Biking to Planet Bluegrass
The area around Lyons has some of the best bicycling on Colorado's Front Range. For the past few years, several inspiring groups have organized rides of varying lengths to RockyGrass and the Folks Festival. Some of these rides incorporate gear transport to the festival, parties for cyclists, and other benefits.
