PARKING DURING BIKE RACES
Downtown will be busy! If you live close, walking or biking is recommended. If you are coming from outside of Golden, consider taking the light rail to the Jefferson County Government stop and riding your bike downtown. Try the free Clear Creek public parking lot at 304 10th Street. It's open from 7 a. m. - 10 p.m. No overnight parking. Parking garages downtown will also be open to the public but get there early, as access to them will be limited.
Street closures may be subject to change on race day at the discretion of the Golden Police Department or the Colorado State Patrol.
