SUSTAINABILITY BIKE TOUR

COLORADO SPRINGS, JUNE 26, 2010

Essay by Frank Kinder, USGBC Colorado – SoCo Branch & John Olson, CNU Colorado

The Saturday event was a leisurely tour of Traditional Neighborhood Developments, LEED Certified buildings, community gardens, and local sustainability-focused restaurants and pubs.
