Today is the day long awaited by Summit County bicycle enthusiasts. We have some helpful tips for our guests to navigate to the race and to your condo in Keystone! The USA Pro Cycling tour is expected to bring a record-breaking number of spectators to Colorado.
On Saturday, 8/27 I-70 in the Summit County area will be impacted from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. due to spectators traveling in, and rolling closures on Hwy 9 and Hwy 6. Swan Mountain Road will be closed during this time frame. The Town of Breckenridge suggests that in order to watch the finish in Breckenridge, be where you want to be by 1:00 p.m. On Sunday, check here for race impacts on I70 in the Denver Metro area.
Plan on the typical weekend travel patterns, but expect to have a few more friends on the road as folks come and go for the bike race! On Sunday, expect congestion to begin by 11:30 a.m., to be significant at its peak between 3:00-4:00 and drop off around 8:30 p.m.
Enjoy the cycling in the mountains on Saturday, and in Golden/Denver on Sunday! Stay tuned as SummitCove shares our pictures and staff experiences over the next couple of days both from Keystone and Summit County and from our Golden office!
