              Submitted by 303cycling on April 25th, 2016

              Rather than write about my TT experience, which is pretty consistent week to week (I rode *expletive* hard and *expletive* fast), for my second race report, I’d do a feature on a team that not only participates in the series but also is a platform for helping more women get into cycling and racing.

              Dana Platin and Roberta Smith, Naked Women’s Racing Team

              I met Roberta Smith from the Naked Women’s Racing Team in week 2 – she was the rider immediately behind me. Roberta is not only crazy fast (she zoomed past me within 1:30 of my start), she’s incredibly nice and an ambassador for the sport of cycling. She didn’t hesitate to offer this newbie some great tips and some whoops of encouragement as we zoomed by each other on the course. . . Read more

                      The question came up after the floods in 2013, after all the damage in Jefferson County was assessed, and after a core network trails were closed to mountain bikes for too long in the eyes of many. It came after tough conversations about trail usage and maintenance and stewardship. And it came after talk of restrictions and limitations that did not sit well with the people who ride those trails the most. Read more
