Silly Name, Great Event • No Mountain High Enough 

Silly Name, Great Event

On Saturday, August 11, the Trail Palooza bike event strikes out from the Bogus Basin Lodge at 9 a.m. and runs until 5 p.m. Trail Palooza is an all-day event for beginning, intermediate, advanced and even non-riders.

At 10 a.m., the lift will be open and $10 gets you an all-day ticket.

And there's plenty of fun for the kids. From noon-3 p.m., they can participate in riding skill tests, bike and helmet safety checks, helmet giveaways and a kid-safe bicycle rodeo.

You can purchase a meal ticket while you're up there and from noon-3 p.m. dig in to Kobe beef burgers and Clif bars and wash it all down with a New Belgium beer.

At 1 p.m., there will be a ribbon-cutting for the new Shaffer Butte Trail System and interested riders can explore the trails in groups or take self-guided rides down the new routes.

From noon-5 p.m., enjoy live music from the Rockafellas and Marcus Eaton.

Proceeds from the day's events go to maintenance of the Shaffer Butte Trail System.
