            • Garage Overhaul: How to best store bikes & gear

              Submitted by 303cycling on February 19th, 2016

              This past fall we moved our family of seven – two driving, skiing, debris-trailing teenagers; three large 80-pound, kibbel-eating-and-forever-pooping dogs; “never-throw-anything-away” fix-it-handyman husband; and me – multisport enthusiast with n+1 bikes, seeking order and an indoor parking spot.

              For the first time we had a three car garage, and the possibility to finally organize all the STUFF while at the same time carving out actual protected parking space. But I knew I couldn’t do it alone. I rung up my old pal Katie Macarelli at Feedback Sports, and said, “I need not only to figure out proper hooks on which to hang my bikes, but I need advice on what to put where, and a swift kick in the backside to get it all done…”

                303 Welcomes New Contributor Scott Downes!

                And You May Ask Yourself, How Did I Get Here?
                By Scott Downes

                The first time I remember being on a bike was in the driveway of the house where I grew up, on a winding street off a county road a few miles outside of that Indiana town. A simple, silver-colored Huffy with red grips, I wobbled at first, uneasy with the balance and pedal action. There were stops and starts and spills, for sure. Soon enough though, it was another appendage that brought seemingly endless freedom… Read more

                  The well known Douglas County based Wacky Bike Ride, started by siblings Susie & Ted Wargin is turned over to Project ReCycle.

                  • Fat Bike World Championships Rocked!

                    Submitted by 303cycling on February 17th, 2016

                    Fat Bike World Championship races in Crested Butte were an overwhelming success. But, up until the last few weeks before race weekend, RD’s weren’t so sure it was even going to happen.

                    Crested Butte’s inaugural – and unofficial – Fat Bike World Championships was reported to be a touch-and-go event that almost had the plug pulled due to lack of pre-registered racers. But, in the week leading to the race, numbers grew from a mere 30 racers who’d signed up between October and December, to 260 riders lining up for several laps on Crested Butte’s wide, groomed and rolling nordic trails. Read more
