Estes Parks own unique day to celebrate cycling of all kinds is coming up on June 26. “Bike Estes Day” is a one day cycling celebration that coincides with Colorado’s “Bike to Work” day and combines that with the “Costume Bike Parade” and the “Performance Park Bike Party.”
The day begins at 6 a.m. at the Estes Park Visitors Center where Bike to Work festivities are held. There will be free coffee and breakfast items as well as a bike maintenance stand and kids strider bike course provided by the Mountain Shop. Bike to work goes until 9 a.m.
At 5:30 p.m., decorating festivities begin for the “Costume Bike Parade” at the Visitors Center. There will be bike decorating materials available, but don’t forget the costumes! The Town of Estes Parks own police department will be shutting down traffic for this parade, so we need to give the locals and visitors alike something fun to see. Prizes will be given out for great costumes. The parade will start at 6 p.m.
The parade will end at the Performance Park Bike Party. Live music, food trucks and beer and non-alcoholic drink vendors will be waiting for the parade participants. There will be games for the kids and time to mingle with friends and family.
To learn more and to kick off the summer cycling season, join the Estes Park Cycling Coalition for a general meeting and pot luck at Stanley Park, 6 p.m. on June 5. We will provide updates on the Bike Park, and other fun summer cycling events.
