Considering the popularity of biking in the Grand Valley, it's only right that we have an entire month dedicated to this popular western Colorado activity.

Grand Valley Bike Month Features Special Events and Rides

May is Grand Valley Bike Month, featuring a number of special events and rides for bikers of all ages and skill levels. It's a great opportunity to connect with other people who have similar interests and make some new friends in Grand Junction and neighboring communities.

The month will include the annual Bike to Work/School Day,  the grand opening of the new Wolfpack Bike Park, friendly competitions, special business deals, clinics, a party, and a film fest.

If you are new to biking, this is a great time to "get your feet wet." You can learn where to go with your bike, join up with others, as well as learn how to take care of your machine.
