Fall is one of my favorite times to ride a bike. Any bike ride just seems better with crisp air, falling leaves, blue skies, and cool air.

Last year he got a snowboard but he preferred to build jumps at the local park and ride it rather than go to a ski resort. This has been fine with us since we are not big resort skiers. Living in Boulder for years we gave up the I70 drive to resorts a long time ago. Since living in
