Monday, August 26th – Thursday, August 29th, 2024 Register now!  Only 3 double-occupancy rooms left for this Eastern Colorado Plains bike tour! Have you ridden any Colorado Eastern Plains areas? Maybe the now-defunct Pedal the Plains? Or not? This announces the out-of-town-tour of “Sterling Silver” where you’ll ride country roads encased among open fields of wheat and corn and other crops, explore historic places and museum(s) in Sterling, stroll along its Main Street of shops and ice cream parlors, and partake in local eateries. This tour is rated Fun/Intermediate; our tour group of 10-12 participants should be independent riders capable of doing their own tire and bicycle repairs, if needed. Rides are loops or out-and-back and consist of up to 40 round-trip miles; all rides start at hotels. Each day at ride’s end gives you time for yourself to rest, swim, and/or explore the town. You’ll need to be comfortable riding these types of routes: lightly travelled, shoulderless, two-lane county roads; busier access roads needed to connect the back roads of the plains; and a couple of dirt/gravel roads that extend for several miles (only one day). The tour is a “Pay As You Go” and is fixed-based in Sterling, Colorado. The Leader has saved a block of rooms for DBTC members to reserve their own room. The lodging is in a comfortable hotel that serves complimentary hot & cold breakfasts and includes an indoor swimming pool/sauna, outdoor deck, and rooms (double occupancy) with two queen beds, mini fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, and free WIFI. You may choose to RV/camp elsewhere on your own and will be expected to promptly meet the group each day at the hotel for riding. Pay As You Go is where participants are responsible for reserving and paying directly to the hotel for their own lodging arrangements. They will also be responsible for their own meals and other tour expenses.   $40 DBTC fee and registration forms will be collected by tour leader. Contact Marilyn Choske, or 303-905-8510.
