is a two-wheeled adventure with a rewarding twist: gold nuggets. There will be over 100 gold-painted rocks which can be exchanged for Lucky's Market gift cards, a REEB bike frame, Pearl Izumi gift certificates, and more.
The bike courses offer a phenomenal ride through Boulder County’s most scenic and historic gold mining past. Whether you choose the short or the long course, you’ll be treated to primitive roads, back county climbs, breathtaking (literally) views, and virtually every kind of trail and surface you can expect in the Rockies. You'll pass by abandoned gold and silver mines, and cruise through the quaint town of Gold Hill. There are 3 timed sections on the bike course, with the majority of the course being untimed. This allows you to ride with friends at your own pace without having to race up the big climbs. Once you’ve crossed the finish line, we’ll be waiting with cold beers, gourmet tacos, and lots of time for you to kick back, relax, and share your good times. This is
ride of the season for adventurous cyclists looking for an unforgettable day on their bikes.
