Sunday’s Breckenridge 100 race will mean heavy bike traffic at times on a number of popular Summit County trails. In order to accommodate competitors, other trail users are being asked by race organizers to use caution and yield to racers.
Correcting a previous report, all trails will remain open to other users during the race, but users should plan accordingly. (See accompanying schedule.) The three-loop race course incorporates a number of popular local trails, between Brekenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain and Como. Race organizers have listed approximate times that they anticipate certain sections of trail being especially busy. They recommend that other users consider alternate routes.
Spectators are allowed on the course.
The 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 start and finish will be at Carter Park in Breckenridge. Each of the 100-mile course’s three laps will pass through the park. There are also 32- and 68-mile races.
