Coloradans who are into cycling are pretty spoiled for choice. We have thousands of miles of mountain highways and bikeways to crush, and all sorts of supported rides to join. The Courage Classic to benefit Children’s Hospital is the nearest and dearest to me. Here are a few reasons I revisited it this past summer and hope to make it a yearly tradition.
In late 2016, I applied for a gig at the Colorado Tourism Office called CHAMP.

I’m a little adrift in uncertainty right now, making decisions about where I want to be and what I want to be doing. I turned to my family for some insight about my nomadism.

America’s favorite TV shows play favorites when it comes to setting – New York City is the hands-down winner.

Some of the funniest TV comedies paint hilarious landscapes of more offbeat parts of the USA. Go visit the real-life setting of these place-centric television hit series. Once you’ve been there, you’ll “get it”.
