Head down to Harry A. Nottingham Park to watch some of the fastest female cyclists in the world tackle a flat, fast 5-mile circuit for seven laps around Avon’s core. The final 14-mile lap will take racers up one of Colorado’s most notorious climbs, the ridiculously steep Bachelor Gulch (fan accessible by bike or foot only) before riders scream back down a fast, technical descent into Avon to finish on Lake Street. The park will be bustling with activity including gear and food vendors, a giant screen live-streaming the race, and a special performance from the Sweet Lilies beginning at 1 p.m. Avon’s town core will be closed to vehicle traffic beginning at noon, so be sure to get there early. Parking is available at the Elk and Bear lots at the base of Beaver Creek.
