Sugarloaf Loop Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This ride is for hard-core road bikers who crave endless steep climbs and who don’t mind a little dirt. Sugarloaf Road is an interesting, less-crowded alternative to the big canyons. It’s also a much steeper alternative to the big canyons.
There are gazillions of Sugarloaf Mountains around the country, but the band formerly known as Chocolate Hair, the band behind the international radio superhit “Green-Eyed Lady,” named itself after this one. This one right here, looming over Boulder County. They can never take that away from us!
Save that info for the trivia-contest semifinals, and save this ride for a day when you’re feeling particularly badass. Featuring some sketchy traffic, super-steep climbs, dirt roads, and flood-ravaged canyons, this loop is not only strenuous but adventurous. It’s a serious challenge best suited to experienced riders. It’s also an amazing and beautiful ride."
