Ride Garfield County winners to be announced at event tonight

CLEER and Garfield Clean Energy invite everyone to attend the wrap-up celebration of the successful 2016 Ride Garfield County bike and bus riding campaign.

The event is set for 5:30-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the Glenwood Canyon Brewing Co., downstairs meeting room, 402 Seventh St. in Glenwood Springs, with light refreshments served.

Steve Novy, a CLEER board member, will announce the winning teams and individuals in the bike and bus riding competitions.

Two speakers, Tanya Allen, transportation manager for the city of Glenwood Springs, and Mike Pritchard, executive director of the Roaring Fork Mountain Biking Association, will comment on how our region is becoming more bike and bus friendly.

Allen will also discuss how bike and bus riding can help ease traffic congestion during the Grand Avenue Bridge construction project.

The event also includes a drawing of names from the registered Ride Garfield participants for prizes donated by local businesses.
