There are a half dozen triathlons in Boulder each summer. The bike portion of each overlap to some degree, as all of them are on the roads north of Boulder. We will ride two loops that are the Peak Tri route, followed by the Sprint Loop. We meet at Tom Watson Park, which is a few miles north on 63rd from the Foothills Parkway. The first loop is 26 miles and begins by heading south on 63, east on the Diagonal, to Lee Hill. We then begin the humbling climb up Old Stage Road, but then we are rewarded with a fast descent into Left Hand Canyon.
