Freiker

News Item: 

I had not heard of Freiker until I read this article on Bikes Belong. This is really cool stuff both for the kids and the technology that's behind the program and its expanding. It started right here in Boulder in 2004 and continues to grow. This really gets kids excited about riding their bike to school and using their bike as a form of alternative transportation.

Boulder Velodrome is building out their Mountain Bike Park

News Item: 

Work is happening on the new Boulder Indoor MTB terrain park at the new Boulder Velodrome facility. While its not much at the moment it does look like fun, especially for kids. I stopped by the track on Saturday evening to show an out-of-town friend the facility and saw a kid there tearing it up. This news comes right on the heals of Colorado rider Lindsey Bishop's tales of her recent experience at Ray's indoor mountain biking facility in Ohio. Check out here photos on CyclingNews.com


Blue River Century

2nd Annual Blue River Century and Metric Century
Supports the Fight Against Cancer

Boulder, CO — May 20, 2009 — Following a successful inaugural year in 2008, the 2nd annual Blue River Century returns to challenge cyclists with some of the most awe-inspiring terrain in the Rocky Mountains. The Blue River Century also continues its association with the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) in the fight against cancer. As an official grassroots fund raising event of the LAF, last year's effort netted $14,000 in funds for cancer research. This year the goal is to reach $50,000 in donations for the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Event Director and Founder, Marie Willson has turned her passion for cycling into an experience that not only offers a unique chance to ride amongst Colorado’s highest peaks, but also serves as a positive affirmation of life and as an inspiration for those who have been touched by cancer. When asked why she founded this event to benefit LIVESTRONG, Marie commented, “I align with and believe in the LAF’s philosophy that Unity is Strength, Knowledge is Power and Attitude is Everything. This was an opportunity to make a difference incorporating two things I’m passionate about; cycling and the battle against cancer.”

A little about John Stenner and the John Stenner Collegiate Cycling Scholarship.

1992 Olympian and former U.S. Cycling Team Member John Stenner, one of the founding fathers of the National Collegiate Cycling Association (NCCA), spent his lifetime as a bicycle innovator and strove to elevate the quality of competition of the sport he loved.

Stenner, 29, died when he was struck by a pick-up truck while traveling home work in May, 1994, near Mead, Colo. Following his death, donations to the family poured in, and an endowment in his name was established. The John Stenner Collegiate Cycling Scholarship was subsequently established.

Stenner sought the best in everything he did on or off the bike. The John Stenner Collegiate Cycling Scholarship program recognizes athletes like John who strive for perfection and excellence throughout their lifetimes and in everything they set out to achieve.

News Item: 

Rode the track this morning on my brand new track bike. It was awesome! Some new things are happening at the track. They have added netting on turn 2 and turn 4 and they have padded all the metal posts that are on the inside of the track. The construction on the indoor mountain bike park has begun. I am not sure when the completion date is but things are moving along.
