PTP Log without Viaero

What does that mean for our town?  We will provide the Mayor Kellerhuis with Governor Hickenlooper.start/finish lines for the ride, parking, camping, and hotel stays for the riders, a community bbq, entertainment for both Thursday night and the following Sunday after the ride.  It also means 1200 riders will be coming to Kersey and we need your help to show them our way of life.  They will be riding our roads so please be aware and be cautious.    Check out this route, it starts in Kersey, makes its way to Keenesburg, where they will spend a night enjoying the sweet life.  On Saturday, September 16th they head to Brush!, where they will spend another night before making their way through towns like  Orchard, Weldona, and finishing in Kersey.  There will be educational stops throughout the route (riders will be able to tour The Wild Animal Sanctuary as part of the route...how cool), some they will pull over and take a  break while they learn about that particular stop and other will be signs informing them of what that area is about.
