Things to Do

Today: BoulDurango launches 470 miles of cycling and craft breweries

There's a special synchronicity between sports and beer. Sure, you can sip a brew while you're watching your favorite team -- but how are you going to burn off the calories? Maybe by riding a bicycle -- and there's no better way to relax after that than with a beer.

The Tour of BoulDurango melds the best of both worlds with a five-day, 470-mile bike trip stopping at craft breweries and brewpubs. It leaves today from the Avery Tap Room, 5757 Arapahoe Avenue, Unit B1 in Boulder, and ends on Friday, July 23 in Durango. For all the details, call 303-440-4324 or go to
