Colorado Classic Bike Race @ Downtown Golden
Aug 23 @ 11:30 am – 2:00 pm

Colorado Classic Finish LineThe Colorado Classic comes to Golden on Saturday, August 24 and the route they have chosen will be an exciting day of fast-paced action right downtown.

On paper, Stage 3 in Golden looks like a sprinter’s delight with seven swift laps of a nine-mile circuit that starts and finishes under the iconic Golden arch downtown. But don’t be fooled as the short steep climb up the historic Washington Avenue is enough for a mini-Queen of the Mountain on the last lap. Seven laps means the racers will come through downtown SEVEN times – that’s a lot of great opportunity for spectating. New Terrain Brewery will also have a front row seat to the action, as the route will take the race right in front of the brewery.

Visit www.coloradoclassicgolden.com for all things race related, and watch an animation of the race route.
