Go long.

The Aspen Cycling Club will go long today with the longest road race of the season — and one of the most popular events on the cycling calendar.

The annual Frying Pan Road Race will launch at 6 p.m. today from the start line, approximately 2.5 miles east of Basalt.

Registration will be open at the start, beginning at 5 p.m. today.

Cyclists — club members and nonmembers — are invited to participate.

Turnarounds at different locations will produce different length races for the varying divisions.

The course will take riders toward Ruedi Resrvoir.

For Senior Men A and Vet Men A, the race will be 48 miles with 3,000 feet of climbing.

Cyclists will climb to Ruedi, descend toward Meredith and then continue climbing to a turnaround point about 25 miles from the start at Norry.

All racers will finish near mile marker 4, east of Basalt.

The post-race party will be at Riverside Grill, 181 Basalt Center Circle. The party will begin about 8 p.m.

Ten course marshals and needed for the road race.
