Colorado is a premier bicycling state. To celebrate that fact each June is designated as Bike Month and on the front range, Wednesday, June 23 is designated as Bike to Work Day.

We have some of the best biking trails in the nation. So to encourage you to take up biking, if you haven’t already, we designated this as our Biking edition. And as quality biking articles just keep pouring in, stay tuned, we may even have additional biking articles in our next edition. In this edition, look for articles on TIPS FOR BEGINNING CYCLISTS by Bike Sports, BIKING — BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT by Brave New Wheel, BIKING TO A STEP BACK IN TIME by History Now (on historic sites you can cycle to) and GREAT LOCAL RIDES by Recycled Cycles.

If you’re new to biking, take heart! In addition to great trails, in Northern Colorado we have some of the best resources for the avid cyclist as well as folks just getting started as bikers — they’re here to help you.

Happy Trails!
