Last Friday we hosted approximately 15 law enforcement officers from various entities along the front range. We began with a presentation of Colorado statutes and city ordinances that affect cycling on public roads, and I used specific case examples that I've handled as actual real world evidence of the problems that can arise when laws are not correctly interpreted or enforced. After our morning session all of the participants took to the open roads in 3 group rides: beginner, intermediate and veteran. Everyone had a blast, especially those who took advantage of the Cannondale demo fleet!
After the ride we enjoyed some healthy lunches from Mad Greens, we raffled off some prizes and we wrapped up the silent auction for items donated to raise money for the Police Unity Tour. We also got to hear from some of the PUT riders and hopefully we recruited new riders for the 2015 tour!
Overall we had a wonderful time and received very positive feedback. This will certainly be an annual tradition moving forward! Many thanks to all of the officers who took part!
Here are some of our favorite photos of the event:
