This is a Fort Collins-focused savings blog, but this event in Boulder County is cool enough that you may want to make the trip. I was recently contacted by Greenhouse Partners regarding a special promotion for Vedus de Miles, an all-women’s road ride supporting a good cause. If you have a bike and a desire to help the future leaders of Colorado, read on.
Venus de Miles is a “road ride”. It’s not really a race, so you don’t have to be a hardcore cyclist to participate, and could dismount and push your bike up a hill without fear of judgement (that would totally be me). That being said, there isn’t a great course option for those who are usually sedentary. The event is produced by and fully supports Greenhouse Scholars and would be a fun, albeit strenuous, way to help a good cause, enjoy some beautiful scenery, and party in Prospect Park with great food, booze, music, and spa treatments.
Riders can choose 1 of 3 courses to bike.
The Cause - Greenhouse Scholars
By participating in Venus de Miles, you’re making a commitment to support Greenhouse Scholars, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping high-performing, yet under-resourced students reach their full potential. Greenhouse Scholars uses what they call a “unique and holistic Whole Person© approach” that ensures these students have scholarships to attend college and other resources to help them become community leaders. You can learn more about the program at GreenhouseScholars.org. You can also "like" them on Facebook.
In celebration of Memorial Day and the unofficial kick-off to summer, Venus de Miles is offering a $10 discount OFF the registration fee. This offer is good until May 30, 2014.
To take advantage, sign up at: http://colorado.venusdemiles.com/Register and simply enter the code: REDWHITEBLUE
Prices depend on when you register, but right now (before the discount) it costs $89 to enter. If you register after 8/, it’s $99. If you enter the day of the event, you’re looking at $129. Note: Registration is non-refundable and non-transferable - Venus de Miles is on, rain or shine!
I agreed to blog about this event promotion because I genuinely believe Greenhouse Scholars is a worthy cause. Also, I think the event is a great if you’re looking for something new to do with your gal friends. If you agree, let me know!
