They just keep getting better

Our Wednesday training sessions are growing every week. The course is getting ridden in and looking great. For this week we'll have open training again. The following week which is the Wednesday after Labor Day we'll organize a "race" situation. The "start" time will be 5:30 to give everyone a chance to get there from work. We'll roll off then and "race" 6 laps which should be equal to about 45 minutes. So, this week train, next week come to "race". See you there.

Real Vet Racing....Calling Military Vets To The Line!

I live with cycling at the center of my life. Like most here, I’m fortunate that it can take such a prominent role in our lives. We rise to ride, sleep to recover and push ourselves to excel, but there is more. This past June I had the chance to work with a group of active and retired, able and disabled military on a new project called Vet Expeditions (VET-Ex). The goal of the program is to invite a group of veterans to train for a summit bid on California’s 14,162 foot Mt Shasta. My job was to… Continue

It's Growing

Wow! Last Wednesday we had twice as many riders as the week before. Only about 20, but still it's growing. All I could do was ride around easy and show people where the course went since I'd already beat myself up doing hard efforts before anyone else got there. For the next couple of weeks we'll keep the training informal. If you want to go hard, have fun. If you want to work on skills, we have some portable barriers to use. I'm thinking that the Wed. after Labor Day we'll start something a… Continue

Wednesday night cross reminder

For those of you in the Denver area, don't forget our Wednesday night training rides at Lookout Mtn. Youth Services Center in Golden. The course has been ridden, it's been cut, I've even had some people out on motorcycles riding it in so it should be getting a bit less bumpy. Now all it takes is riders. Come on out. This week will still be a bit informal but soon, probably end of August or early Sept. we'll start to have a more "formal" race training.

Wednesday Night Training in Golden, Colorado

Last week was our first training session. The few who showed up love the course but it needs to be ridden. So I'm attaching a flyer with the pertinent information. Wednesday Night.docx

Weeknight Training in Golden, Colorado

Starting this week our course at Lookout Mtn. Youth Services Center in Golden, CO will be open on Wednesday nights for training. Come on out. The more the merrier. We are also planning to get a little more organized this year and have a "formal" training race / clinic starting at 5:00 pm at least every other Wednesday. We'll have to charge a minimal fee for those just to cover the insurance cost but it will be minimal. This is barely in the planning stage right now but you can still come out… Continue
