Fourteenth Annual Circle Boulder by Bicycle to be held June 5
The City of Boulder Utilities Division’s will host its 14th Annual Circle Boulder by Bicycle, B-360 or B-180 self-guided ride, on Sunday, June 5, rain or shine. This leisurely, non-competitive ride follows the city’s bikeways beginning and ending at Scott Carpenter Park, 30th Street and Arapahoe Avenue, and is open to all ages and abilities. The fun, community ride showcases Boulder’s world-class bike path system.
Riders can register for free and start the ride for the 25-mile B-360 between 3 and 3:30 p.m. Those who want to participate in the shorter, 18-mile B-180 can register for free and begin the ride between 3:30 and 4 p.m. Participants who may need extra time for either ride can register at 2:30 p.m.
This year’s route will highlight the newly-completed underpass at 30th Street and two new path connections: on the west side of Foothills Parkway, connecting to the Goose Creek Path, and from 48th Street, connecting to the Boulder Creek Path. Participants will loop around Boulder using a linking network of paths, neighborhood streets and unpaved trails.
A free, post-ride party will take place at Scott Carpenter Park, where the ride began. The free party starts at 5 p.m.
Riders are reminded to carry water and wear appropriate gear, including a helmet. Participants must stay on trails and yield to other users. No dogs are allowed.
