Steamboat Springs is having their first annual Ride 4 Yellow mountain bike event, which is going to be held at the beautiful Steamboat Ski Mountain. The ride is 26 miles on a singletrack across the stunning Continental Divide Trail of the Rockies. The ride starts on Rabbit Ears Pass and ends at the top of the Gondola at Steamboat Ski Area. There also will be another ride that will be on the cross country trails within Steamboat. One of the exciting aspects is that Lance Armstrong, a cycling superstar plans to pedal the 26-miles to signature mountain bike rides! For Steamboat, Armstrong’s commitment is yet another boon in a summer that’s so far been full of good news for cyclists.
The Ride 4 Yellow is an event that was originated by a group of passionate people in Steamboat Springs who want to help make a difference in the fight against Cancer.
This event will take place on Sunday, August 8, 2010 and features 2 cycling events. The route that will take place is at the 10,000 ft Dumont Lake on Rabbit Ears Pass just outside of Steamboat and will wind along the Continental Divide with over 26-miles of single-track toward the Steamboat Ski Area. The ride will finish at the top of the Gondola.
