Tips For Cycling In Winter Time

Winter Biking
Well it looked like we might be in for an early thaw here in Northern Colorado, but despite the local groundhog’s best efforts, it looks like we’re in for a few more weeks of cold.  But ice and snow don’t have to mean your bike must stay tucked away in the garage.
Here are some helpful tips for first time winter bikers, and timely reminders for those who’ve been riding ice for years!

Polaris High School Freshman to ride the Colorado Trail

colorado_trail_signTo whom it concern:
I would like your assistance in raising money for the Fort Collins Bicycle Co-op. I am looking for sponsors who will contribute directly to the Fort Collins Bicycle Co-op as I spend 2 weeks mountain biking the Colorado Trail. I will cover all my own expenses, carry my own gear, ride during the day and camp out along the 500 miles of trail between Denver and Durango.
I felt I could make my 2 week trip even more rewarding by raising money for the Fort Collins Bicycle Co-op. The Bicycle Co-op is a nonprofit organization that promotes the health, environmental and economic benefits of bicycling in Fort Collins and abroad. They do this primarily by collecting and repairing old bikes and reusing them here as well as in developing nations over-seas.
There are several ways you can support my cause for a more bicycle friendly world. You can go directly to the Fort Collins Bicycle Co-op web site and donate on-line or mail a check to the Fort Collins Bicycle Co-op 222 Laporte Avenue Fort Collins, CO 80521. If you prefer you can pledge a donation now, either a set amount or a dollar-per-mile amount and I will collect from you after I finish in July. If you contribute direcly to the Bicycle Co-op please let me know so I can track it.
Thank you for your support. I appreciate your contribution.
Sincerely,
Cassi Mason
