The Denver Post Pedal The Plains

Registration is opening soon for The Denver Post Pedal The Plains!

Pedal The Plains is Colorado’s end-of-season cycling bash, capping off our world-class cycling event calendar mid-September. A true, two-wheeled celebration of Colorado’s Eastern Plains, Pedal The Plains includes barbecues and on-route tours of working farms and historic sites along with nightly live music and entertainment. Proceeds from Pedal The Plains benefit The Denver Post Community Foundation in support of Colorado FFA and Colorado 4-H.

Pedal the Plains riders

This annual cycling event celebrates the agricultural roots and frontier heritage of the Eastern Plains of Colorado. The ride creates an opportunity for cyclists from the Front Range and beyond to learn about farming and ranching, while experiencing the culture, history and landscape of Colorado’s high plains. The Tour incorporates interactive on-route experiences by staging rest stops on farms, posting educational points of interest and serving community meals composed of locally sourced food.

Awesome volunteer at Pedal The Plains

In addition to farm fresh meals, entertainment will also include a beer garden and local flair from country bands to existing harvest festivals and county fairs. Host communities benefit economically through associated fundraising initiatives and the influx of riders and their families. Vehicles for economic gain include, but are not limited to, food and beverage sales, lodging, retail and entertainment.

Route

Stay tuned! The route will be announced soon.

The Cause

Pedal The Plains is a Signature Event of The Denver Post Community Foundation and helps support nonprofit agencies that work to improve the lives of Coloradans in the towns hosting the Tour. Pedal The Plains and The Denver Post Community Foundation Grant Program allow us to provide a $3,000 grant to a deserving organization in each host community along with a $7,000 grant to Colorado 4-H and Colorado FFA Foundation. The Grant Program funds nonprofit organizations that provide services for low-income children and youth through community programs that support recreation and/ or youth education.

  • We’ve heard from a lot of #BicycleColorado members and supporters lately about the joy they’ve felt while riding their bikes in recent days! Our next few posts will feature some of their stories. This one comes from Jenny and Stan S.: “We went with 2 neighbors to Utah prior to the lockdown for solitary bike and hiking. Photos of blue/green MTB trail in Dead Horse State Park. The trails were empty and dry. The visitor center had too many people for my comfort. Later Utah visitor centers closed. Mercifully, most  bathrooms remained open.

We traveled with bleach spray, wipes, gloves, buffs, raincoats (to wear indoors!). We ate inside our car and motel room. PBJ and frozen turkey pot pies.”
