Each week, I take a look at events and happenings in The Valley and choose three things that look adventurous from Aspen down to Glenwood Springs. Here are my picks of the week: Ride for the Pass, Bike Park Competition in Carbondale, and to top off the weekend, head over to the Riviera Supper Club and Piano Bar in Glenwood for their Great Gatsby Murder Mystery Supper Party.
Aspen: Ride For The Pass @ Independence Pass
Saturday, May 20 @ 10 am
The Ride for the Pass is a recreational ride and road bike race up Highway 82 toward Independence Pass that allows riders to enjoy this beautiful Scenic Byway BEFORE it is opened to cars for the season (The Pass is scheduled to open Thursday, May 25). The Ride benefits the Independence Pass Foundation’s restoration work on the Pass.
There are two races and it’s a fun time for the entire family.
