Director's Note

Team members are refining their skills, pushing their limits, maintianing social connections, and applying their creativity during the 12 weeks of Singletrack Solidarity. Despite no in-person racing, members truly appreciate the significance of positive youth development from the saddle of a mountain bike.

I am so grateful that this league has given my son and so many other young adults the opportunity to venture into a new high school sport. I know cycling will be something he will be doing for the rest of his life. - Parent/Coach of a Legacy Senior

To date, more than 1,800 student-athletes participated and more than 150 riders earned their Legacy rider status. This level of engagement is led by over 700 committed coaches. The community of sponsors and board members are dedicated to providing opportunities that positively support the psychosocial development of youth. I invite you to consider joining the Colorado League Board to continue this valuable endeavor. Details about this opportunity are described below.

Wishing you many singletrack smiles,

Kate Rau
Executive Director

Saris - Enter to Win FREE Hitch Rack

Our friends at Saris are donating a Saris MTR-Bike Modular Platform Rack. Voted as "Gear of the Year" by Mountain Bike Magazine. Each MTR rack is built in the USA from American-made steel and aluminum for maximum durability. Roomy wheel trays swallow bike tires up to 5 inches wide for a stable hold, while dual-arm wheel holders keep bikes locked in position – and keep the paint chip-free.

It’s all built on a rugged hitch-based foundation that can be tilted away, when fully loaded with bikes and without, for fast and easy vehicle access.

Plus, the MTR’s nesting bike trays make for easy-on, easy-off loading. No more lifting bikes over the rack – simply flip the trays out of the way as needed to get you from parking lot to trailhead in record time.

You must be a current member of a Colorado League participant family and or Coach to win.
