If you missed happy hour at our sponsor Fringe Pizza last Wednesday, you really missed out!

Posted on by Venus Bike Club

This past Saturday, May 28th, a Dirty Dozen of us (yeah, we were a little dusty by the end) ventured out on a 25-ish-mile gravel ride and inadvertently found ourselves learning about single track for a couple miles! Then we zoomed down some dirt roads until we got to some proper gravel to groove on. . . . read more

Weather in Colorado can be unpredictable, and storm clouds can build quickly in the afternoon heat. Getting chased by lightning can really take the joy out of a ride — I’ve been there a couple of times, and it is not fun!
