Pikes Peak Velo is putting on their cyclocross race at an exciting new venue this fall on Saturday, November 19th, 2011. The past several years they’ve used courses at Bear Creek Park but this year they’ll be at the Rock Ledge Ranch with part of the course going into the old reservoir area of Garden of the Gods.
The course is awesome with lots of double track, single track through Garden of the Gods Park, and super-fun (and hard) run-ups. There’s even a BBQ lunch and Pizza dinner for anyone who makes a donation (any amount) to Kids on Bikes. Check out the race flyer and course map for more information and don’t forget to mark your calendar! Because of the nature of the Rock Ledge Ranch please don’t ride through it for training.
There will be cyclocross categories for all skill levels: beginner to professional, plus a free kids race on a special course! Also, there will be a “Citizens Category” specifically reserved for anyone brand new to the sport of cyclocross. If you have a knobby tire bike but have never raced Cyclocross… now’s your chance!
