Rocky Mountain Bike Festival sold to Ride in Longmont

From the Daily Camera

The five-year-old Rocky Mountain Bike Festival has a new home: the G'Knight Ride in Longmont. And Bicycle Longmont, organizers of the G'Knight Ride, are hoping it becomes the festival's permanent home.

Scott Conlin, a Bicycle Longmont board member and one of the coordinators of the G'Knight Ride, has bought the bike festival under the corporate name of RMBF Inc. The Bicycle Longmont board has told him it intends to take over permanent possession of the event if things go well this June, Conlin said.


He said pairing it with the G'Knight Ride should turn the festival into a bigger event than it has been. 2013 will be the third year for the G'Knight Ride and up to 3,000 are expected to participate, about triple the number of the first year.
