Several streets around the Central Library will be closed on Saturday and Sunday for the exciting conclusion to the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge. The final stage will take place on Sunday, August 28, 2011 with a free party in Downtown Denver's Civic Center Park. The seven-day, 500-mile race across Colorado will end with live national television coverage on NBC and an estimated Denver crowd of 50,000.
Riders are expected to cross the finish line at approximately 1:30 p.m. on Broadway directly in front of the Colorado State Capitol after completing six loops on a circuit that encompasses portions of Speer Boulevard and Colfax Avenue, continuing through Downtown Denver next to Civic Center Park and then across the finish line on Broadway. Free festivities for spectators, including concerts and bike demos, will begin at 10:00 a.m. on race day in the park. After the awards ceremony, the Flobots will perform a free concert for all spectators in Civic Center Park.
