Please remember that the cycling community specific Foothills Area Open House is also taking place on the 30th from 4-6:30 pm. I would recommend hitting the open house to share your concerns about the Fort Collins Natural Areas 10 Year Management plan on your way to the races. 20-30mins should be sufficient. More information on the open house here.
