On September 13th, thousands of cyclists, including Baseline’s own Steve Batchelder, PE, set off to bike over a hundred miles of Colorado’s flat country for the Denver Post’s Pedal the Plains event. Pedal the Plains is the shorter, flatter counterpart to the Ride the Rockies that takes place in early summer. It takes riders through three different communities throughout the plains and celebrates Colorado’s frontier and agricultural heritage. As with the Ride the Rockies, proceeds go to the Denver Post Community Foundation which is a non-profit that gives back to programs in the host communities. The route is unique each year, and for 2019 it featured the towns of Lamar, Holly, and Springfield.
