Gears N’ Beers will Celebrate Spring Activities in Avon


AVON, CO – Calling all Weekend Warriors! It’s time to celebrate the spring season and the opening of Avon’s paths and trails with a free family-friendly event in Avon on Saturday, April 14th. The first event in the Westin Riverfront’s Ride Avon First series, Gears N’ Beers, will feature live music, bike demos, family entertainment, and a pump track, with great local eats and craft beer on sale.

The festivities in Nottingham Park will kick off at 3:30 p.m. with a town-wide scavenger hunt. Participants will dart around Avon in a hunt for forgotten places, off-the-wall items, new amenities, and little-known facts in a Town exploration that is part bike race, part scavenger hunt. Scavenger hunt participants are encouraged to be onsite by 3:00 p.m. before heading out at the 3:30 p.m. start time. The official end time for the scavenger hunt is 4:30 p.m., and the winners will be announced following the live music at 6:00 p.m. Teams can be as big or small as participants like, and bikes are encouraged!

At 4:00 p.m., a modular pump track will open in Nottingham Park, and Progressive Bike Ramps will facilitate friendly competition for all ages and skill levels. Participants can bring their own bike and/or skateboard. The park will be abuzz with other family-friendly activities, including an inflatable bouncy house and interactive art with Alpine Arts Center. Optimum Events will provide beverage service, including a craft beer selection. Food will be available from Rocky Mountain Taco, Mr. G’s Cuisine and Baked and Loaded.

Denver band Gasoline Lollipops will take the stage at 4:30 p.m., with a new incarnation of alt-country that combines the sincerity of dirt-floor folk with the high-energy and rebelliousness of punk. Winner of Denver Westword’s 2016 Best Country Artist and multiple other accolades, Gasoline Lollipops will bring a lively, heartfelt performance to the Avon Performance Pavilion!

The party will continue until 7:00 p.m., with music, bike demos, family entertainment, and food vendors. This free event promises to celebrate what makes biking and hiking in Avon so special!
