Bicycle race over Colorado National Monument on Friday, April 24, 2015
The Annual Maverick Classic bicycle race will cause traffic delays, so alternate route of Little Park Road is advised.
"Because of an afternoon bicycling event, Colorado National Monument visitors and local residents may experience intermittent traffic delays on Friday along a four-mile section of highway from Grand Junction (east) entrance to DS Road near Glade Park.
Two-hundred bicycle riders will be pedaling through the monument from 3 to 5 p.m. that day during the competitive 20-mile Maverick Classic, an annual team collegiate competition.
To avoid congestion and delays, an alternate route would be Little Park Road from Grand Junction to Glade Park.
For more information visit nps.gov/colm or call 858-3617, ext. 360."
