Thank you Bicycle Colorado!

I'll say more formally later this week on the Colorado Bike Summit but I want to take the time now to Thank Bicycle Colorado for once again bringing the entire state of Colorado together and create the wonderful cycling event. NO ONE in Colorado brings so many various cycling related people together for the purpose of Colorado bike growth like Bicycle Colorado does with their Annual Bike Summit! Please take a moment and consider returning that support to Bicycle Colorado by being so kind and become one of their members or simply by liking them on Facebook. This year's Colorado Bike summit is easily on target once again to make it one of the 10 ten cycling events for 2012!
