Mountain bike race will close trails at Lake Pueblo State Park Saturday
Spring is a great time to ride the trails at Lake Pueblo State Park. Bud don't head down there Saturday unless you're planning to compete against some of the best riders in the state.
The Voodoo Fire mountain bike race returns to the park for a second year. Last year's inaugural race drew hundreds of riders, and Colorado Springs riding legend Chris Carmichael came in second.
Because of the race, most trails will be closed to the riding public Saturday. Officials expect 500 riders to take part in the event, which has four races, from 12 miles to 66 miles.
From Colorado Parks and Wildlife:
All South Shore trails will be closed from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition to the trail closure, the Cottonwood day-use area and half of the overflow parking at the South Ramp will be closed to public access. There will be temporary/intermittent road closures of Juniper Road, from the Arkansas River to South Marina Road, and parts of South Marina road from 8:30 to 9:15 a.m. to accommodate the start of the race.
