Start & Cut-Off Times

Food and Fuel
We will have plenty of variety on course from chips and pretzels to fresh fruit, cookies and delicious Clif Bar products. Hydration/sports drink and water will be provided at all stations and the additional treat of a light lunch at the Loveland Aid Station. Always carry additional water and energy snacks.
Finish Line Feast After you complete your epic Colorado cycling experience, enjoy a scrumptious meal to refuel and replenish those hard-working legs. Meat lovers, vegetarians and gluten-free will all be happy as we have curated a menu from the legendary Footers Catering.
Additional meal tickets for your friends and family can be purchased on site for an additional $25.
