The Ride: Roll along the scenic Colorado Front Range and join the thousands of riders in this 1st stage of the Subaru Elephant Rock Cycling Festival. Stage 1 begins in Castle Rock and works its way South along Hwy 83 towards Colorado Springs. Rolling hills and pastoral green fields provide scenic delights along this first stretch of your 100 mile journey.
The Workout: The rollers provide some nice high resistance climbs and will put you in the red. However, for the most part, we will attempt to be patient and keep our enthusiasm under control. This is the first 1 hour in a 5.5 hour ride, so we are looking to maintain an aerobic heart rate and cadences between 80 to 90 RPM.
