Old Man Winter Bike Rally/Run
Feb. 12: Old Man Winter is an epic 50- or 100-km bike ride that happens snow or shine and takes riders on both paved and dirt roads from Lyons to Boulder and beyond. There’s also a 5.8-mile “Best of Lyons” run that’s a “frosty frolic” over trails and pavement. The post-event party features live music, contests and raffle prizes. Register at www.oldmanwinterrally.com.
