In 2015, UpaDowna adopted a portion of the Pikes Peak Greenway/Legacy Loop to help keep it clean! The trail runs south of America the Beautiful Park to where it meets S. Tejon St. We use this portion of trail mostly for our summer Pedal Party rides which is why we felt we needed to give back and take care of it!
The trail/waterway cleanup is a partnership with the City of Colorado Springs and their Adopt-A-Waterway program. More info here.

In 2017, UpaDowna also adopted a portion of the North Monument Valley Park and Boddington Park. Some of our duties include collecting trash throughout the park, checking for and remove weeds and grasses from all shrub beds and tree rings, checking all paintable surfaces for graffiti, restocking the dog bag stations, and more!
In 2018, we adopted Quail Lake Park, a lake we use frequently for Stand Up Paddleboarding.
The park cleanup is a partnership with the City of Colorado Springs Parks & Rec and their Adopt-A-Park program. More info here.
