Attention Fort Collins CSU Fans

Got this from FCVelodrome the other day...

OK, I took a leap of faith in predicting the Rams would be on the
podium at Track Nationals. So, after day one, we're already there,
with Dan "the Lion" Lionberg taking first in the 3000m pursuit(his
best event is yet to come), and Tirrel Grovenstein also placing in the
Women's 2000m pursuit. CSU is in contention to take the Omnium awards
from other collegiate teams who have major scholarship support and a
local velodrome for their athletes. Our kids are awesome, and chose to
be here because Fort Collins is far and away, a superior cycling home
base(and CSU is an excellent university). What could we be with a
convenient cycling park and velodrome within a stone's throw from
campus (and New Belgium)? Answer.......Perennial National Champions.

Would that help Dr. Penley and the Board of Regents make their 20%
enrollment ambition easier? I think so.

We have seats available on our private charter bus to the Springs for
the final night of the TrackNATS. We leave from my office at 3 PM
Saturday 9/13 and the cost is $20 or $10 for CSU Students for the

Lookout Road is getting a wider shoulder

News Item: 

Boulder County is finally taking steps to break the barriers from riding into the eastern part of the county by widening Lookout road from 75th to 95th. I live about a mile from Lookout I for one am very glad to see this project moving along however personally I think more folks would benefit from Valmont being wider from 75 to 95th.

Colorado Road Season is over... already?

News Item: 

This weekend we saw the final road race in Colorado.... and now the season is over and CX starts next week. While I am very excited for CX to start I am surprised that the season is over especially considering it starts in such crappy weather season of April.

Here a reader comments on the season ending so soon.

Cycling to school increases

News Item: 

This Sunday the DailyCamera ran this story on how cycling to school is on the rise, yes, front page article!!!

I have been working with my neighborhood school last year trying to increase the number of kids walking or cycling by having a Walk and Roll week and by working with the government on a grant for Safe Routes to School. Our "Walk and Roll" event was a huge success and many of those kids and parents continued to walk or roll weeks after the event took place. It is soooo easy to get the kids to bike.... but getting the parents to bike was not so.

That was the first thought across many parents minds.
- Too many cars buzzing around the school in the morning.
- Have to cross a busy street.
- My 3rd grader is not old enough to ride without an adult (they are too lazy/busy to ride with them).
- Sidewalks are not big enough
