June is Bike Month in Colorado, aka the best month of the year. Bike Fort Collins, Overland Mountain Bike Association, FoCo Fondo Fest and FCBikes have a ton of stuff planned for 2021. Some of the events are part of the festivities some aren’t but who cares.

June 11 – 27th

Last December we brought the Bicycle Film Festival to Fort Collins for the first time in a virtual format. We are especially proud to bring back another virtual festival in June to help celebrate Bike Month. 

This time, tune in to watch the feature length, Together We Cycle along with a collection of other short films. Together We Cycle chronicles the events that led to the Dutch’s bike-centricity, which wasn’t always a smooth ride. But, it showcases the struggle can be worth it, as it encapsulates a bicycle culture Bike Fort Collins envisions for our city.BUY TICKETS

How does the virtual Bicycle Film Festival work?

A ticket allows you to view the a series of short films followed by the feature length, Together We Cycle from Friday June 11 at 6:00pm MT through Sunday June 27th at 11:59pm MT streamed to your computer, tablet, or smart TV by simply clicking on the link provided by email 15 minutes before the opening date and time. 

Ticket prices are “sliding scale” $10, $15, $20 so all ticket prices entitle you to the same content. You may view BFF in one sitting, or at your own pace from the comfort and safety of your home.

A portion of all ticket sales goes to support Bike Fort Collins

Bicycle Film Festival has been celebrating bicycles through art, film and music for the last 20 years with over 90 cities worldwide and a viewer audience of 1 million and growing. The festival has an incredible history of working with the most important artists, filmmakers, venues, and institutions around the world.

New Belgium will be open. We’ll offer this casual training ride in-person and break into groups as needed to comply with Larimer County’s Covid guidelines. Although this is not a no-drop ride, everyone should have some excellent folks to ride with. We’ll reserve a table at New Belgium after for those who would like to stick around for a beer and food truck lunch. More info: https://tinyurl.com/yxpn5quf

A just-for-fun women’s* ride. We’ll have several options to make the route shorter so riders of different abilities can come together for this special day. Although this is not a no-drop ride, everyone will have some excellent women to ride with and be able to complete the route at a pace they are comfortable with. With so many women picking up bikes over the last year, it will be a great opportunity to meet more women along the Front Range and have more friends at events in the future!

Every June, Colorado celebrates Bike Month and here in Fort Collins, we love anything that highlights and promotes people who ride bicycles. In 2021, we’re back on track with Bike to Work (or Wherever) Day, planned for Wednesday, June 23, 2021.

What is Bike to Work (or Wherever) Day? Some have described it as “Fort Collins’ best holiday”. Others love the celebration of people who ride bicycles. Some hosts want to contribute to our Platinum-designated bicycle culture and community. During BT(W)D, community members are encouraged to travel by bike wherever they’re headed, be it work, errands, to drop kids to daycare, or just for fun. Participants who ditch the car in favor of a bicycle can find free breakfast located all around Fort Collins. Some participants try to hit as many stations as possible. Others are happy to find a scenic spot to comingle with a few other folks. The point is to get on your bike wherever you’re headed that morning!

Check back periodically for the most up-to-date information, including our Call for Station Hosts and Station Host Resources, public health guidance, and more.

Let this be the year that we break the Remington Bike Count record!

Back by popular demand, Bike Fort Collins leads the charge to break the standing Remington Bike Count record on Bike to Work (Wherever”) Day this June. The current record was set on September 2, 2017 with 1,737 riders counted. Last year,on the same day, we came quite close to beating that record at 1,502 riders, but narrowly missed the goal. Help us achieve our goal of 2,000 riders by riding your bike past the Remington Bike Count located on Remington Avenue near the corner of Lake Street. Racking up the bike count numbers on this day is more about the symbolic coming together as a community than capturing actual bicycle mode share. With that in mind, please don’t feel shy about riding past the counter multiple times. This is about having fun and racking up the scoreboard.
