Innovative thinkers and entrepreneurs extraordinaire Jacob Castillo and John McKinney, graduates from Colorado State, have now been growing bikes now for a little over a year … that’s right growing bikes. The long-time bike fanatics started their business with the idea of using bamboo grown on a bamboo farm in the Yucatan, Mexico to create some of the most durable and interesting bicycles ever seen. The “Greenhouse,” or shop as some might like to call it is located in downtown Fort Collins and they can be found on the web at www.pandabicycles.com.

If you are not interested in grown bikes or have a taste for something less organic, try a Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt. Last month Colorado resident Wes Becker opened his third Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt franchise in Colorado, after seeing his other two take off in Denver. Both Becker and business partner Scott Adams are excited to continue bringing premium frozen yogurt to the Rockies and are excited about possibly opening more stores along the Front Range. Visit www.pingberry.com for a store near you.

If riding a bamboo bike and eating frozen yogurt isn’t your thing, then hot summer weather or anytime of the year is the time to make your way up to Boulder for the opportunity to tour some of Colorado’s finest brews. Boulder Brewing companies have been expanding over the years, and Boulder County is becoming more, and more of a brew masters paradise. Here are some of the facilities you can tour: Avery Brewing Company (www.averybrewing.com), Twisted Pine Brewing (www.twistedpinebrewing.com) Walnut Brewery & Restaurant (www.walnutbrewery.com), Asher Brewing Company (www.asherbrewing.com) and Boulder Beer Company (www.boulderbeer.com). Although there are many more breweries throughout Boulder County it would be difficult to list all of them, but if you have the time, research some of Colorado’s best brews on the web at www.coloradobeer.org.
