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.  While there's still some great skiing to be had up in the mountains, it's time to start thinking about the upcoming summer season.  Trip sponsors are already busy getting summer trips on the calendar.  We have trips to Canon City, Moab, Buena Vista, Steamboat Springs, and Grand Junction already up!  Talks are progress for visits to Winter Park and maybe Durango!  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
If it is the third Saturday in May, it must be Colorado Public Lands Day.  Celebrate by helping to repair and re-align trails we all know and love.  COMBA's 2016 trail build/repair workdays were phenomenal, with volunteers really ramping up their efforts to help keep the Buffalo Creek trail system in Pike National Forest one of the best in Colorado!  They completed the Little Scraggy Trail and repaired/re-aligned several miles of other trails.  They'll be back at it again in 2017, completing much-needed repairs and critical trail re-alignments on Buck Gulch, Strawberry Jack, Little Scraggy, the Colorado Trail and many of the other 21 trails that comprise the Buffalo Creek system.  Please check out COMBA's website for more information or to register.
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 a comfy vacation home near Buena Vista, 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 most meals, will depend on group size and resulting vacation home (more details to follow).  Whitewater rafting down the Narrows and Browns Canyon costs ~$120 extra.  Due to limited beds, rafters will be given first priority.  Please contact calbiker@live.com to sign up.
Let's kick off the bike season with a trip down south to hit the trails near Canon City and in Lake Pueblo State Park.  Echo Canyon Campground will be our base camp as we make day visits to Oil Well Flats outside Canon City and South Shores Trails in Lake Pueblo State Park.  Costs and accommodations will vary from tent camping to more luxurious cabins, depending on group desires, lodging availability, and weather forecasts.  Please contact calbiker@live.com for more details.
