As many of you may know, June is Bike Month in Colorado Springs. Says the Trails and Open Spaces Website:
Bike Week is a statewide event where all major front range cities participate. In Colorado Springs the event has outgrown just a week and is called BIKE MONTH. Presented by Metro Rides and organized by a volunteer planning committee, Bike Month is a collaborative effort on the part of area employers, individuals, not-for-profits and cycling shops to encourage bicycling, commuting and the open spaces and trails that make them possible.
Metro Rides and the Trails and Open Space Coalition’s goal is to promote bicycling for recreation and commuting purposes in a safe and fun manner.
This past weekend brought the events of the month to a crescendo (some sanctioned, some coincidental and some not-so-sanctioned) with the Starlight Spectacular, The World Naked Bike Ride, an ad hoc Bike Polo event on Sunday and the opening of the new Carmichael Training Systems in the Round House building on 21st Street and Hwy 24.
With all these events and the recent “silver-level” Bicycle Friendly Communities Award, it would seem that Colorado Springs may be finding its natural place among other bike-friendly cities like Portland, Oregon.
Here are a couple of slide shows from this past weekend’s events:
