Trinidad, Colo., (Sunday, October 9, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Life Time’s (NYSE: LTH)  The Rad Dirt Fest presented by Wahoo took place this weekend in Trinidad, Colo for its second year, where cyclists ventured off-road to tackle the 165-mile ‘Stubborn Delores’, 99-mile ‘Anteloop’, or 38.5-mile ‘Frijole’ course distances. The courses were in pristine condition with riders noting how they enjoyed the beauty of a perfect Colorado fall day.

The town of Trinidad is an emerging outdoor recreation destination with a friendly, fun, and eclectic vibe that is rich in history and vibrant architecture and features a thriving art scene.
