Venus de Miles

Each year, Venus de Miles brings more than a thousand women together for sisterhood, community, and a great time, all in support of Greenhouse Scholars as we cultivate extraordinary leaders to change low-income families and communities.  Multiple course options welcome women of all shapes, sizes, and athletic abilities.  Participants enjoy a supportive, encouraging atmosphere and a finish line festival featuring complimentary lunch, cocktails, spa services, a unique vendor expo, and lots of fun. Philanthropy has surely never felt so good!

  • #BicycleColorado staffers spent part of the afternoon with @denverparksrec experiencing riding on adaptive bikes, including hand cycles and recumbent bikes. We are firm believers in #experientiallearning, and we were grateful to gain some first-hand knowledge about this kind of riding. Plus, it was really fun!
  • Volunteer with us for a few hours at @veloswap on Saturday, November 2 and help us make our 10,000 member movement even stronger! Click the link in our bio to sign up for your shift. 
Let’s bring more members to the movement and further strengthen our voice. Our goal is 200 new members in one BIG day. See you there! #bicyclecolorado
