Front Rangers Ride
Last Wednesday, Nick and I were invited to join the Front Rangers for their weekly ride. The Front Rangers is a Colorado Springs base junior cycling team with athletes focusing on the both the road and mountain side of the sport. We met up with the mountain team to go over some skills like passing and switchbacks and generally just have fun on two wheels. It was awesome to see so many kids ready to ride and learn. So many different skill levels, different bikes and different ages, but all eager to hit the single track. Nick took the faster group and I hung back with the b group, but we all got practice on some of the gravelly trails of Cheyenne Canyon. Mostly photos!
