Well, last month, it appeared that Spring was going to come much earlier than normal, but alas, Mother Nature never disappoints here in Colorado. The snow arrived with bitter cold winds and shows us again who is in charge, and how unpredictable the weather can be. Even Nevada and Arizona weathered unprecedented storms and towns like Las Vegas and Flagstaff were blanketed with inches of snow. [Read more…] about Winter is Still with us!

February is upon us, the holidays are over, and we all said goodbye to 2018 and HELLO to 2019! Most of us are anxiously waiting for Spring to arrive so we can get back out and Ride. However, it doesn’t seem sometimes like we live in Colorado anymore. Whether you believe in global warming or not, and as a 10-year resident of Colorado, it does appear that our winters are getting warmer and riding is more frequent in the winter months.

Colorado Rider News is celebrating our 1-year anniversary, and as I look back on where we started and where we are this December,

The holidays are less than 60 days away. It’s a time where you wonder where the year went? It is also a time that no matter how stressful your life has been in 2018 and you are ready to put 2018 behind you, it is also a time for giving and motorcycle riders are always the most giving individuals I have ever met.

October is always the month that makes me wonder where the year went. The mountains are getting a dusting of snow and Christmas is only 90 days away. In a couple of weeks, I will begin BikerDown’s Adopt a Family for the Holidays, and in a blink of an eye, The Children’s Hospital Toy Run will be upon us.

September is the beginning of our fall season. The nights are getting cooler, the leaves are beginning to change, and soon we’ll be adding layers of gear when we ride. We are a little over 100 days until Christmas, and soon you’ll begin to wonder, “Where did the summer go?” [Read more…] about Distracted drivers cause 40 accidents per day in Colorado
August is here and it’s Sturgis time! Many of us are going on our last motorcycle vacations of the season, and we are taking those vacations with our families. After enduring the hottest riding season that I can remember, it is good to know that fall is just around the corner and cooler temperatures are coming.
Speaking of Sturgis, I never know what is happening on any given day until it is too late, so Colorado Rider News has included a calendar of entertainment, activities and bike contests. Don’t forget Dirty Dogs Roadhouse has their bar open for business, so make sure you stop in and check it out! Let’s show them our Colorado support.
Every month we try to mix it up and try new things. This month we have some amazing veteran events coming up after Sturgis with The Salute to American Veterans in Cripple Creek, CO, and the Combat Vets upcoming event for American Military Families.
After running this publication for 7 months, the giving nature of this motorcycle community for charities and families in need never ceases to amaze me. Colorado Rider News will try every month to help these charities get their message out.
Rider Justice – Our community is getting ready for an amazing new organization here in Colorado. Rider Justice is going to make a difference in this riding community
On a final note, BikerDown and Randy’s Run for Fallen Bikers have partnered to help bikers better. Both organizations feel that this will enable us to offer more effective services for the betterment of the injured rider community.
As always, please let us know what’s on your mind. Whatever you ride, Colorado Rider News wants to talk about what’s important to you. Send me an email with your suggestions: info@ ColoradoRiderNews.com or feel free to make comments on our website!
No matter what, RIDE SAFE OUT THERE!

Why is everyone so angry? When did the interpretation of Freedom change to “I have a right to HATE on someone because they have a different opinion”? When did the Internet and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter become the correct form of expression for paragraph after paragraph of venomous posts about something that someone did or said? We criticize our children for Cyber-bullying, but everyday someone is on the internet is hating on someone else. [Read more…] about When did a difference of opinion become hate and anger?
As an avid rider and Founder of BikerDown, a non-profit that supports motorcycle riders who have been injured, May: Motorcycle Awareness Month is a big deal to me. Each year the number of deaths for riders on Colorado roads continues to grow, and we must do everything we can to stop – and reverse – that trend!
