    • The Future of Cycling Tours? This Might Be One Way–We Ride 4’s Tour of Colorado

      Submitted by Bill Plock on August 10th, 2020

      The We Ride 4 Cycling Club just completed a four day mountain tour starting and stopping in Crested Butte with overnights in Buena Vista, Salida and Gunnison. Twenty two riders rode the loop culminating with a favorable tailwind on the wide shouldered highway between Gunnison and Crested Butte on Sunday.

      Many of the members have ridden Ride the Rockies for years. With that ride cancelled this year, they decided to form their own version of a mountain tour and do a Covid friendly smaller group ride. Founder and director, Sharon Madison decided to organize this ride not only for fun but to raise money for the clubs charity of choice, The Cottonwood Institute. The club raised $15,000 which also included a live auction via zoom on the third night at the hotel in Gunnison. The team gathered for dinner and bid, and won several items.  Read more

          • 550 Mile Bikepacking on Colorado Trail–Go Sasha Underwood! Learn Her Why and What She’s Most Excited About

            Submitted by Bill Plock on August 6th, 2020

            August 6th, Littleton: Sasha Underwood started her solo bike journey today and is planning to ride the Colorado Trail in ten days. That’s over 50 miles of single track, hike-a-bike, not easy riding every day. All of that while carrying everything she needs; clothes, food, tent, sleeping bag, tools, stove, hydration supplies, and a lot of mental toughness and grit! She did mail ahead some food to a couple of towns along the way but otherwise is self supported.

            What I’m most excited about: I’m ready to reset; my spiritual place and where I am centered and truly connected is on trails deep in the mountains in the middle of nowhere. No matter what time of year. To experience this for 10-14 days is going to be amazing. I’m also so excited for star-gazing! I was hoping for a full moon but that happened Aug 3rd. I’m also really excited to see if my hodgepodge bike set-up will actually work for 500+ miles haha Read more

                    Submitted by Bill Plock on August 3rd, 2020

                    Ok. Mt Evans wins as the best climb (not the hardest) in Colorado but not only for the one big reason you might think. Yes, thanks to Covid and not allowing cars vastly improves the experience, but there are some other factors why I believe Mt. Evans tops Pikes Peak for the top 14er climb. But it’s like choosing chocolate–there is no bad choice.  Read more

                      Submitted by Bill Plock on July 31st, 2020

                      Endurance athlete Jay Paul and some friends wanted better insurance protection when they were doing some epic endurance events like the Cloud City Wheelers race where Jay was pictured here. or something like the Triple Bypass. Says Jay, “Even though races and events generally are covered with some sort of insurance, there are still gaps and with most people nowadays having high deductible health coverage, an accident competing or training can take a lot of money out of your pocket, especially training when only your health care coverage protects you. So we wanted to come up with an on demand insurance product that pays you cash if you are injured.”  Read more
