May is here, Volunteer! AoB hosts Tour de Fat & Strive Not to Drive


AoB is rolling urban cycling forward in May and you’re needed to assist with the pedalling. In the eleven years that we’ve been riding the city, this May is our most ambitious outreach to date. Are you ready to help us roll forward?

AoB is thrilled to announce that we’re partnering with New Belgium to host Tour de Fat on Saturday, May 20th following the annual Strive Not to Drive week. Below is a list of events with links to our volunteer forms. Please review the list and pick the event that works best for you.

Once again, I appreciate all that you do to roll AoB forward in our community. Let’s put the mission in motion this May.

Is there a better way to celebrate the end of the week than riding a bike? AoB doesn’t think so and we’re excited to launch our newest addition to our community rides as part of Strive Not to Drive Week. This ride gathers at Pack’s Park and meanders its way to New Belgium Brewing. If you’re interested in volunteering, click here.
