BVBF 2013Aaron Rosenthal
We sent out a survey to BVBF participants from the last 3 years. Check out the survey results here http://www.bvbf.org/BVBF13/BVBF-Survey.htm . When asked specifically about the proposed date change 66% said they agreed or strongly agreed that they would be more likely to ride BVBF and another 22% were neutral. Even when they were informed it would take place the day before Elephant Rock, 68% said they would be more likely to ride BVBF and another 8% said they would ride both. While the date change doesn't guarantee good weather (years ago I arrived in Leadville on July 4th in snow), the odds are improved and we are virtually guaranteed to have no issues with snow obstructing the route around Turquoise Lake and the Mineral Belt Trail. We are also pleased to announce some new blood (or is that bike lube) on the BVBF committee. Stacy Harris and Jim Clere have stepped up to help out. Their roles are yet to be defined, but we welcome the new ideas and support they will bring.
As of this writing we aren't exactly sure when BVBF registration will open, but we are hopeful it will be before the end of this year. Check out www.bvbf.org for updated information. Have a wonderful and safe holiday season.
