Thank You for Your Generous Support!

We are honored to announce our 2023 sponsors and as always, are humbled by our community’s generosity. Keep your eyes here – each newsletter issue we will highlight one of our amazing sponsors! 

In this issue, we’d like to recognize Caruso Family Charities.  “Caruso Family Charities is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to assisting families of a child, adolescent, or young adult who is being treated in Colorado for a life-threatening disease or life-altering event. Our mission is to relieve some financial pressures through our Funding Families program so the family may focus on caring for their sick child.”  A big thank you to Caruso Family Charities and to all of our sponsors.  We couldn’t hit our goal without your support!  
If you know of any potential corporate sponsors, please reach out to Amber Dunlap for additional details.

Winter biking resources

Riding a bike when it’s wet and cold can feel daunting if you haven’t done it before. That’s why our education team has put together a variety of resources to help you prepare to ride in the winter months! 

Our cold weather tip sheet shares how you can stay warm and safe while riding in the cold, including how to dress, winter bike maintenance and even tips for riding in the dark. We also encourage you to check out our winter riding video that will teach you all about waterproofing, staying warm and how to adjust your riding tactics to stay safe on those slippery roads!
