August 27, 2012 by bikekor

The greatest bike party on wheels, the Tour de Fat, is this Saturday, September 1.  We rely on the funds for this event throughout the year. Please sign up now to help and ask a friend to come too. This is our final plea. We really do need your help.

The shifts are short, the event fun, you get a couple of drink tickets and a t-shirt. Thank you.

Sawmill Trail Day and 10 for 10

July 30, 2012 by bikekor

If you've ridden Sawmill trail over at Horsetooth Mountain, you know it's a mess. Overland, in conjunction with Larimer County, has been working towards a sustainable and fun re-route. On two upcoming Saturdays we'll be out working to put the final touches on the trail. Saturday, August 4 and Saturday August 18 we'll grab out tools and head out for some fun in the sun.

So far, we have 13 folks for this Saturday and 3 for the 18. We'd love to see 25 people out each day. Can you give us a hand?

If you can, we'll feed you and make sure you have a great time.

If you remember, we've got a little video and photo contest rolling. So far, this video might be in the lead. It's titled "Weston's Dream Day". Thanks for submitting this Greg. 

Can We Ask You Out? And other weekly tidbits

July 23, 2012 by bikekor

It's the 4th Monday of the month which means it's meeting time. Our meeting for July has been moved to the Rio Grande Mexican restaurant in Old Town due to the Drake Center's closure. We meet upstairs in the Agave Room which is accessed from the outside. Meeting starts at 6:30 and runs until 8 or so.

Jeff Kerkove, of Team Ergon, will talk about his experiences as a professional racer and showing some great pics, etc. Jeff is currently planning on starting the Colorado Trail Race soon.


Monthly Meeting: Venue Change and Jeff Kerkove to present

July 19, 2012 by bikekor

Unfortuntately, the Drake Park Centre has closed its doors. We will return to the Rio and meet in the Agave Room on Monday, July 23.  

Local pro racer, Jeff Kerkove, with Team Ergon will give a presentation and we will socialize afterwards.  Hope to see you there. 

Looking Ahead: Let's camp, Let's fix Sawmill, Let's help

July 16, 2012 by bikekor

I've had the pleasure of getting away a little more this summer. This past weekend we did an adventure race in Breckenridge and then rode parts of the Peaks trail and Colorado trail. If you're not finding time to get out and get away, let's chat. The recharge is worth it. 


Benefit a success, 40 in the Fort news, campout and more

July 9, 2012 by bikekor

RAIN, RAIN.  Some much needed moisture has finally come. I hope none of you have had any flooding or other negative effects from the precipitation. I also hope you've manage to stay off the trails for a bit so that the ground can recover. And believe it or not, you can get a decent workout climbing the dams on your mountain bike. In fact, better than your road bike. Climbing the north dam with fat tires is nothing short of tedious. Anyway, I digress. Looks like we could still get some more rain. This week's social ride could be cancelled. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page and the Overland website.

40 in the Fort - Postponed

June 25, 2012 by bikekor

After much discussion, Overland Mountain Bike Club will postpone the 2nd annual 40 in the Fort mountain bike endurance race due to the High Park fire.

This has not been an easy decision to make, but at this time, we feel it is in the best interest of our volunteers, our racers and the community at-large to move the race to our back-up date of September 15.
