Short Track and Cherry Creek TT

News Item: 

Depressing weekend if you only do two wheels and don't ski. Once again, racing was canceled (USAC tried to race but didn't go so well). Hope is on the way, the deep freeze will start to end today and we can celebrate spring with the first Short track race up in Fort Collins and the Cherry Creek TT Series on Wednesday!

According to the weather service we should get a break

Bike Safety Bill clears the house

News Item: 

The Senate Bill 148 (aka Bike Safety Bill) cleared the house by a vote of 52-13! Below is the latest from

March 30, 2009-
The Bicycle Safety Bill (Senate Bill 148) cleared another hurdle today on its journey to becoming a statewide law. The Colorado House of Representatives passed the bill (3rd Reading) on a strong 52-13 vote. Bill Sponsor Representative Michael Merrifield (D- Manitou Springs) passionately promoted the bill during the House debate.

Next the bill returns to the Senate to consider changes made by the House. Bicycle Colorado has strong concerns about one House amendment that prohibits a bicyclist from passing another bicyclist on state highways with lanes less than twelve feet wide. We are working to determining the actual affects of this language.

We will continue to work with the Legislature to improve this language and ask bicyclists and everyone wanting safe roads to be ready to weigh in on this language one last time. Please sign up for our email alerts* as we usually get only one or two days notice before a vote. Email alerts allow you to get news directly and you may unsubscribe at any time.

Womens Cycling Club

News Item: 

We featured a press release about the Venus de Miles Women's Cycling Club a couple weeks ago. I was driving home a week ago and here comes a large group of women riding east on Jay Rd. It was the first group ride of the season. I then saw this article about the ride. I think its really cool that they do a some bicycle instruction before the ride.
