For the second year running, Bike Fort Collins hosted the Remington Bike Count Challenge. Last year, due to the pandemic, we threw this event together as an attempt to bring folks “together” in a socially distant capacity on what would have been Bike to Work Day 2020. Our goal was simple, to beat the record for number of cyclists to pass the automated counted located at the corner of Remington and Lake Streets. The current record of 1,737 was set on Tour de Fat 2017. In 2020 we came so very close at a final count of 1,502. Although this year’s attempt fell a bit shorter at 1,177 counts, the enthusiasm and community support was not lacking and we are particularly grateful to BFC volunteers Scott Bolte, Roslyn Stern, Sarah Brooks, Susan Law, Sam Altman for all their heartfelt cheers and heckling. It should be noted that the Remington Bike Count Challenge is not a true capture of mode share, but rather a symbolic demonstration of what we are capable of as a community when we work together, as we are truly greater than the sum of our parts. We have already set our sights on next year. Gear up Fort Collins!
