Giddy on up to Lions Park

2018 Golden Giddyup mountain bike race and expo take place Sept. 16

Posted

Although registration has closed to race in the 2018 Golden Giddyup, the community is invited to cheer on riders and celebrate trail stewardship during the event's day-long expo on Sept. 16 at Lions Park, 1300 10th St., in Golden.

The race will start in waves beginning at 8 a.m. An awards ceremony will take place 3:30-4:30 p.m.

The expo kicks off at 10 a.m. and goes till 6 p.m. It will feature vendors — including the Golden Giddyup's sponsors with bikes, gear and information on outdoor recreation — and a Kids Zone with a kids' bike course provided by Avid4Adventure. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the beer garden and lunch will be available. There will be food trucks, spirit tastings from LAWS Whiskey House and New Terrain Brewing Company will be serving its Giddyup Trail Ale.

A bluegrass concert will take place 1-5 p.m. Live music will be performed by Rapidgrass, Banshee Tree and Chain Station.

It is recommended to park in a public lot in downtown Golden and walk or bike to Lions Park. The streets adjacent to the park will only be accessible to the neighborhood's residents and will be closed off to non-local traffic all day on Sept. 16.

The Golden Giddyup mountain bike race and expo is a way to recognize and highlight the 80-some volunteers who put in nearly 2,500 hours of trail work on Jeffco Open Space trails. The expo is free and family family-friendly. Learn more at http://goldengiddyup.com/.
