Local events happening this weekend in the Pikes Peak area


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Saturday, August 13, will have two significant events for cyclists in Colorado springs. Both are expected to impact road usage.

The Pikes Peak Highway will delay opening to the summit until 9 a.m. due to the Broadmoor Cycle to the Summit.

Cycle to the Summit is a USA Cycling sanctioned race up Pikes Peak. Created in 2010, this year marks the 13th consecutive year of the race.

Garden of the Gods Park will close at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday for the Starlight Spectacular. The event is open to cyclists, runners, and walkers.

According to the events page, participants can put on their favorite glow-in-the-dark gear, light up their bikes, and ride or run a bike loop or a 5K run/walk loop. The event will include “rest stops,” and other random entertainment.
