The ever popular (and currently illegal to ride) trail that runs along the canal from Lyons to Boulder Rez is hosting it's first open house Jan 14th at the Boulder County Parks & Open Space Department 5201 St. Vrain Road, Longmont.

Winter Bike to Work Day January 21

Come join Community Cycles in this years Winter Bike to Work Day January 21. Breakfast will be served at 3 stations in Boulder. For those who don't commute once it gets cold out you might find out how easy commuting in the winter can be... that is if mother nature is kind. Contrary to what you think, snow is not the worst thing that could happen on the 21st... wind. The Boulder Parks and Rec do a great job at getting the trails cleared after a snow but that still means you need to be careful in the shaded spots and corners but there is little anyone can do if we have 50-60 mph wind gusts. Another problem is logistics... many in the summer bike to work ride normal day cloths but this will be very unlikely unless your commute is under 3 miles... which then I ask why aren't you commuting already? Take your day cloths to work the day before and maybe have some extra cycling cloths in case the day starts out great but goes south. As a winter commuter in Colorado you always have to keep your eye on the forecast.
