Massage therapy goes hand in hand with the sheer amount of athletes that
Fort Collins has to offer. The Fort Collins cycling community would
have to be one of the most important reasons we moved to this city. It
is a "Northern Colorado Active Lifestyle Mecca". If you live here, you
know...practically everyone rides, runs, hikes, or generally spends most
of their time outside, thanks to our 300+ days a year of sun. We chose
Fort Collins to relocate for a way of life, and the cycling community
and active racing scene was a huge draw to the area.
We like to share, particularly when it comes to growing our community
and staying active, so here are some of our favorite links to Fort
Collins Cycling Resources...we hope to see you around!
Lee's Cyclery-a north AND south location!
Lee's is known well by the Fort Collins Cycling Community. One
location is on the north side of town in Old Town (corner of Mason and
Laurel), and the southern location is on the SW corner of the Harmony
and Lemay intersection. The staff at both stores can help everyone from
the new recreational rider, to the competitive cyclist. A true
community shop, they have been a fixture here since 1963. There are
also some mountain and road bike ride maps on their site, if you are new
to town. Not to miss is the new Trek Concept store brought to you in
partnership with Lees as well located in Loveland Colorado! Quite the
treat for any bike lover!
Your Group Ride Website
YourGroupRide.com was started by Dan Porter, a well known local cyclist.
Dan has evolved the initial grass roots site into an incredible
resource for all things bike in the Fort. His tag line is 'the guide to
getting dropped in the Fort Collins!' Stop by his site and tell him GTS
Massage sent ya!
Gary uses his sports massage skills on a lot of the area cyclists and unfortunately in turn giving the edge to his competitors! He is on the more competitive side of Fort Collins cycling. He enjoys the faster group rides (as well as his mountain bike rides)...but I have more fun playing away from traffic, usually with a couple of kiddos in tow, either on trail-a-bike, or buggie, on our fabulous trail system. Here is a link to a city map of the Fort Collins cycling trail system, which allows you to travel nearly anywhere in town, without having to ride with the motorists.
