Introduction to Pacelines in Group Rides

Aug 25th, 2013 | By | Category: Cycling News

Etiquette, rules, and safety can vary from group to group. Let’s start off by saying that if you don’t know how a particular group does things, it is really your responsibility to ask before the ride gets underway. The following are some guidelines for pacelines with the Boulder Cycling Club, but should work for most other group rides.

If you have never been on a group ride in Boulder, please first read about Your First Group Ride. It is totally ok if you’ve never ridden in a group or a paceline before. Boulder Cycling Club is open to all riders of all abilities and not all of our members like to ride in a paceline. We’d love to show you the ropes and teach you some good habits and skills to help you become a better cyclist.

Aug 31st, 2012 | By | Category: Cycling News

By: Todd Atkins Buying a road bike can be really overwhelming. There’s a joke that with bikes your options are weight, strength, and price. Pick two of them. Seriously though, everything has a trade-off. Special thanks to Pinarello, Fuji, Specialized, and Mavic for the production photos. Frameset The frame and fork account for the biggest […]

2012 Boulder County Chip Seal Schedule

Jun 7th, 2012 | By | Category: Cycling News

Ok, no one really likes chip seal roads. They are cheaper to maintain for the city and county but can really get on your nerves (literally) when riding. To give Boulder County credit, they recognize how much we dislike the surface and at least use a much smaller aggregate and they say they will sweep […]
