Biking Through Farms

BRS Bike Outing

Farm biking: not quite mountain biking, a step removed from road biking, and a great way to get outside with your work colleagues!

Our latest adventure took place at Teller Farms, a wonderful mixed-use trail that is part of the City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks system. The trail, about 10 miles roundtrip, is nestled among crops and pastures in the undulating high prairie before the scenic foothills rise to the west. This being my first out-of-office excursion with my new coworkers, my main goal was to not be left in the dust by the avid cyclists at BRS. In the process, I was schooled in the art of avoiding cow pies at high velocities and learned just how easily conversations could turn from architectural jargon to bike component geekdom.

Finding respite from the scorching afternoon sun in the cool evening breeze, I coasted to the finish line as rumors flew of a hotly contested race between Frank and Angelo for the fastest trail time. The day concluded with some rewarding grub and a refreshing beer at Oskar Blues Grill & Brew in Lyons. What a great way get to know my new cohorts! Thank you, farm biking, for bringing us a little closer and making us a little smellier.
