Glen Cove is approximately 5.5 miles/9.7 km from the Start Line. This is the first Rest Area of the ride. Many find Glen Cove to be the make-it-or-break-it decision point. At this point you are not quite half-way to the top, and the steeper climbs and less oxygen levels are still to come. This may be a convenient place to take a longer break and decide whether you want to beat the mountain or let it beat you.
IF you make the decision to abort your ride, be sure to ride downhill on the right-hand side of the highway to avoid cyclists headed up the mountain. There may be riders coming uphill so watch your speed and don't overheat your brakes. There will also be event vehicles on the road. The Pikes Peak Highway will open at 9:00 am to tourist traffic, so be careful.
There will be snacks, a hydration station, restrooms and emergency communications at Glen Cove. Be sure to thank those organizations and companies that support this event at this location.Hydration Station, Snack Station
