Sunday: Bikes begin assembling early in the South Parking Lot at Columbine High School (6201 S. Pierce St. Littleton, CO 80123). Around 10:45 a.m., some people you might know will say a few words before a balloon launch. Balloons will be launched in memory of the lives lost violently in American schools.

Bikes begin leaving Columbine at 11:15 a.m. and ride to Platte Canyon High School (57393 U.S. Highway 285, Bailey, CO 80421). The distance is approximately 45 miles. Click on the map below to see the route.
