Leadville News – September 5
Recreation Round-Up in Leadville Today
As the seasons slowly shift from summer to fall, there’s still plenty of recreation news to cover in Leadville Today. So here’s the latest round-up report when it comes to people who are moving and grooving in North America’s Highest City!
High School Cycling In Leadville on Sunday
The Colorado High School Cycling League’s Cloud City Challenge will be held in Leadville next Sunday, Sept. 9. Hosted by the Leadville Racing high school cycling team, the event will be staged up at the Colorado Mountain College trails.
Since it’s inception in 2009, the league has grow significantly. September’s Leadville challenge will bring hundreds of competitors, crew and family to town.
Cloud City Challenge organizers could use some extra volunteers for this Sunday’s race which would demonstrate Leadville’s commitment to hosting this event that brings in student-athletes and their families from around the state.
While the Leadville Racing Team is comprised of student-athletes from Lake County High School, the team is not officially part of the school district’s athletic department and therefore relies solely on outside donations and contributions of time and resources. While the economic benefit is palpable, the event doesn’t happen without the muscle and time of volunteers. If you’re interested in supporting the team, with time or money, you can also contact the team coaches at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We invite all locals to come out and cheer on not only the local team but all the teams competing,” stated Coach Stacy Kelly who manages the team with her husband Bruce.
