Assault on the Peak

When: Sun., Aug. 28 2011

Can't make it to Denver today to see the final stage of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge? That's OK. You can fill your bike cravings locally. Up to 1,500 cyclists will be taking on the second annual Assault on the Peak (ridepikespeak.com). The aforementioned peak, of course, is Pike's very own fourteener, and when those crazy folk finish off the 49-mile closed-course event, they'll be having a beer at the free and open-to-the-public fourth annual Peak Region Cyclist Bicycle Festival in Manitou Springs' Memorial Park (502 Manitou Ave., peakregioncyclist.com), which runs from 10 to 5. Come congratulate the riders on a job well done, and check out gear vendors, BMX demos and a bike swap. — Kirsten Akens
