4/22/13 Tour of Golden to Kick Off Mayors' Ride

Our 2013 Mayors' Ride symbolically kicks off on Earth Day April 22 from Golden, CO. Take a look at the video above to better understand why. Here is what HiWHeel legend Steve Stevens, is saying about the tour he will be leading on that day:

My ride will cover, the Bike Park – the Mountain Bike Trails – the Lookout Mountain road.
And a few of the paved commuter and tourist  trails. It will follow the Clear Creek trail along the
National Championship Kayak Course. Along Lookout Mountain, it will  pass below the
famous “M” (for the Colorado School of Mines) on Mt. Zion right next to it and the hang gliding launch. It will come down the hill (at up to 45 MPH ) where, in 1869, 
Jim Boyd had the first recorded bike accident in Colorado -  on his wooden wheeled Velocipede.

It will also pass Wash Ave Hill where, in 1891, Golden hosted the first official Colorado “State Hill Climb Championship”.
