A spring ride—made of bamboo
Tooling along the 10-mile Poudre River Trail (fcgov.com/parks) is a rite of spring in the bike-crazed town of Fort Collins, known for its progressive two-wheeled attitude. Speaking of progressive, Panda Bicycles (closed Sun; pandabicycles.com) has moved in, raising the bar for sustainable rides with its bamboo frames made locally. At around $2K, these bikes aren’t cheap, so we recommend a demo ride before you commit. You could be the cool one with the ecobike on the next sunny day on the trails.
