Incredibly hard and extremely fun

Racing and loving cyclocross at 50 Cyclocross. How does one begin to describe it? It involves racing laps over varied terrain with supportive derision (heckling) and obstacles like sand, mud, barricades, steep ups and downs, ridiculous turns and off-camber things most people wouldn’t choose to ride willingly. Every time I line up…

The positive proof just keeps piling up

Enlightenment at 12 miles per day

Women Bike Colorado night at the movies!

“The worst day on a bike is still a pretty good day.” Spoken by a pro woman cyclist, that was one of the lines that stayed with me from Jennifer Hardacker’s film, The Wind In Our Hair. The documentary, which follows an eclectic and engaging cast of characters–all women and girls who love to…

Route finding by bike about to get easier in Jefferson County
