Best spot to watch the Pro Challenge

Some of the top cyclists are rolling across the state right now! The Pro Challenge started in Aspen on the 19th of this month and wraps up in Denver on the 25th. Racers will also cruise through Beaver Creek, Vail, Loveland and Fort Collins. If you want to catch some of the excitement in town, we have laid out a few places you can see the action.

The race starts and finishes in City Park but crowds are expected to be insanely large, so if you are looking for a quieter spot you can also catch the race along 17th Avenue in uptown, in City Park, along Speer Boulevard and Larimer Square!

Of course it makes the most sense to watch from Larimer Square, closest to your favorite bar!! That way you can grab a few drinks, watch the race and come back to finish the night off! Our friendly bartenders are waiting!
