From the event Web site.
Finally, a race/rec ride from the Pikes Peak toll gate to the summit. Summit Cycling Promotions has it lined up for Aug. 29.
This from the Assault on the Peak Web site: "Summit Cycling Productions, in cooperation with the City of Colorado Springs, The City of Manitou Springs, the U.S. Forest Service and The Pikes Peak Highway, are proud to introduce the inaugural version of “Assault on the Peak”, a cycling event to the top of Pikes Peak. This event will be a timed, non-competitive event for the first 1,500 riders wishing to challenge the most famous mountain in America.
The Assault is a fully supported event giving a limited number of cyclists the chance to tackle the hardest climb in North America. The road is being rented for the day and will be entirely closed to none event automobiles."
Better start training now. The event might be called Assault of the Peak, but the mountain is famous for fighting back.
