The Broadmoor Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb

When: Sun., Aug. 9 2015

Because bicycling straight up a mountain for personal enjoyment sounds masochistic if not straight up Sisyphean, let's consider these be-helmeted ass-sweaters in terms of Maslow's hierarchy of needs. Physiological needs are met; safety needs are met; love, belonging, esteem — all good. That leaves self-actualization, otherwise known as (we'll hypothesize) an inexplicable desire to join the sixth annual Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb, a 12.5-mile, USA Cycling-sanctioned road race and adjoining noncompetitive cycling event. There are many categories and varying entry fees, so see coloradospringssports.org for more details. Otherwise, the gateway fee is $5 to $12 and does not include further psychological analysis. — Bryce Crawford
