Hello and Welcome to The Group Ride.
Over the years the cycling scene in Fort Collins has grown and become stronger, however; in that time it has also become fragmented. Group rides, races, and other events often happen without all interested parties being aware. One of the goals of this site is to give the Fort Collins racers a central place to inform and get informed. We need your help to make this site successful. Please send us emails about cross races, local time trials, mtb trails, the status of the velodrome. We also want to hear how local racers do while racing locally, nationally, and even internationally. Feel free to post race accounts, epic training rides, race pictures, videos, even talk some trash-basically anything you feel the rest of us may be interested in.
If you have anything you would like to post please let us know. This site won’t work without input from the cycling community.
The Group Ride was also established to promote the rides that made Fort Collins the cycling powerhouse that it is today. The Wednesday Worlds Ride and the Oval Ride are the cornerstones of Fort Collins racing. However, in recent years, the numbers at these rides have begun to dwindle. In order to continue to produce the best racers in the state we need to roll out to these rides in full force. Yes, sometimes it’s easier to do a different ride, but in F.C.C. we don’t do things the easy way. (thanks for the line AC)
In order to increase the desire for these local rides we plan on incorporating the always-popular helmet cams. It will be great entertainment and maybe even educational to see these rides from a different vantage point. Eventually we hope to award prizes to the winners of these weekly rides from local businesses.
For the success of the page we could also use the help of avid cross racers, mountain bikers, and track racers to run their respective pages. It would be impossible for one or two people to stay on top of all of this.
Thanks and Enjoy!
Note: if any local businesses would like to become weekly sponsors of these rides please let us know. We are looking for something valued at around $25.00. In return, the business will get their logo, a link and a company write-up on this site. This will be housed on the homepage for the week and after that on our sponsor page for the rest of the year. The link to your website will also show up on every page.
