Store is now closed. Look for jerseys to arrive in mid-May.
We have worked with Primal to finalize the jersey designs (see examples below) and you can now place your order online at the Primal Custom Pro Store. To order, you will have to create an account or if you already have one, you can login here. Please be sure to use the Firefox or Chrome browser. Apparently, other browsers are not supported by Primal's ordering system.
The store will be open until Midnight on Thursday, March 19th, so please be sure to place your order prior to that.
Again, the jerseys will be sold at our cost of $56 and are available in a unisex Mountain version (loose fit, no front zipper, zipped rear pockets) and Sport Cut (more traditional front zipper jersey with 3 rear pouch pockets) in both Men's and Women's styles. Jerseys will be shipped to us in bulk, to save on shipping costs, and we will make arrangements to distribute them. The jerseys should arrive sometime in mid-May.
If you do not already know your size, please come by one of out two remaining fitting sessions with the Primal fit kit. The first session will be held from 5-7pm on Wednesday, March 11th at Performance Bicycles, 2407 South College (University Plaza), Fort Collins. We will have an additional session Thursday, March 12th, 6:15-8pm at Cranknstein, 2158 North College, Fort Collins.
Overland member Ronny Bush has graciously offered "Bush Acres" (his backyard with it's awesome mtb/cyclocross course) to the club for the evening of Monday, July 22nd. See location info on the calendar entry.
We will be gathering at 7:00pm to discuss club business, ride the course (Bring your bike!), eat food and just hang out.
For potluck- if your last name ends with A-E bring appetizers, F-K main dish/entrée, L-R salad/side, S-Z dessert and bring your own beverages. It should be a great time. We hope to see you there.
Looks like the Mother Nature doesn't like our Social Rides anymore. The word this week is that the "official" ride is cancelled, but Bill H will be at the Blue Sky trailhead should anyone want to brave the conditions. As always, please be careful to not damage the trails.
IT IS TOUR DE FAT TIME - AND WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP
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.
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.
I enjoyed the twists and turns, ups and downs of
40 in the Fort Mountain Bike Race Returns!
Two tough laps.
7,000 feet of climbing.
July 7th, 2012.
Join us for the 2012 version of the 40 in the Fort. A mountain bike endurance race that will challenge your legs, you lungs, and your handling skills. We had so much fun doing the first one, we thought we'd do it again.
As one racer put it last year, "Finally, a real mountain bike course."
A couple of things:
1. The course will be altered and details will be released closer to the race. The Mill Creek climb has been removed, but don't fret. We have a few other surprises in store.
2. A limited number of riders will be able to ride in the "Just for Fun" class. Two riders will team up. Each rider will do one lap. We added this to make the race even more accessible to riders with less experience.
Warmer weather and longer days are just around the corner which means mountain bikers can start to SHRED! Our Spring Celebration is just around the corner. Save the date. Tell your friends. Food! Fun! Refreshments! And of course, lots of information.
More info on its way but for now, save the date:
March 7th @ 6:30 p.m.
At New Belgium - our wonderful sponsors.
Bring a friend, bring a date, bring a bike. We don't care, just show up!
More than 70,000 people came to play at Tour de Fat, helping to continue
bicycle advocacy and environmental stewardship
The section of the Foothills Trail we all know as Shoreline got a nice little face lift on Saturday thanks to about 25 volunteers working closely with Larimer County trail staff. Thanks to everyone who came out. And the Social Ride to enjoy the work was quite fun too. Speaking of Social Stuff, more info about this Monday night’s shenanigans are just around the corner. Keep reading…
Speaking of trail work, this Saturday, Oct. 23rd, we’ve got another trail day at Bobcat Ridge. Steve and Doug have a great day of work planned. Overland members who plan on attending, please sign up on the Event Sign Up in the Member Resources section.
