Great news! We’ve been lucky enough to partner up with green business HopOn Bike Taxis to host a pre-event bike ride from the CSU campus to The Lincoln Center! The parade will be a fun, eco-friendly way to gather before the conference and arrive together! The parade will start at 1:00 p.m. at the CSU Oval and end at the event.
Here’s the schedule:
1:00 p.m. – Arrive at the south side of the Colorado State University Oval to gather with other riders, pick up cool giveaways and raffle tickets for bigger prizes, and get ready to head out!
1:15 p.m. – The parade will be led by former Colorado governor Bill Ritter, a TEDxCSU speaker and Director of CSU’s Center for the New Energy Economy.
1:30 p.m. – When the last wave has arrived, Mr. Ritter will draw raffle tickets and hand out prizes with plenty of time to get settled before the conference starts at 2:00 p.m. Extra bike racks have been generously provided by The City of Fort Collins, so ample bike parking will be available!
Prizes and giveaways include bike lights, bells, leg straps, and other fun shwag! Check out the event page on Facebook to confirm your attendance, chat with other riders, and get updates!
If you can’t make it to the parade, we still encourage you to ride your bike to the event as car parking is limited near The Lincoln Center and biking is a great way to go green!
