Guest Blog: Bamboo Through the Ages

by Drew Haugen

By Reese Ruland (@reeseruland) My childhood home, situated on a large corner lot, had your typical single family four-bedroom, three-bath layout.  And, as is the case with most suburban neighborhoods, there were likely ten or more similar houses scattered throughout the neighborhood.  But ours had one glaring difference from the rest: the yard. Off to the side of the house, … Read More »

Adventures in Bikepacking: Overnight of Timber Trail

by Drew Haugen

Words and images by Adam Blake One of my favorite overnights is climbing to the top of Timber Trail in Lory State Park.  The route is challenging, forcing you to hike, bike, and trudge your way to the top.  The entire trip is about 35 miles and has about 3,000 ft of elevation gain; 2600 up to the top.  I’ve … Read More »

Meet Vijay

by Drew Haugen

  When did you start riding bikes? I started riding back in 2010.  As an overweight teenager, I knew I needed to change my lifestyle for the better. It all started when a buddy of mine invited me out for a mountain bike ride.  I reluctantly agreed, and after the 6-mile ride I felt like I was going to pass … Read More »

Five miles into the infamous Crusher in the Tushar I realized I hadn’t ridden my SL-G more than four times since competing in the equally infamous Dirty Kanza 200, more than a month prior…and I was heading into over 10,000’ of climbing with some of the best bike racers in the United States. At one edition of the Crusher, Boo … Read More »

Dirty Kanza 200: Peanut Butter & Daggers

by Nick Frey

For those of you who read my last post Fake It Till You Make It, you’ll know that I had a game plan going into the infamous Dirty Kanza 200…a bit of mental trickery, if you will. Or maybe logical pragmatism? Whatever one may call it, I had no idea how important it would be for me to truly believe … Read More »

Fake It Till You Make It: Dirty Kanza 200

by Nick Frey

I’ve toed the line at some pretty big bike races. Some of them had climbs of over 6000’ with more than 40 switchbacks. Other races featured multiple Tour de France winners, elbowing me just like any other Joe Schmo on a bike. I’ve been so scared I was in the bathroom up until a few minutes before the firing pistol … Read More »

Guest Blog: Shiner GASP Century Ride

Words and images by Chad Schneider I first learned about Boo Bicycles two years ago while watching the Pro Cycling Challenge.  The Boo Bus was parked on the westside of Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins, Colorado next to the Rapha bus.  They were letting people take their bikes out for a test drive and serving some of Fort Collins’ local … Read More »
