I'll do my best to make the show in Colorado. I've never been there and I have received a personal invitation to attend to represent the San Die go Custom Bicycle Show. Sounds like a real good time!

Well Mike W. beat me to announcing this to the group!
The Rocky Mountain Bicycle Show is really shaping up to be quite the eve nt
this year.Â There is a vintage element to it, and I've been enliste d b y the folks organizing the show to help them with that.Â Once I get a
handle on the scope of the show, it will be great if CR and the local Co lor ado vintage folks can help out with the display.Â Plus, it sounds l ike there will be prizes for entered bikes as well!
The venue for the show isÂ great, and the show's timing is fantastic ! Â Colorado families areÂ typically are in town that time of yea r ( Colorado schools are back in session early), but the rest of the country is in vacation mode.Â Why not bring the family to Colorado?Â In Aug ust, the riding is great in the mountains.Â In the metro area, one can get up at the crack of dawn, ride for a number of hours until the heat com es on, then head over to the bike show!Â And the chances of being w ash ed out from rides that time of year is really remote.Â
The key to a successful show is getting the folks to display, and folks to
view.Â The show this year is putting the PR into overdrive, with th e i ntent of building a show with true national appeal.Â And heaven kno ws, there are a tremendous number of cyclists in Colorado - in what other c ity does a swap meet draw over 10,000 people? (that is how many usually flo w t hrough veloswap).
I'll announce this more in the future, but if any CR folks want to come to
Colorado and want help planning their trip, I'm happy to assist in any w ay
possible.Â If there is CR interest, perhaps I can coordinate some C R a ctivities - maybe some rides or gatherings.Â So put the date on you r c alenders and come visit!
