• 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
