An annual cycling event in Colorado was twice as nice this year as the Colorado/Wyoming Chapter staff and members drew attention to concrete pavements along the route. 

With the help of Tim Hogan, a project manager with Castle Rock Construction Company, signs were placed along US 287 from Springfield to Lamar, CO, to draw positive attention to concrete pavements along the tour route.  Orange cones and tie bars helped keep the signs in place!  Scott Mueller of ACPA supplied the special “Count on Concrete” racing jerseys.

The Pedal The Plains (PTP) event is sponsored by The Denver Post and the State of Colorado. The event celebrates the agricultural roots and frontier heritage of the Eastern Plains of Colorado. PTP is a three-day tour that averages 50 to 80 miles per day.  The route is unique every year, highlighting different communities, based on requests for proposal and an internal selection process.
