Bicycle Colorado supports us while Boulder has no BRA

News Item: 

I've been saying this for years, Boulder needs a BRA. Last night I attended the BMA spring fundraiser at Rembrandt Yards. Besides the fun, BMA does a lot for the mountain biking community in building trails, gaining access, working with officials on trail issues and enforcement and more. But where is Boulder's BRA for recreational road cyclists? Some have said it is not needed because road cyclists do not have the same issues that mountain bikers have, largely such as trail access.

News Item: 

Spring is here and once again we’re knee deep in planning for the second Boulder Bicycle Swap. This year it will held on Sunday, May 20, 2012 on the grounds of Boulder Indoor Cycling. Our first year we had 45 vendors and 1,000 attendees. This year we are expecting to see much bigger numbers!

The Boulder Bicycle swap is a place to sell and buy bikes and parts, as well as a meeting ground for industry people, manufacturers, bike shops, and like-minded cyclists. The Swap exists solely through the efforts of volunteers and is a free community event. We intend to remain that way.

We would be grateful if 303Cycling could help sponsor our event. Your company’s presence at the Boulder Bicycle Swap would greatly add to our function, and your products have real relevance to our participants. We also think that 303Cycling will benefit through its’ collaboration. It would give increased exposure to your company within the cycling community. 303Cycling is an important locally grown business whose values match our guidelines for outstanding community engagement.
