Pedal The Plains; It’s a Wild Ride!

Saddle up! It’s going to be a wild ride. The 6th annual Pedal The Plains Bicycle Tour is Sept 15th-17th. The Tour includes a 3-day Tour, Century Ride and Family Fun Ride.

Pedal The Plains (PTP) is an initiative of The Denver Post and the State of Colorado. 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. 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. Unique to this year; registration includes admission into the Wild Animal Sanctuary on day one!

PTP is a 3 day tour from September 15 – 17, which averages 50 to 70 miles per day and will visit the host communities of Keresey, Keenesburg and Brush! On Saturday, September 16 the event includes one- day rider offerings such as a family fun ride for novice cyclists in Brush, and a century option for seasoned riders from Keenesburg to Brush! This event is the end of the cycling season bash and garners the attention of many.

Proceeds from Pedal The Plains benefit The Denver Post Community Foundation in support of Future Farmers of America and Colorado 4-H.

Don’t miss the party on the plains, sign up online by Aug 27th!
