Pedal The Plains Colorado Bike Tour

"The race for the rest of us," Colorado's Pedal The Plains is a light-hearted September road-cycling trek through the state's swaying, expansive eastern plains with plenty of fun on and off the bike for cyclists of all skill levels.

After the success of the first tour in 2012, Pedal The Plains makes a splash every year with a new route, educational activities and entertainment.

Pedal The Plains embraces a flatter, more leisurely pace, where stopping to sample the bounty of the area's farmers' markets, crafts fairs, historic trails and educational farming techniques, as well as concerts, beer gardens, county fairs and a family fun ride are all part of the experience. For those feeling hardier, there's even a scenic century ride.
