We also throw in three mystery challenges, says media contact Sharon Cutler. It could be a riddle or a picture of a statue on the bike path. You have to integrate these extra stops on your preset course. In all, the ride is twenty to thirty miles long, with checkpoints about every five miles. We want people to discover that it's easy to ride around Denver on their bike, Cutler explains. You can actually ride from downtown to Wheat Ridge, which is only five miles on the bike path.
After the ride, stick around for a raffle and New Belgium beer party.
The fun starts at 9 a.m. at the corner of 16th and Arapahoe streets; admission is $45 to $60 per person, depending on when you purchase tickets. For details, go to www.urbanassaultride.com.
