From September 19 through 23, 2018, ABATE of Colorado hosted hundreds of bikers for the annual Meeting of the Minds conference. What an amazing gathering of caring bikers from around the country! Everywhere you turned, bikers were greeting each other with hugs, questions about family members, big barks of laughter, and a few embraces of condolence. Such a warm, passionate, loving gathering of bad-ass bikers! [Read more…] about Motorcycle Rider Foundation Brings Bikers Together in Denver
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am a motorcycle enthusiast and love to ride with other like-minded bikers, sharing the same passion. I love to volunteer and help with charities and those in need.
How long have you been riding and what do you ride?
I have been riding for sixteen years and ride a 2009 Road King, 2016 Road Glide, and 2012 Heritage. [Read more…] about Women Who Ride
On September 21, Friday night around 5 p.m., after an afternoon motorcycle ride, we stopped at the Piper Inn, 2251 South Parker Road in Denver.
We parked our motorcycles in the designated area in front by the main door. Both sides of patio (non-smoking and smoking) were full as well as the bar and table inside. Lucky for us a patio table on the nonsmoking side opened for us to sit. [Read more…] about The Piper Inn

The “It’s All About the Kid’s” Day that was hosted by Bullying Enns and UBAKA (Urban Bulldogs Against Kid Abuse) was an incredible event to attend.
Joy, absolute joy, is what was expressed on pretty much every kid’s face.
The hamlet of Cynthia has a population of 50.
Mitch’s Campground and RV Park is where the event was held.
They have a small motel, a pub called the Cyn City Saloon, and a few other small businesses, and that’s about all.
What the community lacks in size, it makes up for in heart. [Read more…] about It’s All About the Kids Day
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
I’m seeing a disturbing trend. Actually, this shady insurance practice has been going on for a long time but I used to only see it with the… shall we say… less respectable insurance companies. Now, I’m seeing it across the industry. [Read more…] about Don’t Get Punked by Your Insurance Company

BikerDown was founded in November of 2011 with the mission of helping injured riders in Colorado. Nothing could have ever prepared this nonprofit for the journey ahead and the diversity of the riders that we would meet. This mission has changed so drastically since 2011 as BikerDown continued to grow. Never did I anticipate that we would be so actively involved with an injured rider’s family and friends. I never anticipated the need for this nonprofit would be so great that we would help over 65 families with their motorcycle fatalities and over 150 accident help requests just within the state of Colorado in 2017.
