This week, hundreds of cyclists -- professionals, enthusiasts and casual riders alike -- took to the roads in the foothills of Colorado for the Centurion Colorado
The event is both a race and a ride that features 100-, 50- and 25-mile courses so that participants can choose the level that's best for them. They put the racers at the front of the giant peleton and the folks who are riding just for fun further back. The goal is to get create a mass participation event that celebrates cycling.
We at Insight Designs
are proud to have created the website for Centurion Cycling
, the organization that put on the July 18th event and has two more Centurions scheduled for this summer (Wisconsin
- August 8, 2010 and Canada
- September 18-19, 2010).
We're also excited that our very own Nico Toutenhoofd
took second place (finishing just one second behind winner Jonathan Baker of Boulder) in the 100-mile event, and Insight designer Keith Harper
Congrats to Nico and Keith. And congrats to the staff of Centurion Cycling for putting on a fabulous event. Best of luck in Wisconsin and Canada!
And if you're a cyclist - whether you're a beginner or seasoned amateur - you should consider planning a vacation around one of these events. The Wisconsin event takes place in scenic Dane County.
