Ride Monarch Pass and watch the Pro Challenge, Wednesday August 20th.
CRC’s Jeff Kahler is planning on going to the Pro Challenge race this Wednesday and ride up Monarch pass prior to the race coming over the pass and then back to finish at the ski area. The road will be closed to cars so it should be a great ride up and down, after the race.
Anyone who would like to join Jeff, please let him know in advance at 303-906-4631
Meet at 7:30 am at the Lincoln station RTD Park -n-ride at 1-25 and Lincoln. Car pool to Poncha Springs, park the cars and ride the 18 miles to the top of Monarch Pass (3,900 ft gain). Should be at the top around noon and wait to watch the racers come over the top, head back down the 1.5 miles to the ski area, get something to eat/drink and wait for the finish at about 4:00. 5ish, head on the bikes back down the quick trip to Poncha Springs. Drive back to Denver in the evening.
Highway 50 will be closed to cars so the road will be open to bikers and walkers only.
