Pedal The Plains: Day 2 Preview

The 2012 Pedal The Plains tour kicks off day 2 of 3 on Saturday, with riders trekking 61 miles across the plains of Colorado from Wray to Burlington. While Friday featured an almost entirely downhill route, riders will experience a variety of rolling hills Saturday as they ride through the Arikaree River Basin. Day 2 will feature an elevation gain of 1,483 ft.

This is the first year of the Pedal The Plain Tour. The tour is designed as an educational tour of Colorado's agricultural history, and is geared towards riders of all skill levels. Each stage includes optional detours to educational stops.

Day 1 of the Tour was kicked off by a sendoff from Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper.

Complete details of the celebration of Colorado's cycling culture, including maps and profiles of the route, can be found on the official 2012 Pedal The Plains website.
