The Urban Assault Ride is funky bike scavenger hunt that involves street smart riding, obstacle courses, and a huge after party. Mental muscle is just as important as bike skills as teams of 2 choose their own course to checkpoints around the city.
The event is well known for its checkpoint obstacle courses where physical and mental obstacle courses must be completed before moving on. Kinda like American Gladiators with a demented cycling twist. Some checkpoints are listed prior to the event, others must be found during the event.
Participants can be 7 - 100 years - anybody can do it. Teams will ride a total distance of 20-25 miles (depending on the city). The first team to hit all of the checkpoint and cross the finish line wins! Then the party begins with free New Belgium beer and lots more two-wheeled shenanigans!
Prizes for the top 3 teams in each division, including 2 limited edition New Belgium Bikes to the overall winning team.
