The fourth annual Rocky Mountain Bicycle Festival (RMBF) is set to kick off in Denver, Colorado this weekend (11-12 June) at INVESCO Field. As well as exhibitors from the bike industry there’ll be free sports clinics, goldsprint roller racing, bike movies, a Cruiser Jamboree, plus free yoga and massage. There’ll also be a kids’ riding course and games and art corner.
“We’re lucky to have exhibitors that are some of the most innovative companies around,” says festival director Carol Johnson. “Boulder-based Green Guru will be accepting old tubes, wetsuits and climbing rope that they reclaim and turn into everything from leashes to luggage.
“Ron [Andrews] from King Cage will be showing people how he makes his world-famous titanium and steel bottle cages. We’ll have great custom frame builders, non-profit groups and niche companies like Hüdz Enhancement Brake Hoods there as well.”

Johnson says this year’s festival will be the largest yet, thanks in part to the addition of adaptive cycling companies. “The Rocky Mountain Bicycle Festival is about finding a way to get everyone on bikes,” she says. “That’s why we’re so pleased to add this component for disabled riders and anyone who needs additional assistance getting on a bike. Companies like Assisted Cycling Tours and US Handcycling show that riding really is for everyone.”
