Southern Colorado will have a brush with British royalty this week. Pippa Middleton, sister of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, and sister-in-law of Prince William, will be bicycling through the southern part of the state Monday and Tuesday as part of the Race Across America, a cross-country bicycle relay to raise money and awareness for various charitable causes.
Middleton is part of an 8-person team representing the Michael Matthews Foundation, which helps provide education for children worldwide who otherwise might not have access to it. She is the only female member of the team. The ride began in San Diego on Saturday and will cross the U.S. toward its final destination of Annapolis, Maryland.
Middleton and her team will arrive in Colorado around midday Monday, passing through Cortez, Durango, Pagosa Springs, and South Fork before sunset, then riding through Alamosa, over La Veta Pass, and Trinidad overnight before continuing through Kim and Walsh Tuesday morning on their way toward Kansas. News 5 has created an interactive map showing the estimated times of arrival at the "Time Stations." All times Eastern.
