June is Bike Month here in Colorado, and what better time to introduce El Pomar’s new bike fleet?  As part of El Pomar’s sustainability efforts, the bikes will help reduce El Pomar’s carbon footprint when travelling to and from our offices at the Foundation, while also promoting health and wellness among El Pomar Staff.

In other bike-related news, the League of American Bicyclists recently crowned Colorado as the second most bike-friendly state in the US. Colorado was able to move up 20 places in just five years, and Governor Hickenlooper is committed to making the Centennial State No. 1 in the near future.

Later this fall, Colorado will welcome hundred of cyclists who will participate in the second annual Pedal the Plains. Cyclists will ride 172 miles, beginning in the southeastern town Eads and cycling to La Junta. Interested bike enthusiasts can register online.
