The October Bikenridge Useletter is our last of the season. It is also a great time to take advantage of warm afternoons, hero dirt (from the recent precipitation) and empty trails. It’s a great time to visit Breckenridge. Mother Nature can be a little bi-polar at times, but if you watch the weather you can still find a few sunny days of riding on wide-open trails, quiet time by the Blue River and then relax in one of the awesome cafes or restaurants of downtown without a wait! Locals love this time of year!
I am practicing gratitude. As I suffered jet-lag and a cold in a major_way at a meeting I was reminded by a co-worker that I have SO much to be thankful for. It’s true! I live in Breckenridge, Colorado and I just returned from vacationing in southern Italy. Yeah, I have nothing to complain about. Alysa Bajenaru’s “Overflowing with Gratitude” helped me to focus on what is right in front of me and delight in the present.
After a season full of riding, do you think you deserve a little recovery time? Stretching is good for everyone and I have heard over and over again from my rider friends that one of the best things you can do is add Yoga to your program. You could start with these 8 Yoga Poses for Mountain Bikers and then check out Meta Yogas Studios’ Fall Sale – Oct 1 to Nov 15th. Are you sore? Any nagging injuries that just need a little attention? Breckenridge Acupuncture & Massage (Page & Jane). Does retail therapy sound like more your speed? Check out this fun Bike Lover jewelry.
Besides getting a few great rides in before the snow flies, check out some of the great festivals and celebrations in October!
October 15 – The 2016 Fall Festival presented by Breckenridge Grand Vacations – Family Fun at the Riverwalk Center with face painting, pumpkin carving, obstacle courses, bouncy castles, and music.
October 15 – Neighborhood Trail Project – Connect Wellington Trail to French Gulch – 9am to 12pm. Snack/drinks provided by Lincoln Park, A Friends of Breckenridge Trails project. Help create the best connecting trail to French Gulch from downtown Breckenridge.

October 21 – 23 – Dia de Los Muertos Celebration (Day of the Dead) – Breckcreate.org – The Day of the Dead celebration in Breckenridge showcases art workshops, face painting, Latin music, traditions and fun. Love this!
