‘Tour De Taco’ hits Pueblo

The City of Pueblo will sponsor the first of its kind “Tour De Taco” on Sat., Sept. 6, inviting members of the community to take part in a casual, free bike ride around the city while also stopping at numerous Mexican restaurants to enjoy Pueblo-style Mexican good.

The 13-mile tour, ideal for all ages, skill levels and appetites, will begin on the corner of East D and South Main streets in downtown Pueblo. There will be a safety talk and pre-ride handouts provided at 11:15 a.m. with the ride starting at 11:30 a.m.

The “Tour De Taco” will cover several areas in Pueblo, including the Mesa Junction, Bessemer, Historic Union Avenue, East Side, and along the new bicycle trails on Greenwood Street and Elizabeth Street on the Historic North Side.

In addition, there will be a couple of stops for a chance to split up to sample the local Mexican cuisine to suit your appetite and your budget. Plus, there will be two opportunities for people to bail out early and not have to ride the entire course.

After the ride, participants are invited to stay around to socialize at one of the tour’s Mexican food locations.

The tour offers a chance to show off the new bicycle lanes across Pueblo as well as promote local business, Stephanie Chambers, City of Pueblo Bike and Pedestrian Coordinator, said.

The “Tour De Taco” is part of the “Moving Pueblo Forward Movement” and P.A.C.E. (Pueblo Active Community Environments).

To volunteer or for more information, contact Chambers at 553-2345.
