“We really want people to ride their bikes. We believe in bikes, and we think they can solve a lot of the world’s problems,” says Jon Vick of Adventure Fit sports marketing. “Everybody who comes out can have fun in their own way. It brings every aspect of the cycling community together, from competitive racers to I-ride-my-bike-four-times-a-year people.”
Denver’s Urban Assault Ride starts at 9 a.m. at Skyline Park, and competitors have three hours to complete all the challenges and re-turn to the park. Teams can sign up online until Friday or on Saturday at packet pick-up; the fee is $60 per person. Check out www.urbanassaultride.com/denver for details, then grab a map, tune up your bikes, and get ready to hit the streets.
