  • Amy D. Foundation seeks elite female applications.

    BOULDER, Colorado (July, 2014)

    The Amy D. Foundation, created in honor of cyclocross star Amy Alison Dombroski, “encourages and supports young women through cycling, inspiring the celebration of healthy challenge and empowering the confident pursuit of lofty dreams.”

    As one part of the Amy D. Foundation’s outreach, Amy D. Racing will facilitate the growth of elite-level women’s racing by providing a comprehensive sponsorship package to talented and driven women that exhibit character and values consistent with those that Amy displayed. The focus is on providing a much-needed bridge of support to women that strive to contend at the elite ranks of the sport.

    The Amy D. Racing race schedule follows the domestic UCI events calendar and is available with the rider application. Donn Kellogg (Raleigh-Clement Cyclocross Team Manager) is managing the Amy D. Racing team. Rider applications must be received by July 22nd with a selection confirmed by August 5th.

  • Mt. Evans/Pro-Women's Purse Update

    To: The Colorado Cycling Community
    From Deirdre Moynihan,
    Ride Director, Mt. Evans

    We have publicized throughout the year that if we get more than 19 SW Pro 1/2 racers we would provide a $3000 payout (or if less than that it would be $1500). This is in contrast to the $5000 men's payout. We have marketed it extensively to women, provided discounts to women's teams, reached out to WCA and we still just have 6 women registered for the Pro race. We are disappointed in these numbers, but we will keep trying next year to increase that field and ultimately provide an equal prize. We operate on a tight budget so our payouts are a big deal. So instead, we will use these funds to reward the juniors that are taking the challenge with some extra perks. We'll also recognize the Gran Fondo - which has the bulk of the women that are registered. I understand that we may receive some serious flack about this but feel I must make decisions for the fiscal health of the event. If by chance we get 20+ riders up to July 20th, we change it back to $3000.
    -Thanks,
    Deirdre Moynihan

  • Driver gets 1 year for Fatal Hit-and-run in Fort Collins

    From Coloradoan

    Theresa Marie O'Connor, 28, was sentenced to 4 years of probation in addition to one year of time at the Larimer County Jail. If she qualifies, that 1-year straight jail sentence could be served on a work release program, meaning she would spend the day working and the rest of the time in custody. She must also pay $24,487 in restitution to the man's family and will pay more than $5,000 to Bike Fort Collins to advocate for safe cycling and bike awareness in the community.

  • New Bike Infrastructure for new Hwy36

    From the Denver Post

    As Bike to Work Day grows, cyclists and law enforcement officers are hailing a key but little ballyhooed facet of a revamped U.S. 36: a 12-foot-wide bikeway that will stretch from Westminster to Boulder.

    The bike path will include 2-foot- wide shoulders and run adjacent to U.S. 36 between 80th Avenue in Westminster and Table Mesa Drive in Boulder, where it will join up with existing trails.
    ...
    The bikeway should open by late 2015 or early 2016 as part of the completion of the Phase II portion of the widening of U.S. 36.
