The Denver Post Pedal The Plains – POSTPONED TO 2021

Save the date to join the tour in 2021!

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’re thrilled to see so many people out enjoying (and often rediscovering the joy of) riding a bike right now, and we’re asking ALL bicyclists to do their part to prevent the spread of #covid19 by wearing a mask or other face covering when out for a ride. Doing so keeps you, your loved ones, those around you, and all Coloradans safer while helping reduce stress on our medical system. If you still need a mask, click the link in our bio to pre-order one now and support our advocacy work! Thanks so much to everyone who has already purchased, and to @primalwear for supporting our efforts over the years. Ride on.
  • #BicycleColorado volunteers and staff members spent time today helping @denverurbangardens and @denverfoodrescue deliver “Grow a Garden” food boxes to home-bound families in Denver—via bike! Supporting our community on two wheels makes for a great way to spend a sunny day. Many thanks to our friends @ddchen47, David M., and @juggernautcargo for your help! Head to denverfoodrescue.org or dug.org to learn more about these great local organizations. #rideyourbike
  • Tonight the #BicycleColorado team celebrated Stacey, our outgoing Development Director, with a virtual happy hour. Stacey has been an absolute rockstar for BC. We’re sad to see her leave, but thrilled for her as she heads out on a new adventure (hopefully in the #BikeAdvocacy space!) in North Carolina. Please join us in wishing her well!
