Fort Collins cyclists again performed well at Mountain Bike Nationals in Macungie, PA over the weekend. Georgia Gould and Tyson Kaman both took 2nd place in the cross country race, Marie Walsh was 3rd. According to a Facebook post, a poorly timed crash on the final lap allowed Jacob Harris to catch up to defending champion, Tyson Kaman, and contest the sprint. Both riders finished with the same time.
Georgia managed to pull out wins in both the Super D and the Short Track races. Georgia has been spending a considerable amount of time working on her downhill technical skills at the Donkey Hills Mountain Bike park and her win in the final National Championship Super D ever is evidence of that.

Open Streets are temporary events that invite people to experience public streets in ways other than driving. By temporarily closing streets to motorized traffic, Open Streets provide a safe and comfortable space for people to walk, bicycle, jog, rollerblade and play! The City of Fort Collins will host two Open Streets events in 2014 to encourage physical activity, increase active transportation opportunities and build community.
*If you live on the July route, don't forget to move your car off the street the night before the event, July 19! Cars that are still parked on the route at 5am on Sunday, July 20 will be relocated. Vehicles will be relocated to Peterson St between Lake and Pitkin. FC Bikes will cover the cost of relocation.
We need volunteers and would love to have you! Sign up to be a volunteer today: http://www.volunteerspot.com/login/entry/88926404068
Open Streets events promote community pride, local business, air quality, and physical activity, while encouraging the use of streets as a public space for the community to gather and share. With more than 100 documented initiatives in North America, open streets are increasingly common in cities seeking innovative ways to achieve environmental, social, economic, and public health goals.
