Pikes Peak Assault This Coming Sunday

Update: I’ve posted Pikes Peak Assault photos.

The inaugural Assault on the Peak is this coming Sunday, August 29th. It’s a bike ride up the Pikes Peak highway. There have been some changes since I wrote about the ride in April.

Now instead of starting at the Pikes Peak highway toll gate in Cascade, the ride is going to start down in Manitou Springs at Memorial Park. This makes the ride 24.5 miles with over 7700 feet of climbing followed by descending that much!

Even though the ride has been lengthened, the price has been reduced. Instead of the originally announced price of $180, it is now $150. They’ve also added an option of riding to Glen Cove for $90.

The deadline to register online through BikeReg is Wednesday. You will also be able to register from 5:30 – 6:30 AM the morning of the ride.

Also along with the Pikes Peak ride, Peak Region is having a Bicycle Festival at the start/finish area. The bike Festival will start at 10 AM and run until 4 PM. The expo will be free with bike shops, frame builders, cycling apparel, etc.
