• There are many things you can do as a local citizen to make a cross country cyclist's stay in Pueblo more enjoyable.  Most importantly, be courteous, with both driving etiquette and just plain being personable.  Follow the rules of the road, and if you see a cyclist carrying a lot of gear and looking lost, stop and ask if they need help finding anything. 

  • I also urge people to register to host cross country cyclists in their homes through warmshowers.org and couchsurfing.org.  I've been doing it for years.  It's a great way to meet interesting people, hear stories about the open road, give the cyclists a local tour or information about Pueblo, and who knows, you may even meet the love of your life.

  • Local business owners can also strive to become a bicycle friendly business, which help make Pueblo a safer and better place for their employees and also for bicycle tourists.

  • Volunteer with Pueblo Active Community Environments.  Understand what is being done in your community to make it more bicycle and pedestrian friendly.
