    • Meet Josh Kravetz of Old Man Winter and Other Fun Events

      Submitted by Bill Plock on January 22nd, 2021

      Races and Events reflect the person who had the idea and makes sure they come together in a fun and safe way. Here is a question and answer with Old Man Winter’s Josh Kravetz.
      1. How many years has Old Man Winter been running and how and why did it start?

      This will be the 7th year for Old Man Winter. I’ve always been a fan of winter riding. It must be something about breathing the cold air or gearing up for a ride when everybody else is staying inside. When I was a pro MTB racer in Austin, we just to get a big crew together in winter to do our annual “600 minute” ride. I loved the camaraderie of this – riding all day, stopping for lunch, and getting in some great training. This is one of the feelings that inspired the Old Man Winter Rally originally. Read more

      • Triny Willerton and IT COULD BE ME and The Story Behind the New Video

        Submitted by Bill Plock on January 19th, 2021

        n June of 2018 we met Triny Willerton a few days after she was hit by a motorist and nearly killed. The original information from Police of how it happened were false and did not include Triny’s side of the story. Eventually the truth came out and the driver was charged. If you would like to read the whole story here is a link; https://303cycling.com/cyclist-hit-by-a-car-may-8th-the-whole-story-now/

        But the effect this had on Triny was astounding and led to a movement she created called “It Could Be Me.” She crusades to do everything possible to help makes roads safer for cyclists and vulnerable road users. She played an instrumental role in pushing for legislation in 2019 that greatly increased the penalties for drivers who injure or kill vulnerable road users. Read more

              • What Makes a Perfect Ride & Perfect Ride Partner?

                Submitted by Bill Plock on January 11th, 2021

                I’ve often thought that the perfect riding mate is one of those elusive and difficult-to-describe creatures. Like unicorns, you know it when you see it. To articulate it and actually describe, it is quite another. I’ve been blessed to ride bikes with a handful or so people in my life, who have set the bar incredibly high as perfect ride partners. I’ve paid close attention to the nuances, asking myself, “just what exactly makes this so magical?” in the hopes of being able to distill it down into words without doing the dynamic an injustice. It’s hard to describe a flow-state feeling.  Read more

                    • Castle Rock Fat Bike Snow Adventure and Cultural Hub Extraordinaire?

                      Submitted by Bill Plock on January 5th, 2021

                      When I say Castle Rock, Colorado…what comes to mind?

                      Awesome backcountry adventure? A gritty and popular brew pub vibe from “the other side of the tracks”. Perhaps that shining monument to Law and Order—The Douglas County Jail complex? Or, if you are like me, Castle Rock reminds you of New York City right? Well, in an epic Dirt Journal mix tape they all collided last week.

                      If Castle Rock reminds you of none of the above, except perhaps the Justice Center (that’s a separate story on to itself) I’ll show you how this overgrown Highlands Ranch is actually a trippy Narnia. You just need to put on the magic rose colored hippie glasses to see it. Read more
