On a cloudy Sunday a dozen relaxed racers made their way from Summit Lake to New Denver

Racing against the wind

At first there were only six bicycles for the Summit Lake Race, part of the New Denver May Days.

At first there were only six bicycles with their riders at the Summit Lake rest area on the morning of Sunday, May 20 for the Summit Lake Race, part of the New Denver May Days. The early morning sun had disappeared behind a wall of grey, and without it, the temperature dropped to chilly.

But the change didn’t deter the dozen or so cyclists who had gathered for the ride. Ages ranged from Thomson Harris, 13, to veteran rider Jack Tees, 85, and the variety of bikes was just as broad too. In no time at all, the pack was on the road, ready to go. After letting a vintage car pass, and a casual call out to start, they were off.
