Colorado's first women's-only mountain bike race this weekend

Team Yeti Beti and Yeti Cycles are encouraging female mountain bikers to come out for the Beti Bike Bash this weekend on June 12 in Colorado. Racers will have an option to compete solo or with two other friends in a three-woman relay race. The event is being billed as Colorado's first women's-only mountain bike race.

The race course is a four-mile loop with approximately 300 feet of elevation gain per lap featuring rolling, non-technical terrain at Bear Creek Lake Park and views of Red Rocks and the surrounding park. It's mostly singletrack riding with four, short, punchy climbs.

Category 3 beginners will ride two laps, with the category 2 sport riders racing three laps, and the elite/category 1 racers doing five, fast laps.

The event is being billed as family-friendly and includes a kids' race (for six years and younger). A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit Singletrack Mountain Bike Adventure (SMBA), a junior mountain bike program.
