The Rocky Mountain Bicycle Boys is a casual club for mountain bikers who love the thrill and camaraderie that comes from off-road riding with their friends. We especially enjoy exploring the endless miles of spectacular, scenic trails of Colorado's unique geography and history.

Gearing up for the Summer Season

We just wrapped up our winter ski trips.  This year we visited the resorts of Steamboat Springs, Winter Park, and Beaver Creek.  As the ski season winds down, it's time to start thinking about the upcoming summer season.  Trip sponsors are already busy getting summer trips on the calendar.  While we just completed our camp trip to Lake Pueblo (check out our pics!), we still have trips to Moab, Buena Vista, Steamboat Springs, and Grand Junction on the books!  Talks are progress for visits to Winter Park or Eagle!  So keep a sharp eye out for any other newly added trips or rides which may spark your interest, and get in touch with any trip sponsor quickly to put in your name.  Our trips can fill up fast.  We want to see you woo-hooing on a trip, not boo-hooing on the sidelines.

Please note that due to extensive derezzing of e-trees, we are no longer producing our monthly electronic newsletter.  So this awesome website is where you'll find the latest news, updates, and maybe some impeccable/incompetent humor that'll make you giggle/groan with utter delight/disgust.  We'll continue to slave away to keep it as current as possible, so please check back often.  Meanwhile, trip sponsors will periodically send out group emails with their latest updates, so please keep looking out for those.  Yes, we do it all for you, because, by golly, you deserve it!

Again, if you have any trip/ride ideas or suggestions on how to better run your club or our website, please let us know at webmaster.rmbb@gmail.com.  Remember: no one listens to your flapping clap trap or clapping flap trap better than the RMBB.  Hmmm, I think that should be our new club motto.

Happy Trails!

Newly Added Events

Instead of the traditional August hut trip, we are going to the CasaColo chalet for this three-night adventure. Located just outside of Fraser, our rental home has a whopping 11 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms with showers, so there should be no need to queue up at the ZODI for public showering on the deck (darn)! Pricing for this trip is $240 per person in a shared room (that's $480 for a couple). This price includes 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners, along with sack lunch fixings for 2 days.

The house has the following bedrooms: 4 king bedrooms; 2 king bedrooms with an additional sleep sofa/futon; 2 queen bedrooms; 1 king bedroom with a bunk bed; 1 double + twin bedroom; 1 bunk room with 3 bunk beds and 3 trundle beds. Bedrooms will be assigned on the following basis: (1) Nobody will be assigned to share a bed except by mutual request; (2) Nobody will be assigned a sleep sofa or futon except by request or coordination; (3) King bedrooms: Couples or those requesting to share a bed; (4) Rooms with multiple beds: Singles; (5) Rooms prioritized based upon order paid.

The break-even for this trip is about 16 individuals. If we have more sign up, the excess will be refunded, with the larger amounts going to those with 3 or more in a room. To sign up, Paypal $240 per person (or $480 for a couple) to daw@swatllc.com.

 

Join SOS Outreach for the 2nd annual mountain bike ride through Beaver Creek Resort, designed to offer recreational and competitive cyclists the opportunity to experience the thrill of competing in a challenging and moderately technical off-road course.  The route follows the traditional XTerra course in a full 17.4-mile loop (with three separate length options available) across Beaver Creek Mountain.  Ride solo or put together your team of cycling amigos for a memorable day of riding to provide opportunities for local youth!  Please see eventbrite for more info or to sign up.
Trek Dirt Series has opened 20 different camps scheduled for 2017 through BC, Alberta, Washington, Oregon, California, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico.  They include women’s specific and co-ed options, cross-country and downhill focuses, and progressive confidence-inspiring instruction for beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders.  Developing skills to make riding more fun is one of our priorities, and leaving people with additional resources and the feeling that they’re part of the mountain bike community is another.  The Trek Dirt Series organization works with a number of charities, scholarship partners, and trail associations such as Athletes 4 Cancer, Runamuk Life, and Whistler Off Road Cycling Association.  Group discounts for camp registrations may be available if you want to sign on as a member of RMBB.  Please contact info@dirtseries.com or visit their website at www.dirtseries.com for more information.
Join the gang for another fun-packed weekend in the heart of Colorado.  We'll stay at the luxurious Cardinal's Nest vacation home in Nathrop, as we explore some of the many exciting adventures to be had in the Arkansas River Valley.  June's a great time for bikes, rafts, and boots as trails are dry, skies warm, and rivers fast!  We'll plan on hitting the whitewater rapids that Friday with our friends from Wilderness Aware Rafting.  Cost for three nights of lodging and some meals will range from $270 to $350/person depending on bedding arrangement.  Whitewater rafting down the Narrows and Browns Canyon costs $113.03 extra.  Sorry, this trip has filled.  Please contact calbiker@live.com to get on the waiting list.
RMBB observes Independence Day with a return to one of our favorite destinations.  Trails in the Yampa Valley surrounding Steamboat Springs offer riding experiences as varied as the scenery.  We'll stay four nights at a private home near the base area and public services.  Accommodations are priced per bed: King bedroom-$600; Queen bedroom-$500; Twin bed-$300.  Sorry, this trip has filled.  Please contact RacerX29er@Gmail.com for more information or to get on the waiting list.
