Get a sneak peek of Independence Pass, one of Colorado’s most scenic mountain byways, before it’s open to cars for the season during this road bike race. Recreational riders can enjoy a two-mile route ending at Weller Lake while competitive cyclists will continue up Highway 82 to finish at the Independence ghost town. A party at the St. Regis Hotel in downtown Aspen follows the jaunt. Proceeds benefit the Independence Pass Foundation’s restoration work. Sat 10 a.m.
