Team Ride Etiquette: Safety and following all traffic laws is a must on all team rides. Any time you are wearing our team kit, you are representing our team. Please act responsibly and as an ambassador for the cycling community and follow these tips. Inconsiderate and unsafe riding during team rides will not be tolerated.
Colorado Bike Law Safety Tips found here: http://colobikelaw.com/tips.php
Bicycling on Colorado’s Roads
Bicyclists have all the rights and duties applicable to the drivers of any other vehicle and can be penalized for violating traffic laws.
- Ride on the right, never ride against traffic
- Ride in the right lane, except when passing another vehicle, preparing for a left turn or avoiding hazards
- Ride on paved shoulders and bike lanes when present and free of hazards
- Ride no more than two abreast, returning to single-file if riding two abreast would impede the flow of traffic
- On curving canyon roads without bike lanes or shoulders, play it safe and ride single file
- Obey traffic laws, signs, and signals
- Use hand signals to indicate left or right turns, slowing or stopping
- Use a headlight, taillight, and reflectors at night
- Make eye contact with drivers
- Never assume motorists see you or that you have the right-of-way
- Wear passive safety equipment to protect yourself: helmet, glasses, and gloves
- Expect the unexpected; your first responsibility is to be safe
Thank you and have fun out there, but most importantly be safe!

- Election of the Board of Directors - Our very own Kim Nordquist is running for the board!
It should be a very interesting meeting, please show up if you would like a little more insight into how the BRAC runs.
Starting in Morrison heading south a solid group of 9 blue and black clad riders tore through tree lined paths and wide avenues littered with only remnants of fallen leaves. The cadence was high and the pressure was on. Each uptick in the road was attacked with ever more fervor but the group maintained its unity. Legs were on fire and the cooling air burned their lungs, but the warmth of comrades on a Wednesday afternoon riding side by side sharing stories and scorching climbs kept the chill from reaching into the bones.
The off-season is just beginning. This is where your stripes are earned.
