STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colorado — Three things cross my mind as I chase Rob Mitchell up the single-track known as the Emerald Mountain Trail that overlooks this gorgeous mountain town.
First, the air is thin, and I am not. I should have stuck to my training plan and diet. Second, wolfing down that gargantuan burger at the Double Z BBQ joint before the ride was a really bad idea. Finally, you would think someone with the title “company president” would spend a lot more time behind his desk and a lot less time messing around in the dirt.
After spending the better part of the morning touring high-end bike manufacturer Moots, I am attempting to gulp enough oxygen to survive this ascent, while Mitchell continues our conversation in his relaxed, soft-spoken demeanor. My gasping makes it clear I am no longer interested in hearing about his company and its obsession with titanium in a carbon-mad industry, and he rides away from me as if I am tied to one of the beautiful aspens.

We have been reading in several publications about the idea of making Bailey a hub for mountain biking in the Front Range, which would be awesome for mountain bikers and for Bailey's economy. Could Bailey become the next IMBA "ride center"?
BAILEY • For most mountain bikers, it’s a fly speck on the map along U.S. Highway 285 they blast through en route to epic rides.
But some in this sleepy Park County hamlet have big biking dreams. They have launched an effort to build 140 miles of trails, which they say could transform the town into a biking destination on par with Fruita.
The Colorado Mountain Bike Association says Bailey’s location is ideal, close to Front Range cities and surrounded by world-class trails. It’s just Bailey that is the missing link.
“It’s not like it’s building a trail system that would be isolated and asking people to come. Bailey is the right place to interconnect all these trail systems that exist,” said Bailey rider Shane Kinkennon, who is leading the trail-building effort.
It's official folks, no Boulder stage in 2013. But don't worry the tour goes on and it will still be a great show. While the stage will be missed it's probably good to give other cities a taste of cycling (because Boulder doesn't need to be reminded of what cycling is) and also give time for some of the battles waged to make Stage 6 happen this year to heal and policies maybe changed to make a future stage in Boulder easier.
