Tell us about your trip. Where did you go? Was the trip with a group, or did you make the arrangements yourself? Why did you choose this trip? How long did the trip take? Did you have to train for it? Did you bring your own bike, or rent a bike? What were the accommodations like, if it was an overnight? What are some of the highlights? Did you encounter any challenges? Would you recommend this trip? (Please include any websites, addresses, etc. for travel arrangements). Please include one high resolution JPG format photo.
Join the movement to make bicycling better:
Imagine a place where one bike lane leads to the next. Where trails, bridges and underpasses lead safely to exactly where you want to go. And regardless of your bicycling experience or fitness, you can pedal smoothly across the street, across town or even across the country. Peopleforbikes.org is working to make this vision a reality. They are gathering one million names pledging support of better bicycling in America, to speak with one powerful voice – to let our elected leaders and the public know that bicycling is important and should be promoted.
Ride The Divide, the mountain bike film/documentary, will be shown at the Stargazers Theatre on Thursday, February 10 at 7:00pm to benefit Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates and their "Missing Link Trail" project. They are building a new, 5-mile long trail on the South Slope of Pikes Peak that will connect Barr Trail with Cheyenne Canon. The project has been approved and spearheaded by the Medicine Wheel group. "Missing Link Trail" will serve a multitude of users, from mountain bikers to trail runners to hikers. Following the film, Mike Dion, producer and a star of the film, will also be on hand to speak about Ride The Divide.
