If your child goes to Casey Middle school and they are interested in cycling then listen up.... And if not, then take notice how some schools are opening up greater access to cycling programs!

Some of them have never owned a bike before! They are thrilled to be out discovering Boulder's bike paths and trails on our rag-tag fleet of mountain bikes.

Larimer County Sheriff in 2010

News Item: 

It looks like the Ft. Colins cycling community is getting organized to defeat Sheriff Alderden in 2010. The follow information went out in an email:

We are building momentum to defeat the current Sheriff in the 2010 election as he is a bit of a creep. Here is the first of many blows. Please forward this out.

From Ford Isbey (rebel rouser)
He sent the following (below) letter to Bicycle Colorado

You guys should each have addresses of more cyclists or folks who support cycling....which I will not have in this distribution. Please forward the Bicycle Colorado alerts and any other information you like to rally AS MANY PEOPLE as possible. If contacting each of our State Senators is the next move....a deluge of emails will speak loudly. EVERYONE needs to step up and put some effort into this and be a huge counter-punch to the Sheriff and others opposing our enjoyment of a sport we're passionate about. If any of your contacts are interested in receiving these updates please forward their addresses and they'll be added.

Thanks,

Ford
