The event directors of the Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb recently reached out to past participants asking for their preference in determining the date for the 2014 version of the event.  After receiving more than 200 votes, August 24 was chosen by more than a 2 to 1 margin.

The Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb is the ultimate test for cyclists as the participants compete on the same 20km course that the automobiles and motorcycles use in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb every summer.

In addition to the USA Cycling sanctioned races, there will once again be a Fun Ride open to all citizen cyclists (Fun Ride participants will have three distance options this year – 5km, 10km or the full 20km).   The Pikes Peak Highway is closed to automobile traffic during the event and there will be fully supported rest stops to assist cyclists in their quest to reach the summit.

The event will be part of the 2014 Rocky Mountain State Games menu of sports event for Colorado athletes of all ages and skill levels.

On-Line registration will open late January at
