August 2017 Bikenridge Useletter


August is a month rich with hero dirt (from all the rain) and deep green tunnels of aspen and pine trees, fat squirrels, and colorful wildflowers. August is, of course, one of the best months for riding in Breckenridge (do I say that every month? Ha!)  Have you ever built a trail?  It’s fun, rewarding and every time you ride it, there is a sense of ownership! On August 5th, Join the Friends of Breckenridge Trails on the Mineral Hill Trail – Connect Minnie Mine to Lincoln Meadows!


The Firecracker 50 presented by Lincoln Park at the Wellington Neighborhood, had another successful run! (see a video recap above).


The Colorado Classic Stage 2 is in Breckenridge and features international pro men and women cyclists doing 5 to 10 laps of the grueling Breckenridge course and conquering Moonstone over and over again. WOW! It’s going to be another crazy party on Friday, August 11th.  Wondering where you can watch the race?  Here are some IDEAS!

Breckcreate also launches the Breckenridge International Festival of Arts (BIFA) on Friday, August 11th with some incredibly cool music, exhibits, arts, and performances.  BIFA always delivers!
