Aspen Silver Cycling, in partnership with the USA Pro Challenge is set to stage the inaugural Aspen Gran Fondo on June 14th in Aspen and Snowmass Colorado. This mass participation ride is open to all riders at all skill levels. The ride will showcase a 50 mile route with portions along the same route the pros will ride in the upcoming stage one and two of the 2014 USA Pro Challenge.
The course features two full service aid stations supporting the riders from Paepcke Park in downtown Aspen, exiting via highway 82 and up along the spectacular sites on Owl Creek Road. Peaking on a modest climb to Snowmass Village cyclists will then coast down the winding Brush Creek Road back to highway 82. The finale will be back at Paepcke Park for a “Hometown Picnic Style BBQ”.
Information is available on the Aspen-Snowmass page of the USA Pro Challenge web site.
