2015 - Bicycle Dreams

On Sunday, March 1, we have reserved the Boedecker Theatre at the Dairy Center (26th and Walnut) for two private showings of Bicycle Dreams. This award winning film by Stephen Auerbach follows the stories of riders of the 2009 Race Across America (RAAM).

Called the "World's Toughest Bicycle Race", riders race from coast to coast 24 hours a day testing their physical and mental toughness to the limits. This film will have you both in awe and in tears as events unfold over the week long race.

2015 - Iron Horse Bicycle Classic

The Iron Horse Bicycle Classic was the brain child of Tom Mayer and his older brother Jim. Jim worked as a brakeman on the D & R G W railroad which had run the steam powered locomotive between Durango and Silverton since the 1880's. Tom was a young bicycle enthusiast who grew up alongside the tracks to Silverton.

Tom challenged Jim to a race to Silverton. As the train came by the house, the steam whistle screamed and Tom climbed on his trusty steel framed 10 speed and pedaled up over the rim of the old volcano and descended into the caldera to the mining town of Silverton.
