Boulder 360/180 rolls on with success

From the Daily Camera

This wasn't your typical hard-core, competitive Boulder bike event.

Today's 14th annual Circle Boulder bike ride, a self-guided tour of Boulder's extensive bike trails that started at Scott Carpenter Park, attracted bike enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. Between 800 and 900 people, from babies in bike trailers to seniors, typically turn out for the event.

Boulder's Bob and Sue McLean are regulars, joined by siblings and their spouses from Arvada and Niwot.

“We bike in and we love it,” said Sue McLean, who said she rarely uses her car in the summer months. “It's fun to all get together to go for a ride. It's a fun way to explore the city.”

The ride is sponsored by Boulder's Greenways Department and kicks off the city's Walk and Bike Month, which culminates with Bike to Work Day on June 22. Annie Noble, Boulder's greenways coordinator, said she tries to change up the ride each year to introduce riders to a selection of the city's 74 underpasses.
