshine Canyon. However if you receive a minimum of $50 dollars donated in your name through your donation page, which is attached to your registration confirmation email, you have been challenged to ride to the top of the climb which is finish 2. This is another 2 miles of dirt road with sections of up to 16% grade. This grueling extra 2 miles of the climb will challenge you to ride hard and give you the satisfaction of climbing one of Boulder County's toughest climbs.
All proceeds go The Community Foundation - Boulder County which is a non-profit organization and works with non-profit organizations throughout the county, making it a better place to live. For more information on The Community Foundation click here.
