Bicycle Colorado

I have been living in Colorado for long enough (since 1996) that I started exploring it on bicycle. It helps me with two things: (a) find my own time to think about whatever is on my mind and (b) to enjoy the beautiful Colorado in so many ways. The side effect was keeping my heart healthy along with the fresh air.


This section is about few bicycling events that I did and few that I would love to do...all in Colorado (and nearby). If you have suggestions for me add any events that I am missing here, please send an email to will sure add them to the appropriate list(s).

2012 Calendar of Colorado Cycling Events

Colorado is filled with many Bicyclists all year round. Even at chilling below freezing temperatures, many riders dedicate their energy and lives to the roads and bicycles in Colorado.

Besides being good to your body, the scenaries in Colorado make the soul flourish with new energy and thoughts. It will be impossible for anyone to not think their in new ways when they see these massive mountains that have different characters through out the year. Following is a list of Organized Events that help people who would like to get into bicyclists + They became tradition for many experienced bicyclists in Colorado. Each event that I participated has brought memories that my wife (Anu) and I discuss and cherish. After all, we save money through out our lives for "comfortable" old age living. And, we save memories for "happy" old age living.
