Ides of March marks the start of Golden’s Cycling Season

The Golden Cycling Club is getting prepared to roll into another season.

Often confused with an ancient Roman holiday, the Ides of March actually marks the start of Golden’s cycling season.

The annual exodus of pasty skinned Goldenites south to Moab, Fruita, Hurricane, Sedona and points south will be in full swing.

They will return bronzed and bruised and looking for more.

Unfortunately our local trails will likely still be covered with a blanket of crusty snow.

Fortunately the Golden Cycling Club anticipates this angst and will host an Events Night on April 3.

The first annual GCC Events Night will take place at Golden’s newly renovated Civic Centre.

Admission is free and treats and beverages are cheap and you’ll even see a free movie.

Better yet, since Golden’s trails belong to everyone, whether you have running shoes, boots, a horse or a bike you will be welcome.

They only request that you lend an ear to a brief discussion of what they hope to achieve in 2012 and beyond.

As for the picture, that could be you!
