Free Saturday Night Concert Series, Dillon

7:00 to 9:00pm at the Dillon Amphitheatre, featuring a new Randy Hansen Experience. Born December 8, 1954 in Seattle, Washington Randy is a U.S. guitarist, best known for his emulation of Jimi Hendrix. He clearly has a bit of physical resemblance to Hendrix in his facial features, and carries that resemblance further by emulating such signatures of Hendrix’s style as playing a guitar with his teeth or behind his back. His music appeared in the 1979 film Apocalypse Now, and his debut album was released in 1980 on Capitol Records. Hansen’s high energy guitar work has earned praise from fellow Dutch-American, legendary guitarist, Eddie Van Halen (in Guitar Player magazine), among others. He also was a good friend of the late Stevie Ray Vaughan (writing a song about him called “Texas Twister” from his Old Dogs New Tricks CD. He has toured and played with literally hundreds of famous musicians and groups. http://www.townofdillon.com/Home/Components/Calendar/Event/4074/4?curm=7&cury=2018

Cruise-a-Thong, Glenwood Springs

The Glenwood Springs CRUISE-A-THONg is a race for the Average Jo(e). It is a triathlon designed for the not-so-hardcore athlete in all of us! Like a triathlon, the course consists of three legs; however, ours are a bit more relaxed. The race will commence July 21, 2018 at approximately 11:00am at Veltus Park, Glenwood Springs.

First, a cruiser bike ride (or other self-propelled method of transportation) loop through town from Veltus park.

Next, a thong (that is to say, “flip-flop”) walk down the bike path along the Roaring Fork river.

Lastly, a tube float (or other flotation device) down the Roaring Fork river.

This race rewards being average, so leave your sports drinks and power gels at home! It doesn’t take brute strength, endurance or fortitude, but it does take a sense of humor, adventurous spirits and under-inflated egos. The winner is the “Jo(e)” that posts the most average time. In addition, scoring by somewhat capricious judges may also take into account bonus points for consumption of fattening snacks, gears on the race bike in excess of one, any sandals lost during the race, or any other element that makes a participant more or less average. The course will be closed after 3 hours.

Important Logistics!

Please cruise responsibly! There are no open containers allowed in the race. You MUST wear a personal floatation device (PFD) at all times while floating in the river. We also strongly encourage you to wear a helmet!

Bob Cook Mt Evans Memorial Hill Climb, Idaho Springs

The Bob Cook Memorial Mt. Evans Hill climb is an iconic bicycle race that takes place on the highest paved road in the United States. It was run for the first time in 1962. It was renamed in 1981 in honor of five-time race winner Bob Cook, who died of cancer at the age of 23.

The starting point in Idaho Springs is about 45 minutes east of Summit County, and if you fancy yourself a climber, this is one of the “Big Kahunas” of Hill Climbs. It’s a 6,630′ of climb from an elevation of 7,500′ all the way up to 14,130.’ Climbing between 12,000′ and 14,000′ is dramatically different than climbing from 10,000′ to 12,000′ and consequently has been designated the Colorado State Hill Climb Championship for Senior Men, Women and Junior Men/Women 17-18.
