The Colorado Tour hits the trail with Mountain Bikers in Lyons, Colorado

The Colorado Tour got rolling on August 30 with a program for the Lyons High School Mountain Biking Club. A cohort of 26 students and teachers braved a tempestuous Colorado rain shower to hear the Leave No Trace message and participate in the inaugural running of the Leave No Trace mountain bike relay.

Two teams competed on the ½ mile course which tested their skills for spotting and collecting trash on the trail, proper yielding to hikers and other mountain bikers, and cat hole techniques and practices. It was, of course, a memorable afternoon and a terrific way to begin the Colorado Tour. Many thanks to our host, Pat Bacalis, of Lyons Middle and High School.
