It's time again for the annual BMA Winter Banquet. It's usually the most off the bike bike fun I have in the winter. Great time, great meal, great party and the money goes towards a most excellent cause. The banquet is Feb 6 but I'm posting it now because it sells out early. get your tickets asap! I nicked this off of the BMA website:

4th annual BMA Winter Banquet
at Boulder’s fabulous St. Julien Hotel!
Friday February 6th at 7pm
Once a year, we put our finest threads on and gather with City Council, County Commissioners, public land managers, bike & active sports industry business members, and riders just like you to enjoy each other's company & a tasty dinner prepared by St Julien head chef, and MTBer extraordinaire, Jason Rogers.
In addition to a served sit-down meal, the evening includes silent and live auctions, and plenty of door prizes… including a stay at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa. Mass quantities of your favorite fizzy beverages from Oskar Blues will be on tap as a part of your admission. Other beverages will be available at the cash bar.
So, get cleaned up, put on some fancy clothes, and find out what your friends look like without a helmet. All proceeds go to accomplishing BMA's mission " Better Trails for Boulder County "... so please help us capitalize on the many opportunities coming our way in the next 12 to 18 months.<!-- All proceeds go to the Better Trails Fund so we can capitalize on opportunities coming our way in the next 12 to 18 months. --> Tickets are $75 each.
The auction items run the gamut from totally unique to simply amazing. There are sweet bikes, travel & adventure packages, awesome schwag, and irresistibly cool collectibles in the mix.
