Colorado Adventure Guides will be hosting bike clinics at the event.

Fundraiser for Flight For Life – Summit County Program
Flight For Life is not for profit transport for patients in need of critical care. Flight For Life relies on giving and fundraising for a large part of their operation. This is an event that everyone can come and support through participation, cheering on the kids, bidding on silent auction items and in-kind giving. You don’t need to have a “Strider Rider” to come and make a difference.
There will be a silent auction in the Frisco Adventure Park Day Lodge with wonderful items to bid on from your favorite local retail businesses, restaurants and services.
Guess How Many Skittles
A “Guess How Many Skittles Jar” is located at Stork & Bear Co. and will be at the race on August 17 for entries. The winner will receive one night lodging and a four pack of tickets to the Great Wolf Lodge Water Park in Colorado Springs. Guesses cost $5.00 for one guess or $20.00 for 5 guesses.
