Breckenridge 100 means trails will be busy Saturday
Saturday’s Breckenridge 100 mountain bike race will bring at times heavy traffic to a number of popular Summit County trails. Race organizers are asking trail users to exercise caution and yield to racers on course.
Trails will remain open to all users during the race, but noncompetitors should consider planning alternatives. (See accompanying schedule.) The three-loop race course incorporates a number of local trails between Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain and Como. Race organizers have announced the approximate times they anticipate certain sections of trail being especially busy. They recommend that other trail users consider alternate routes.
Spectators will be allowed on the course.
The 100-mile course includes sections of trail near Wheeler Pass, portions of the Colorado Trail along the West Ridge near the dredge boat and Copper Mountain, and the Peaks Trail, among others.
The race will start in downtown Breckenridge and finish at Carter Park. Each of the course’s three laps will pass through the park. There are also 68- and 32-mile races.
