"We created the Gold Rush Bike Rally to showcase the amazing riding and history that Boulder, CO is known for. The courses were created to combine lots of different terrain, beautiful views, and exciting descents," said Josh Kravetz, President of Adventure Fit. "It pairs perfectly with our winter event, the Oskar Blues Old Man Winter Rally."

More than 1000 people are expected at this year's Gold Rush Bike Rally.
