We are a group of citizens, cyclists and motorists working toward significantly increasing active transportation in the Grand Valley.
We seek to collaboratively engage public and private stakeholders through outreach, education and fun, in order to increase bicycle accessibility and connectivity, improve cycling infrastructure, advance bicycling and traffic safety, and encourage enforcement.
The ceremony will begin at 11:30 a.m.,
lasting approximately one hour and feature guest speakers from the
Colorado Riverfront Trail Project partner organizations and Great
Outdoors Colorado. Light refreshments will be served.
Bring your walking shoes or bicycle, the trail will be open to the public for non-motorized travel after the ceremony.
Guests from the press are welcome to arrive 15 minutes early for equipment set up.
