Private Home Stay Program

The purpose of the Private Home Stay Program is to provide cyclists who prefer not to camp or stay at hotels with a bed and a bathroom.  It is a great way for cyclists to meet local residents and learn more about the community they’re passing through. By reserving a room, at a very modest price, through the Private Home Stay Program, you will not only enjoy the comforts of home…you will help generate revenue for a deserving group or organization in the area. This fall, Sterling will be participating in the program. To be assigned a host family, please contact Samara Gillespie; sterlinghosthomes@outlook.com or call 970-580-6226.

Hotels, Motels and B&Bs & Personal Luggage Service

Alpine Cycle Connection (ACC) will provide accommodation and luggage services for Pedal The Plains cyclists. You are encouraged to submit requests for hotels, motels, fine B&B’s and luggage service as soon as possible. Requests will be handled on a first come first serve basis.

Route Support
