Of course anyone reading 303 on a regular basis knows commuting by bike is great and does it probably at least once a week but please share this with anyone in your office who complained about the drive today... To far to bike... fine take the bus... bus doesn't stop infront of your house, fine, ride to the nearest regional link. Encourage them do to that just once a week.
We've covered local bike polo events before and I've watched some grass polo events and this video really brings out the true grit needed to perform well in the sport. There use to be a very active Denver hard court team, their website is dead... are they?

The James L. Oberstar Safe Routes to School Award is given annually for outstanding achievement in implementing a Safe Routes to School program in the United States. The award is named for James L. Oberstar, former chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee (2007-2011) and former U.S. Representative for Minnesota's 8th Congressional District (1975-2011), to honor his dedication to American schoolchildren as the pioneer for the federal Safe Routes to School Program. Mr. Oberstar sponsored the Safe Routes to School legislation that strives to create safe settings to enable more children and parents to walk and
bicycle to school.
