    At this Annual Members Meeting, you can donate your extra bike(s) to Trips for Kids Denver/Boulder! Just bring them to the Buffalo Rose the evening on the meeting (4/9/14) and they will handle the rest! They accept donated bikes of any size or type (mountain, road, hybrid, cross, cruiser, etc.) in fair condition or better (dusty not rusty, please). And they also accept parts, so clean out that garage and donate away!

    Donated bikes are put it to work in their Ride Program or Earn a Bike Program for underserved youth or they sell it at Lucky Bikes Re-Cyclery. Lucky Bikes Re-Cyclery not only helps match youth and families with a new (to them) set of affordable wheels, but all proceeds benefit Trips for Kids Denver.

    Just from a quick perusal of your projects, it appears most of them are focused on the Denver and surrounding areas, or at least the central part of the state (correct me if I'm wrong on this). If this is the case, what plans do you have to expand your activities, such that you'll remain true to the "Colorado" part of your outfit's name.

    Thanks, and good luck with your upcoming event.

    ltspd1,

    Thank you for taking the time to peruse the new website. A lot of work went into it and any and all attention is sincerely appreciated. It's a perfectly fair question. There are great mountain biking organizations across Colorado. Their connection to local land managers and the great trail projects that result are not things COMBA could or should duplicate.

    Likewise our trail stewardship is local, but with our proximity to the capitol of Colorado, we are called upon to speak for mountain bikers at the state level. We have advocated for public land protection bills, the preservation of Recreational Trails Program and GOCO funding, mountain bike access on public lands and National Scenic Trails and the reform of Colorado outdoor recreation liability laws.

    To further this work we are a founding member of Outdoor Alliance Colorado, a state wide human-powered recreation partnership where we coordinate efforts to protect public lands, waters and snowscapes. And COMBA and IMBA's joint funding supports the Colorado and Wyoming Region Director position at IMBA.

    To illustrate COMBA's state level advocacy, consider Senate Bill 67 in the last Colorado legislative session. The bill, intended to regulate motorcycles and ATVs, had mountain bikes inserted into the billís language at the last minute. The addition of mountain bikes into the bill's regulations was well intentioned, but had the unintentional consequence of making many trails on Federal land closed to mountain bikes under Colorado State Law. COMBA was able to meet with the billís sponsor, get an amendment to strike the mountain biking provision and preserve access across the state.

    Maintaining access to public lands and influencing their management Ė like building of trails Ė doesnít happen magically. Iím personally thankful for the work our peers across Colorado put into advocacy, education and trail building and I hope and believe COMBA's work benefits them as well. It isnít work that makes for exciting magazine covers, but Iím proud we do it.

    Thanks,

    Jason Bertolacci
