Come pedal along the Poudre bike trail while learning about the history and heritage of the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area. As one of only 55 National Heritage Areas in the country, participants will discover what makes this river corridor so special as Heritage Culturalist volunteers guide them along a four hour, 13+ mile biking tour of historic and natural sites. This tour will begin at River Bluffs Open Space in Windsor and finish in Western Greeley – approximately 13 miles one way or a 26 mile round trip. This event is recommended for more experienced riders, therefore we recommend bringing your own bike for the tour.
- General tour topics:
- Early history and settlement of Windsor/Greeley (e.g. the Union Colony)
- The Poudre River’s importance as it relates to Western Water Law
- Water management systems that were developed and/or utilized along the Poudre River
- Modern happenings along the Poudre River corridor including ecological restoration at Natural Area sites and new storage/diversion projects
We look forward to riding with you soon! And thank you for supporting the Poudre Heritage Alliance and the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area! For more information about PHA’s Pedaling the Poudre program, click here.
