Winter Bike to Work Day - February 10, 2023
The club will have a booth for Winter Bike To Work day at the south side of the CSU Oval, the same as we had last year. We will be handing out club stickers and cycling maps. Last year was a lot of fun and there were plenty of free snacks and swag to grab. If you are interested in helping volunteer for this event, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Club Camping Trip - August 18-20, 2023
The board decided that August 18-20 2023 will be the dates of this year's camping trip. We have two locations in mind, Hermit Park or YMCA of The Rockies, both in Estes Park. Mark your calendars and we will keep you informed of what is decided!
Ride the Rockies - June 11-16th
Ride the Rockies is an annual Colorado event and this year it starts and ends in Fort Collins. This event is not related to any FCCC events, but a few members usually attend each year. It's a multi-day camping + biking event totalling just over 300 miles and 27,000 feet of elevation across 6 days. See the route details here. It goes without saying that this is a very physical event and a great goal to aim for this cycling season. It costs $550 to join and includes a jersey, campsites, luggage hauling and more. Take a look and see if you’re up to the challenge!
Ride On (and be careful on slippery roads)!
