GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - September is Grand Valley Bike Month when Mesa County encourages residents to bike for fun, fitness, transportation, and to help the environment.

The Bike Month Film Fest will be held on Tuesday, September 14 at the Avalon. The event will feature 5 mountain bike films, speakers from local bike advocate groups, and prizes.

Doors open at 6:30 PM and the show starts at 7 p.m. For tickets, visit the Bike Month website.

Businesses and organizations are encouraged to try bike commuting for an entire week through the Bike Month Business Challenge, the week of September 19-25.
