WOW! What the Health, NoCo!
We are blown away by the incredible turnout Wednesday evening at the inaugural NoCo USA Pro Challenge Festival in Fort Collins! Thank you to everyone who came out to support cycling in our community. We weren’t officially counting, but we’re estimating that somewhere between 1,500 and 2,000 people showed up to celebrate the imminent arrival of the USA Pro Challenge this weekend.
Presented by FCBikes, Associates in Family Medicine, and Summitview Church, the event featured live interviews with professional cyclists and sports medicine experts, fresh fare from local food trucks, a bike safety rodeo for the kids, bike tune-ups, and live music from Apple Jam. Plus, we gave away nearly $5,000 in new bikes and gift certificates to 11 lucky winners!
A big shout-out to proVelo, Recycled Cycles, Lee’s Cyclery, Peloton Cycles, Drake Cyclery, Safe Routes to School, Your Group Ride, and BeerAndBikeTours.com. Thanks for helping to make this first-ever NoCo USA Pro Challenge Festival a smashing success!
The vibe was positively electric as we gave away two brand new bikes every half hour during the festival. Congratulations to our big winners!
