Where to watch Colorado’s 2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge

Stage 6, August 28: Lookout Mountain

Lookout Mountain is a popular ride for locals

On the edge of metro Denver in Golden, the race’s final climb up Lookout Mountain will be a mad house. Bring your bike to the start in downtown Golden and when the riders roll out, head west to the climb.
