Come out to the FoCo Eco Cruise!
Hello everyone! On Saturday, October 8th, The Northern Colorado Renewable Energy Society (NCRES) is hosting the first ever FoCo Eco Cruise from 9 am-5 pm. Previously known as the Solar Homes Tour, this year’s event has morphed into a tour of sustainable sites throughout northern Fort Collins.
The self-guided and bike-friendly tour starts at the Fort Collins Bike Library LaPorte Station at 9 am and ends at the Rocky Mountain Innosphere at 3 pm. Participants who would like to ride should plan on bringing their own bikes or can check one out from the Bike Library on the morning of the event. An estimated 250 attendees have expressed interest, so this could be quite the biking event of early Fall!
Show up Saturday, October 8th between 9 am – 11 am at the Bike Library LaPorte Station (222 LaPorte Ave, between Mason & Howes) to get your Cruiser Bag, meet our friendly partner groups, and take off on the Cruise!
There will be a mix of eight residential and two non-residential sites on the cruise: each of which demonstrate a sincere commitment to integrating green building techniques, renewable energy technologies and eco-landscaping principles with a magic x-factor…their interest in sharing it with YOU, the Eco Cruiser!
Tickets will be available on the day of the event. Tickets prices are listed below:
Family: $20 (two adults, two children age 12 and up. Children under 12 ride free!)
Group: $50 (up to six people)
All proceeds go to support NCRES events and operations. You can also win free tickets by attending a FortZED Community Energy Challenge ZEDFest house party the day before on Friday, October 7th (a couple of tickets will be given away at each house party as a door prize!).
