Dolores Rotary Club is sponsoring the 16th annual Escalante Days Mountain Bike Race on Saturday, August 9, 2014. The race will start at 9:50 am at Fifth and Central in Dolores, CO. There will be cash prizes for winners in the Expert and Single Speed race categories and prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in Beginner and Sport race classes. Those beating the Expert course record will be awarded a cash prize, as will the first rider to cross the cattle guard at the top of the hill. Proceeds from the race go to benefit Dolores Rotary’s youth, community and international service projects. Volunteers are needed. Contact Laurel Rematore at Lrematore@sti.net or 970-529-4642 if you can help. Register online at www.active.com (search for “Escalante Days” or “Dolores”) by August 6th or on race day from 8:00 am to 9:00 am in front of the Dolores Medical Office. Pre-registration entry fees are $35 and day of race entry fees are $45. Course maps and additional information are available at www.clubrunner.ca/dolores.
We will also offer a free children’s Bicycle Rodeo after the Children’s Parade the evening before the race, on Friday, August 8, behind the Dolores Medical Center. The rodeo teaches bicycle safety skills in a fun and safe manner. Participants will receive free bike helmets and will be entered in a drawing to win a new bicycle!
