Pedal the Plains riders enjoy discussions, eggs-on-a-stick with CEP representatives

Saturday, September 16, 2017

Colorado Egg Producers (CEP) representatives this past weekend took part in a whirlwind of activities out at the three-day Pedal the Plains.

CEP Executive Director Bill Scebbi, CEP Industry Relations Manager David Collie, and CEP Outreach Events Coordinator Terri Heine – along with her husband, Jerry – engaged in great conversations about agriculture and all things eggs with the 1,200 riders who participated in the event.

And thanks to Terri’s hard work in the kitchen, the CEP group also served up thousands of bite-sized egg treats, including CEP’s famous eggs-on-a-stick.

Pedal the Plains serves as an opportunity for cyclists to learn about farming, ranching and other rural industries, while also experiencing the unique culture, history and landscape of Eastern Plains communities.

And each year, CEP and a number of other ag organizations use the event to connect face-to-face with the many urban residents who participate in the bike ride.

This marked the sixth year that the Office of the Governor has partnered with the Denver Post Community Foundation to spotlight Colorado's rural communities on the three-day ride.

Kersey, Keenesburg and Brush were the three Colorado towns highlighted during this year’s 177-mile Pedal the Plains, which took place Sept. 15-17. Learn more here
