Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

It’s never too early to start thinking of spring cycling.

Registration opened Monday for the 2011 Ride for the Pass, the annual fundraiser for the Independence Pass Foundation. The ride up the pass will be Saturday, May 21. It is part of the Aspen Cycling Festival, which also includes the Aspen Cycling Criterium, a race around a nearly 1-mile course with 10 curves in the heart of Aspen. The criterium race will be on Sunday.

The ride starts at the winter gate east of Aspen on Highway 82 and ascends 10 miles to the Independence ghost town. The cost is $40 for individuals and $70 for families. The prices go up on May 1 to $50 and $70, respectively.

Competitive cyclists will launch at 9 a.m. while the start for recreational riders is at 9:15 a.m. A post-ride party will be held at Sky Hotel at 1 p.m.

Online registration is available at http://www.Active.com or via a link at http://www.independencepass.org. The registration will be limited to 600 participants, so it is advised to sign up in advance.

The cutline for a story in Saturday’s Post Independent was incorrect. The story, “Fulford Cave to be studied for bat disease,” erroneously stated when cavers were in Fulford Cave. The image is a file photo that was taken in July of 2010. The cave is now closed to the public.
