Pedaling the Poudre™ biking adventures are original and engaging rides that explore Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area’s (CALA) fascinating landmarks and landscapes. The Poudre Heritage Alliance (PHA), the managing entity for CALA, offers a range of guided historical bike tours that are comfortable for individuals or groups of cyclists of all experience levels in both Larimer and Weld Counties. The Poudre River is a great recreation corridor because of the bike path that follows the river for 30 miles from the foothills to the confluence with the South Platte near Greeley.
Ever wondered how water gets from the mountains to the kitchen faucet, or how water laws were formed? During the journey, a trained Heritage Culturalist Volunteer will guide riders to locations where significant early water development took place, and where current water facilities still operate. Participants gain a better understanding of how water is distributed among the various users, and why the prior appropriation system is the rule of the river. Riders will also learn about the history and heritage of the people who first settled in Northern Colorado.
