Calling all mountain bikers to two events this week
The Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association is hosting a movie screening this week and urging supporters to help clean up an important roadway.
The association will host Membership Movie Night on Friday at Roaring Fork High School in Carbondale. The movie “Rider and the Wolf” will be screened after a presentation on recent trail-planning and advocacy efforts.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The event starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $5 for current and renewing members and $10 for all others. All tickets will be sold at the door for cash or check only.
A membership to the mountain-bike association starts at $35 for adults and $20 for those younger than 18. They will be available at the event.
The movie is the story of Mike Rust, one of six Irish brothers who fell in love with bicycles in Colorado. “Mike the Bike” helped create the interest for bikes in the rough mountain town of Crested Butte, leading to the sport called mountain biking. Rust was inducted into the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame in 1991.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
He later moved to the remote San Luis Valley to pursue his dreams of sustainable living in the mountains. Some men broke into his house one night, and he attempted to chase them down. He has never been seen again.
On Saturday, members of the mountain bike association are urged to help out with the 17th-annual Prince Creek Clean-up. Prince Creek Road is the gateway to a popular singletrack trail network.
The cleanup will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Participants are asked to meet at McIntyre’s Red Barn, 1625 Prince Creek Road. Bring water, work gloves, a shovel or rake.
Some participants plan to ride the Prince Creek trail system after the cleanup.
