What we're about

Our goal is to encourage more people to ride more often and provide as many opportunities for that as possible.

We try to be inclusive and provide rides for cyclists of all ability levels. Read this to learn how we rate our rides: http://tinyurl.com/87s2bme

If you are a new or returning cyclist, we hope you will find some rides scheduled here that match what you want to do. If not, please email Buzz, our organizer, or suggest a ride on the home page. All members can suggest and create rides.

If you are located in or near Longmont and would like to help us organize rides in this area, I would be happy to make you an Event Organizer... If you have requests or ideas for rides, let me know. Event Organizers are needed to lead both road and mountain bike rides. It doesn't take much to lead a ride... you just have to show up.

Bicycle Friendly Driver class

Shoes & Brews

Why do bicyclists do what they do/ride where they ride? Bicycle Colorado, in conjunction with the City of Longmont's Traffic Safety Program presents the first Bicycle friendly Driver class in Longmont! The Bicycle-Friendly Driver program is designed to teach all drivers the best ways to share the road with people riding bicycles. The 1.5-hour, interactive class covers the following topics: Common causes of crashes between motorists and bicyclists and how to avoid them Legal and illegal behavior for motorists and bicyclists How to navigate on-street bicycle infrastructure like shared lanes, bike lanes and green paint Why sharing the road is often the safest option for both motorists and bicyclists Upon successful completion of the class, participants will receive a Bicycle-Friendly Driver certificate and sticker to display on their vehicle.

Rusty Dusty Riders -

Longmont Senior Center

Calling seniors (self-imposed) who have a rusty, maybe a dusty bike, or feeling like your body is rusty and dusty? We will start SLOW - review some basics, perform safety checks, choose routes and finish with a comfortably paced ride - maybe even to coffee or ice cream? Bring your bike, your helmet, a water bottle and be prepared for some serious FUN! Please note we have a new (indoor) location - still dress warmly as it may be cool when we leave. We will do some safety work inside then head outside on a ride to put into place all that we learned! Depending on weather, we may ride to coffee or enjoy it afterwards! And . . . it's FREE! Please note: this will be cancelled if we do not reach the minimum of 4 participants! Bring your friends!
