Mount Evans is proud to be part of the Colorado Cycling Summit Series!  Join us for an epic summer of hill climbs!

The ultimate uphill cycling challenge has arrived as three epic Colorado climbs have been combined forces to form one event series. From novices to professionals, the Westbound & Down – Suerte Guanella Hill ClimbBob Cook Memorial Mt. Evans Hill Climb, and The Broadmoor Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb will provide the ultimate high-road experience in America.

Dubbed the Colorado Summit Series, the combination of three climbs will offer the definitive challenge for cyclists. Mount Evans (elevation 14,235′) and Pikes Peak (elevation 14,115′) are world-renowned and the highest paved roads in North America. This series provides cyclists an unparalled opportunity to challenge themselves in three successive races up some of the toughest climbs in the world.
  • The Westbound & Down – Suerte Guanella Hill Climb (June 3) is one of the most scenic routes in all of Colorado.  Riders will leave historic downtown Georgetown and traverse 3,050 ft in just over 11 miles on freshly paved roads. The course winds and twists along with some steeper sections near the finish to make that last surge all the more rewarding. Once again the course will be fully closed to traffic! (
  • The Bob Cook Memorial Mt. Evans Hill Climb (July 21) is an iconic bicycle race that takes place on the highest paved road in the United States. Celebrating it’s 52nd year, it was run for the first time in 1962 and has run consecutively with the exception of 3 times. It was renamed in 1981 in honor of five-time race winner Bob Cook, who died of cancer at the age of 23. (
  • The Broadmoor Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb (August 11) features a non-competitive fun rides that give cyclists of all abilities a truly unique experience on Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain. Created in 2010, this marks the 9th consecutive year of The Broadmoor Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb, an annual event of the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation.
