Racing is only 3 days away. We will be marking course on Saturday afternoon so come on out and join us. Once again, the venue will be similar to last time and is a very friendly, safe and spaced out venue. The start area will be plenty large and allows for proper staging separation. Once again, due to popular demand (not), the finish line will be at the top of the steep dirt road and you can roll into a big grassy meadow at the completion of the race. Registration is at the "Mill House" and will [...]

Most towns in the Colorado Rockies began as mining camps and supply depots. 303 visited some of the most rugged and historical towns in Colorado looking for cycling and recreational opportunities—especially ones maybe not as well known and not on the I-70 corridor. Our journey originally started in Buena Vista.
Part two began with a climb out of Lake City over notorious Slumgullion pass. It’s not only home to the Alfred Packer grisly tale of cannibalism (did you know he missed hanging by de [...]
It’s so natural for us to want to zero in on the simplest thing. “If my butt hurts, it must be my saddle”. “If my foot hurts, it must be my shoes”.
Have you ever taken the time to consider how many points of contact you have with your bike? Saddle, handlebars, pedals. All three must be in harmony with one another for a strong foundation in how your bike “fits” you, not to mention the physical factors of our back muscles and overall core stability/strength.

I read a review of “The Canterbury Tales.” It read something like “...this is a great book to read before bedtime, helps yo [...]
