Super Bike Park opening party time!

Superior Bike Park, Superior CO:

• I am proud of the park layout and build quality (thanks Nick Simcik and Jerad Fischer). Every line flows like love from a benevolent god.

• Tomorrow, Saturday, March 18, we do a little cleanup. We celebrate. We ride.

• Tamping, sweeping and raking 9 a.m. to noon-ish. Come on out. With minimal effort, you can say you helped build the park. Bring a tamper if you have one. Otherwise, bring feet, rakes and shovels. Oh, and push brooms.

• After work, we eat, drink, share the stoke and RIDE OUR BIKES!

Don’t be surprised if there’s a Pump Track World Championship.

The work is done. TIME TO RIDE!

The Carbon Enduro Chronicles: Lookout Mountain

Last Friday I was rolling through Golden on the way back from a meeting in Littleton. My clients and I are working on a 60-page partnership proposal: the kind that determines how I pay my mortgage. It’s a fun and relaxing process. So so fun and relaxing that I was crawling out of my skin needing a ride.

I always see riders parked on the side of Highway 6, and I wonder what they’re up to. Turns out they’re riding a sweet trail.
