What attendees say about the Colorado Bicycle Summit

Must-Go Event

“No organization in Colorado brings such a diverse set of cycling people together for 2 days of learning and sharing. It should be your annual ‘Must go’ event!”

~Kris Thompson, Founder, 303cycling.com

Valuable Meeting of the Minds

“The Colorado Bicycle Summit is a valuable meeting of the minds for the Colorado cycling community. They are mindful to include road and MTB aspects, and are mindful of the state’s regional pockets and interests.”

Who’s Who of the Cycling World

“It was like being surrounded by the who’s who in the cycling world. It gave us (the little club) a feel of what it would be like to achieve greatness. The potential to grow and impact the communities which we live in was inspiring.”
