This year we ride 55 miles, as Doug would have been 55, on a route with only minor changes from the previous year. A good warm up into downtown Golden will prepare you for the climb up Lookout Mountain to the first aid station. We’ll then head West, once again looping the neighborhood surrounding Chief Hosa. Aid station two is a welcome sight along the bike path. The third leg takes us towards Evergreen via the roller coaster ride down Kerr Gulch Road to Bear Creek Canyon. A third aid station is located in Bear Creek Lake Park before riding through the park and eventually west towards Rooney Road. The 55 mile riders will likely join up with 25 mile riders at the final joint aid station at the base of Dinosaur Ridge. A well-earned, cold beer awaits you at Cannonball Creek Brewing after the steep finishing stretch up Washington Road.

New for 2020! This shorter route option begins at the house and travels into downtown Golden where you’ll find the first of two aid stations. Then ride south past Colorado School of Mines  before joining the C-470 trail before eventually traveling south on US 40. You’ll climb up and over Dinosaur Ridge to reach the final aid station where you’ll likely meet up with 55-mile riders for the finish into Golden and up steep Washington Ave where a cold beer awaits you at Cannonball Creek Brewing.
