Great Rest Stops
Once again, we will have our famous ‘themed’ rest stops with REI doing the first stop and Colorado Springs Park and Rec and the Colorado Springs Cycling Club and Old Town stop at Bancroft Park in Old Colorado City. Look for costumes and more refreshments at each stop.
1. It's fun to ride in the dark! A "surreal experience", as many people have told us.
2. It provides financial support to the Trails and Open Space Coalition (TOSC) to help us advocate for cyclists. In 2008, TOSC worked on the concept of placing sharrows on city streets, developing additional bike lanes and trails in the city, funding additional signage to connect streets to trails and vice-versa, and improving the wayfinding system for cyclists on trails and streets to assist in navigating this rapidly growing community. We are also working to develop a Bicycle Advisory Committee for the city, an official committee with appointed members to provide advice and council on bicyle issues.
3. This is an opportunity for you to support the community and help improve the cycling culture and infrastructure in the Pikes Peak region.
