3 days, 200 miles

Colorado's Electric Cooperatives will ride the Pedal the Plains bike tour, an annual three-day ride across Colorado's high plains. A celebration of Colorado cycling culture, this landmark event commemorates the heart of western agriculture and shares the beauty and resources of our great state.

Our electric co-ops help sponsor the tour as well as their own bike team, Powering the Plains. Booths sharing information about electric co-ops will be at various points on the tour as an opportunity to educate people about the cooperative model and keeping electricity affordable.

Why we ride

Our team rides for Energy Outreach Colorado, which provides financial assistance to Colorado's neediest families and seniors for their home energy needs. Colorado's Electric Cooperatives have always been an integral part of the communities they serve. Pedal the Plains is another opportunity to support our members who may need help heating their homes.
