Pedal Fort Collins

About

Pedal Fort Collins is dedicated to the idea that bicycling is for everyone.
Used as a form of transportation, bicycling promotes

  • activity in a sedentary world, 
  • sustainability in a consumer driven world, and
  • community in an increasingly polarized world.

Meg Dunn has been writing for Pedal Fort Collins since May of 2015. With Pedal Fort Collins, Meg combines her love of writing with her care for the environment, a growing understanding of the effect that various types of transportation have upon the economic and social health of a community, and personal recognition that keeping active can be a positive and helpful way to deal with stress and fight off some physical ailments.

Ever since her kids have been old enough to start walking and bicycling to school on their own, Meg has found herself in a position of advocating for safe sidewalks and streets. Her mission to provide safe routes for her kids and their classmates has grown over time to include a call for improved transportation infrastructure throughout the city of Fort Collins for all people of every age and ability.

Recognizing a need to not only improve infrastructure, but also to educate users and promote discussion around transportation issues, Meg started Pedal Fort Collins on the same network as she’d already been writing Forgotten Fort Collins, a local history blog.

Meg and her husband, Rob, have three teenagers. One is currently attending CSU and the other two are seniors in high school. Meg also has three dogs who she walks regularly, giving her a chance to experience the city at a pedestrian pace.
