DIRECTIONS / PARKING
Parking is tricky with so many of us congregating in a small town. However, here are some tips to make your parking fast and pain-free. We strongly encourage you to carpool!
From Denver: Exit 181 (Plum Creek Parkway) accesses the largest number of parking spots around the Fair Grounds. Parking attendants and Law Enforcement will be waiting for you at the bottom of this exit to direct you to the closest available parking. Exit #182 (Wilcox St.) is also a great option to find parking downtown. There is a wide variety of hastle-free parking options scattered throughout the town to spread out the steady stream of cars. Please be considerate of the local merchants that are open and only park in designated areas. You may have to ride your bike up to a mile to get to the start/registration area. Please see the map below for directions to the designated areas.
From Colorado Springs: Your best option when coming form the south is to exit northbound I25 on exit #174 (Tomah Road) and continue north on the I25 Frontage road on the east side of the Highway. Just before entering Castle Rock, you will see a large parking area just north of Medved Ford (lot E).
Downtown Castle Rock Parking: Exit #182 is a good option to find parking downtown. PLEASE be considerate of the local merchants that are open and ONLY park in designated areas. Cars parked in the posted NO PARKING areas will be towed.
