Golden Gran Fondo Named 10 Best by Outside Magazine
GOLDEN GRAN FONDO
Starting in historic Golden, CO, this event features long Rocky Mountain climbs and descents, elevations between 5,600 - 11,000 feet above sea level, and a great downtown park atmosphere for the finish line party.
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 to downtown. Parking garages in downtown will 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.
