Boulder Action Sports Examiner showcases Brevets!

Boulder Action Sports Examiner reporter Peter Wayne from has published a great article (including photos) about our brevets. Have a look! Far from downplaying the edgy idea of night-time starts and distances that can't be covered before lunch, Peter clearly portrays us as a special group, and yet with a milder side which everyone can enjoy.

While you're there, have look at Peter's other articles on the Boulder and regional cycling and athletic scene. Peter is an accomplished sports photographer, and as you see, also a great reporter, too. Hopefully his article will pique interest in our oddball pursuit. :-)

Who's Riding Those Permanents?

Have a look at the newly posted Permanents Log. You'll get a perspective into participation, and see what the most popular routes are! (The mysterious Platteville Rando Vortex could be one factor, of course.)

Speaking of routes: a number of new, scenic, and challenging Permanent routes are making their way through the approval process right now. As summer unfolds and you're wondering what to do with all that hard-won conditioning, these new Permanents may be just the thing!

Stay tuned, and happy riding!


P. S. I won't be available to arrange more Permanent rides until July 13.
