We’re now entering the prime gravel riding season in many parts of the country including Colorado, and Alchemy, SRAM, Zipp, and Bicycle Colorado partnered to bring you an exclusive chance to win big. With a maximum of 300 tickets sold, this is your best chance to score an unparalleled gravel machine. Even better than the chance at winning, each ticket purchase is a gift in support of bicycle advocacy.

Your ticket purchase is a vote in support of this vision and supports their advocacy and education work. Read more
The Bicycle Racing Association of Colorado (BRAC) held a Zoom Town Hall Meeting last Tuesday night to review results from a member survey and provide those who tuned in an update on racing. The overall message is there is no clear path moving forward as to when we can race again. They collected 695 surveys asking members about desires to race, their concerns with safety, how their cycling behavior has changed in the last couple of months, and what types of events they were planning to ride—interesting that more than a third planned to do both a mountain or gravel events.

Yes I am a pirate, two hundred years too late, The cannons don’t thunder, there’s nothing to plunder, I’m an over-forty victim of fate…Jimmy Buffet
I heard those lyrics in 1975. At 15 I figured anybody still trying to compare themselves to a pirate was already dead. Most 40 year old’s I knew in La Crosse, Wisconsin were well on their way to middle age. Most shelving their athletics after High School glory days, save for 10 years of competitive softball, then a catastrophic injury. Except this one dude. His name was Jim Asfoor and his family was from Syria. He was U.S Navy veteran and their family owned the junk yard and they were rich!
