You might not be able to ride like a competitor in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, but Cured in Boulder is making sure you can eat like one — right down to the shoulder-slung musette bags.
The bags, bearing the logo of the Boulder-based Garmin-Sharp Pro Cycling Team, resemble the musette bags used by U.S. Army infantrymen in World War II. Competitive cyclists are often handed the food-filled bags during races, and the folks at Cured — a cheese and charcuterie shop 1825 Pearl St. in Boulder — is packing them with sandwiches, drinks, chips, cookies and an apple for cycling fans. (The seventh and final leg of the Colorado road race runs Sunday from Boulder to Denver.)
Cured’s musette bags are the brainchild of co-owner Will Frischkorn, a former pro cyclist who competed in the Tour de France. So he knows something about race-day hunger pains.
The musette lunch bags go for $20. For more information, you can check out curedboulder.com or call the shop at 720-389-8096.
