The 4-day challenge is highlighted by our ALP Climbing Ride on Saturday the 26th. We start in Boulder, climb up 4-mile to Logan Mill, up and down Arkansas Mtn to Sugarloaf, up to the Peak to Peak, and finish with the shelf road to Eldora Ski area- a 26mile ride with almost 5,000ft of climbing and sections up to 17% on dirt roads. It will test everyone’s fitness, bike handling, and comfort zone. i.e.- a chance to make yourself a better and more complete bike rider. Here is a link to the route on Strava-https://www.strava.com/segments/10356632?filter=overall&gender=F

You do not have to live in Colorado or come to the ALP ride on the 26th. That’s the cool thing, no matter where you live you can participate (as long as there is something you can climb on your bike).
You do not have to do the challenge in order to come on the Saturday ALP ride.
This challenge and the ALP ride are open to everyone. So invite your friends, family, teammates, etc. The more the merrier! This is our way of motivating people to train for a fun/hard event in September and giving non-ALP athletes a chance to ride with us and see how cool our little ALP community is.
We will have prizes for the 4-day challenge. These prizes include-
A free month of coaching ($225 value)
A one hour skills/clinic with your ALP coach of choice ($85 value)
ALP Schwag (hats, T-shirt, Pactimo Jersey)
