We were back to America The Beautiful Park for the final day - Stage 4: Cheyenne Canyon. Same start line, but this time riders headed towards Cheyenne Canyon and Capt'n Jacks before returning to receive their finishers glass and a non-alcoholic beer from Athletic Brewing Company. After cooling down, everyone met up at Goat Patch Brewing for the APEX Awards & After Party co-hosted by Springs Wealth Group.
