Giving thanks

My wife and I recently took a little trip to visit some family in Missouri and since we elected to drive….the bikes came with.  Now since this was a family visit, the bikes just came along for that “just in case” moment. We had no scheduled routes or destinations, just thoughts of slipping away to … Continue reading

Interbike launches 2010.

The bicycle has been around for what… 200 years or so, plus or minus a few depending on what you read?  Basically the only thing that has changed since its original conception is the addition of a propulsion system. It’s so simple; a couple wheels attached to a frame in a way that allows one … Continue reading

A Silent Auction Says A Lot

This Saturday, August 15th, a silent auction will be held to come to the aid of a huge member of our bicycling community. Although Stuart Culp is well on his road to recovery, he still has a long journey ahead of him until he’s back on the pedals again; and a journey like this can … Continue reading

Woohoo! Three feet!

On Wednesday, August 5 2009, Colorado joins 14 other states with bills which require a distance of three feet when passing a cyclist.  Burt Reynolds could not be happier about gaining three feet (1 yard).  The bill, 148, also gives motorists the right to safely cross the center line whilst passing cyclists…I could joke about … Continue reading
