COFFEE STOPS & CYCLING ADVOCACY

BY Full Cycle Intern

Keeping a sense of community in the midst of a pandemic...

CROSS-EXAMINATION

BY KRISTIN WEBER

"And then in walks Cyclocross. Her timing is impeccable and she is just the right amount of everything we need. Thank you for being the one thing that makes us focus on nothing else for 45 minutes. We can live in the moment in the most present way possible, a moving mediation, breath in, breath out."


DAVID'S IBIS HAKKA MX CUSTOM BUILD

BY Full Cycle Intern

This build has been quite the head turner around the shop. David came to us wanting to build a fast yet functional all-road machine equally capable of hanging in group rides, shining in gravel races, and chewing up rowdy terrain. Introducing David's Ibis Hakka MX custom build! 

ANTON'S LONGS PEAK FKT

BY ANTON KRUPICKA

"This kind of thing is easy to dismiss as a silly game, but what I think is not silly is taking a crack at something that you know will be hard, the outcome is not certain, and committing to trying your best regardless."

6h 55' 36" | 91 miles |  12k ft elevation | 14k feet summit


WEEKEND PREMONITIONS, VOL 2

BY LUKE J MILLS

With sand in our eyes we loaded our bikes into the back of Trevor’s Honda Element. Leaving expressly before a smoky dawn, we drove a few miles to the eventual start of our ride. “This feels like cheating,” I admitted. 

FATHER & SON BONDING AT VALMONT BIKE PARK

BY JEFF & NOLAN stone

We rented some full-suspension mountain bikes from Full Cycle and spent the day riding together at Valmont Bike Park in Boulder. It was great!10/10 would recommend renting from Full Cycle!"


WHY DO YOU RIDE?

BY PETE CAHALANE & BECCA BROUGH

"We can quickly shift our love of cycling into an obsession of progress.  This can be in the form of racing, chasing Strava segments, or thinking more is always better. [...] After weeks of specific training, we opted to take our own advice and went in search of adventure!"

MT EVANS FROM BOULDER & BACK...THE HARD WAY!

BY Kyle Richardson

"Ride out via SuperFlag - 68J - CR97 - S.Beaver - OMG - Echo - Mt Evans, and back via Squaw Pass (this needs a new name asap) - LookoutMtn - 93 - Boulder. This has got to be one of the best rides one can do from their front door in the Front Range. So much fantastic riding. SUMMER!"

141 miles. 16k feet. 10h 47m. 


WEEKEND PREMONITIONS, VOL 1

BY LUKE J MILLS

"With the Dog Days of Summer fully in effect and increasingly frequent sweltering temps on the Front Range, the allure of the high country’s cool weather became undeniable. Friday afternoon found me loading the camper van and making a tolerably early departure for the Indian Peaks  Wilderness..."

riding alone, together

BY KRISTIN WEBER

"Even when riding alone, I feel a part of something bigger –something moving and progressing toward a greater end. "Perhaps that end is a clear head, free of the anxiety of the news, work stress, kids at home, the concerns of life. Whatever it is that drives us out on our bikes, it feels as if we are doing something tangibly helpful in healing our sense of grief for a time we may not know again anytime soon."


LUKE'S SWISS ARMY KNIFE OF CYCLING

BY LUKE J MILLS

A mountain bike, road bike, and gravel bike walk into a bar…and the Kona Sutra is born! “If you’re a minimalist like me and just want one bike to do it all, I couldn’t recommend this bike more highly. It’s the Swiss Army Knife of cycling."
