Lookout Mountain. 1,300feet elevation gain. 4.5 miles long. (or so…) It shadows over Golden, Colorado and is a common ride for many cyclists on the front range trying to get close to Tom Danielson’s record of 16:02 minutes. When the USA Pro Cycling Challenge came over Lookout this summer, it was like Colorados own Alpe d Huez! The crowds came out to cheers on the pros, and the pros literally flew up the classic climb! While Versus and NBC Sports failed to show the climb on TV, this Youtube video shows a glimpse of what it was like near the top!
