Tour de Fat Volunteers needed

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

TDF Mainstage image
Saturday, Sept. 1st – TOUR de FAT hits the streets of Fort Collins; Once again this year the Co-op will benefit from a percentage of beer sales and sales of T-shirts and New Belgium merchandise. We still have 50 shifts to fill here. Since we trained so many Co-op volunteers last year in TIPS, we won’t be requiring new volunteers to take this training this year. If you took the training last year, please signup again this year and bring that TIPS experience to the event. Note that if you plan to ride the TDF parade there are plenty of afternoon shifts when you can help and still pedal in the parade. You can sign up for shifts at Tour de Fat here:

Volunteers receive two beverage tokens and a Tour de Fat T-shirt!!

Please try to bring a friend, Mom and Dad, or even Gramma and Grandpa – we’d love to have them help! Help the Co-op make Tour de Fat successful.

Bike Co-op recognized with Environmental Stewardship Award

Monday, December 12th, 2011

Ben Gannon accepted the Environmental Stewardship award on behalf of the Bike Co-op and all of our recycling volunteers.

The Board of Larimer County Commissioners today announced the 2011 Larimer County Environmental Stewardship Awards. These awards, began in 1995, are given each year to honor the environmental efforts of county residents, businesses and organizations. To date 58 awards have been presented to programs, people and organizations since the program began 17 years ago. Today five more recipients are added.  Winning programs are innovative and proactive, and show exceptional effort and concern for stewardship of the environment of Larimer County.

The County’s volunteer-citizen Environmental Advisory Board reviews the nominations and makes recommendations to the Commissioners who determine the recipients.
The Fort Collins Bicycle Co-op, for their comprehensive actions designed to make bicycles and bicycle riders sustainable. These efforts include: bicycle safety education for children, such as the bike rodeo and helmet distribution; repairing and returning refurbished bikes that were abandoned or unclaimed to the community and to Ghana as part of the village bicycle project; recycling the steel, aluminum, and rubber from worn out bikes; and, embracing the principle of sustainability and providing an important example.

Thanks to all the volunteers who make this happen for our community!
