The $5 admission fee that gets you into Lake County High Schools Leiter Ballfield, 1000 West Sixth Street in Leadville, benefits both LIVESTRONG (Lance Armstrong is planning to compete in the Leadville 100 again this year) and the ten-year anniversary restoration project on Leadvilles Mineral Belt Trail. Show the locals some love Black Sheep Bikes (Fort Collins), Zinn Cycles (Boulder), Victoria Cycles (Salida) and Erikson Cycles (Steamboat Springs) are among the exhibitors from around the world and plan to get gritty with dirt demos on the new Lake County Pump Track. Bring the kids, too: Children twelve and under get in free, and Boulders Cycle Tykes will be giving pre-peloton workshops for all the little Lances and Lancettes.
The festival runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, and 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow. For more information, go to www.rockymountainbicycleshow.com.
