On Saturday, a number of us took a ride up to Jamestown after the road opened back up on May 1. The weather was near perfect. While my personal experience was somewhat somber, we saw many smiling faces from the residents of James Canyon.
Saturday March 29, 2014 About a dozen BCC members showed up for the first Saturday morning training ride of the season. We met at Roy’s house for a chilly start under cloudy skies, much colder than predicted by the NWS. Fortunately, there were bagels and juice to give a few extra calories of heat to […]
For the 2014 cycling season, we’ve altered the format of our Tuesday night rides slightly. This season, we’re introducing the “no-drop 2.0” policy. We’ll still leave from Boulder Beer at 5:30, but we’ll have a pre-assigned sweep on every ride, as well as a number of Ride Ambassadors. Each route will have a number of […]
Boulder Cycling Club and Wednesday Morning Velo are excited to present Cyclists 4 Jamestown. A fundraiser on October 19 to benefit Rebuild Jamestown. There will be auctions, raffles, rides with local pro cyclists, live music, and more. Head over to c4jtown.org to see a full list of events, donate, or volunteer.
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.
By: Todd Atkins I have been using the Motorola MOTOACTV (8GB) for about a year now. I wanted to give it a thorough testing before I put my thoughts together for a review. It’s a handy and unique device that excels in some areas and fails in others. I give it 3.5 stars out of […]
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 […]
The biggest cycling event in decades is coming to Boulder and we want to meet up, warm up with brunch and mimosas, and then leisurely ride our bikes down the Boulder Creek bike path to town (2 ½ miles) to catch all the day’s events. This is a members-only event. Current 2012 members have already […]
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 […]
Come on, admit it. You had at least one of these questions when you first got into cycling. Much of this post is tongue in cheek but it actually does answer a large number of questions that many new cyclists have and are just too embarrassed to ask. Let me know in the comments if […]
