  • We’ve heard from a lot of #BicycleColorado members and supporters lately about the joy they’ve felt while riding their bikes in recent days! Our next few posts will feature some of their stories. This one comes from Jenny and Stan S.: “We went with 2 neighbors to Utah prior to the lockdown for solitary bike and hiking. Photos of blue/green MTB trail in Dead Horse State Park. The trails were empty and dry. The visitor center had too many people for my comfort. Later Utah visitor centers closed. Mercifully, most  bathrooms remained open.

We traveled with bleach spray, wipes, gloves, buffs, raincoats (to wear indoors!). We ate inside our car and motel room. PBJ and frozen turkey pot pies.”
