FoCo Fondo Bite the Bullet Challenge
The FoCo Fondo Bite the Bullet Challenge is 107 miles long, with a majority of the climbing occurring in the first half. Once you slog through that, you can speedily zoom to New Belgium for a post-ride beer. Be forewarned: there are zero services on this route. You need to pack enough water. The fastest times on this course are with large groups drafting. Once you get north of town, it’s not uncommon to have surprisingly strong winds.
