Getting Your Groove Back: Shape Up Tips
On February 27, I gave birth to my son Henry. Up until then I spent much of my pregnancy moving: walking, yoga, lifting light weights. But I gave up rigorous, get-your-heart-racing exercise when I was five months pregnant. It was too hard for me to keep running and biking with short breath, a bulky body...
Gear of the Week: Yakima Swing Daddy
The Swing Daddy is a fine-tuned, accessorized rack that true bike geeks will love. From the integrated lock to the built-in bottle openers, the engineering on this carry-all anticipates everything a cyclist could ask for, including the ability to swing completely out of the way (even when loaded with...
How To: Avoid a run-in with wildlife
Where the Wild Things Are On Sunday, I huffed and pushed my way up Flagstaff Road, a torturous climb on a road bike that rises above some of Boulder's legendary open space. Twenty minutes into the climb my heart pounded in my chest like a drum. Thirty minutes, I had to stop and gulp air. Forty...
Gear Friday: Yeti 575
An all-mountain bike that rides uphill as well as it bombs downhill trails at Keystone. I pulled up to the gondola at the base of Keystone over the weekend, ready to embark on my first day of lift-accessed downhill mountain biking for the summer. Early season conditions mean the trails are only open...
Top Ten Daring Downhills
Your skis and boards might be in storage until next season-unless you're planning a Southern Hemisphere getaway this summer-but that doesn't mean that mountain life comes to a standstill when you can't play on the snow. When the snow melts, the ground thaws and the mud dries up enough to...
Five Must-Not-Miss Mtn. Bike Rides
After much anticipation and planning, which included coordinating a camping trip with six adults and six children ranging from four months to nine years old, I found myself last week climbing the steady single track of the Monarch Crest trail toward its high point of 11,960 feet. My lungs squeezed...
Your Favorite New Sport: Dog Scootering
Picture yourself riding a kick scooter on a forest service road -- not the sleek kind best suited for navigating concrete corridors, but a burly Diggler mountain scooter, with shocks, handlebar brakes, two BMX wheels, and a skateboard-like deck to stand on. Now add a pair of eager Siberian huskies to...
Top 10 Daring Mountain Bike Downhills
Your skis and boards might be in storage for just a little bit longer, but that doesn't mean that mountain life comes to a standstill when you can't play on the snow. During the summer, mountain biking and hiking fun takes over the terrain in and around the five Vail Resorts . While you're...
The Must-do Fall Road Trip
Living in a ski town, there are certain things you do before winter arrives. Among them: update your gear, make sure your heat works, buy new socks, plan hut trips, drink too much beer at Oktoberfest and, perhaps most important, take a fall road trip. The purpose of the fall road trip is entirely...
