Peak Region Cyclist Bicycle Festival

When: Sun., Aug. 29, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2010

I first heard of the inaugural Assault on the Peak from my husband, who considered riding it with friends. Last summer, he and these same cycling pals rode around the Peak, but 24.5 miles up and then 24.5 more back down? I thought he was nuts. You won't be able to watch today's race because the Pikes Peak Highway will be closed to cars, but you can attend the free, third annual Peak Region Cyclist Bicycle Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Memorial Park (500 Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs), and cheer for the riders as they end this ridiculousness around 11. — Kirsten Akens
