Boulder County cyclist Rebecca Johnson has, for the past 19 years, expressed her passion for long-distance pedaling during the Tour de France by logging a good chunk of the famous race’s mileage on her own local mission. A personal challenge, to be sure, but she also has seen it as an opportunity to raise awareness for community causes. Her yearly endeavor has earned the moniker “BadAss”, and this year is no exception.
This year, Rebecca is riding 1,078 miles in 21 days in honor of her friend who has recently been diagnosed with incurable Carcinoid Syndrome.
Tour de BadAss 2020 will run July 4th - July 26th. The tour routes run all over the front range including Vail Pass, Tennessee Pass, Pikes Peak, and many many more.
This year's participants include an 11-year old aspiring competitive cyclist, an Army veteran, a Navy veteran, a personal trainer, a professional cyclist, a Boulder journalist, and more.
