Pedal The Plains announces 2017 Route: 6th year of the ride travels through Kersey, Keenesburg and Brush

DENVER — Monday, April 17, 2017 — To say this year’s Pedal The Plains is going to be a wild ride would be an understatement as this year’s route gives cyclists a chance to get close with lions, tigers, bears and other animals that call Keenesburg home. Today Gov. John Hickenlooper, along with Dean Singleton and the Denver Post team, announced that Kersey, Keenesburg, and Brush are the three Colorado towns to be highlighted in this year’s ride presented by Viaero Wireless.  The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg is one of several features along the 177-mile route.

2017 marks the 6th year that the Office of the Governor has partnered with the Denver Post Community Foundation to spotlight Colorado’s rural communities on the three-day ride.

“There’s no better way to connect with our rural communities than by taking time out to ride a bike through them,” said Governor John Hickenlooper. “This tour is the perfect way to bring an economic boost to three of our stellar rural communities while wrapping up the summer’s riding season.”
