Mayor Steve Bach and Chief of Staff Steve Cox want to let City employees know that at the discretion of your immediate supervisors, you are encouraged to take a short break on Monday afternoon to enjoy the festivities at the finish line of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge Prologue!
The Local Organizing Committee recommends heading toward the finish line at Colorado and Cascade around 3:20 p.m. on Monday to be there for the final top riders coming through.
This is going to be a great event to showcase Colorado Springs to both visiting cycling fans and a national TV audience. The event will also have a significant positive impact on the local economy. Experience Colorado Springs reports this is typically a very slow weekend for hotels with schools starting back, but this weekend most of the large hotels are sold out!
Hope you can get out and enjoy not only the race on Monday but also the many ancillary events going on this weekend around town brought to you by the Pikes Peak Cycling Society. The calendar of events can be found at www.pikespeakcyclingsociety.org.
