DENVER (AP) - Northeastern Colorado’s third annual Pedal the Plains Bicycle Tour will follow the South Platte River and include stops in Wiggins, Fort Morgan and Sterling.

Gov. John Hickenlooper says the 173-mile ride set for Sept. 19-21 is “about people from all over the state coming together, being outside, exercising and exploring the state’s heritage and history.”

The Denver Post reports (https://bit.ly/1iND4PZ ) the tour will take cyclists through terrain that includes the Pawnee National Grasslands and Jackson Reservoir, as well as working farms and ranches, wetlands habitat and wind farms. It’s also routed and timed to coincide with Fort Morgan’s annual Fall Harvest Car Show and Sterling’s Sugar Beet Days.

Bicyclists can participate in any of the three ride offerings, including the 3-Day Tour, Century Ride and Family Fun Ride.
