American Women’s Cycling at the Colorado Classic

The Colorado Classic is a women’s pro race this year, and you can watch live on the web every day August 22-25, 2019. https://www.coloradoclassic.com

The race creates a synergy between collaborative movements in cycling and sustainability.  It is billed the Greenest Bike Race in North America.

They have an Open Streets event in Denver Sunday August 25 before the race, where streets are made car-free to be completely family friendly, creating an invitation for people to bicycle, scoot, skate and walk.

Today’s stage is in beautiful Avon, Colorado, beginning at 1pm.  With a huge climb and mountains all around, it is sure to be a classic.  Here are highlights from yesterday’s 1st stage.
