Pedal the Plains

September 14 to September 16

Pedal The Plains (PTP) is a signature event of The Denver Post Community Foundation and an initiative of The Denver Post and the State of Colorado. This Tour strives to strengthen community ties by fostering individual connections and fueling economic development by bringing tourism to the eastern plains, and giving locals the opportunity to educate others on their town and businesses. This one-of-a-kind annual cycling event began in 2012 and celebrates the agricultural roots and frontier heritage of Colorado’s Eastern Plains. Described by the Governor as “a ride for the rest of us”, Pedal The Plains seeks to engage riders of all abilities, from seasoned cyclists to first-time riders, in an educational and recreational experience. The 2017 Tour will highlight three unique and charming communities: Kersey, ‘A Great Place To Grow A Family’; Keenesburg the ‘Home of 500 Happy People and a Few Soreheads’; and Brush! ‘Homegrown Happiness!’.
