On Monday, April 17, the 2017 Denver Post Pedal The Plains Bicycle Tour route was announced at the State Capitol by Governor Hickenlooper and Tour Director, Renee Wheelock. This year’s ride will take place September 15-17 and travel through Kersey, Keenesburg, and Brush, Colorado.
This one-of-a-kind annual cycling event began in 2012 and is produced in partnership with the Governor’s Office. It 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!
