The 26th Annual Sonnenalp of Vail Foundation Casual Bicycle Classic will happen on Saturday, August 20, 2011, rain or shine. The annual event is a fundraiser for the ECO Trails Program and the vision to build a regional trail system to connect Eagle County communities. The ride proceeds also support the Sonnenalp of Vail Foundation.

The fun includes a 38-mile bike ride along the recreational trail from Breckenridge to Vail, bus transportation over to the ride start, entry gift, refreshments on the course, chances to win prizes, and a southwestern style barbeque at the Sonnenalp’s Bully Ranch following the ride. Cyclists can also ride both ways for a 76-mile ride.

Check in at the Sonnenalp begins at 7 a.m. and riders can also check in at 8:45 at the Breckenridge Watson Street parking lot. A shuttle to the Vail Pass summit will also be available for riders interested in the downhill only. A shuttle will also be provided back to Breckenridge after the barbeque.
