Pro Challenge brings ‘mass’ ride to Fort Collins

FORT COLLINS – A mass-participation bike ride will take place in Fort Collins on Sunday, Aug. 10, eight days before the start of the USA Pro Challenge professional race.

The ride, called the Pro Challenge Experience, is being presented by UnitedHealthcare and is open to all ages. It will begin and end on the Colorado State University campus in Fort Collins, a host city for last year’s professional race.

Participants can ride one of three distances – 25, 50 or 100 miles.

The ride will revisit some of Northern Colorado’s signature cycling challenges, including Manhattan Road, Red Feather Lakes and Owl Canyon.

This year’s event also will incorporate the Horsetooth Reservoir climbs featured in Stage 6 of the 2013 USA Pro Challenge.

With the support of the Rist Canyon Volunteer Fire Department and Larimer County, this will be the first organized cycling event to return to legendary Rist Canyon since the natural disasters of 2012 and 2013.
