ABOUT ROLL 2005-2018
ROLL was established to use existing organizations and groups to build an identity for the cycling community in the Pikes Peak Area and throughout the Front Range. Our fourteen-year role in the community has been to support cycling community along the front range in towns like Salida, Pueblo, Fountain, Monument, Woodland Park, Manitou Springs, Castle Rock, Denver, Englewood, Aurora, Arvada, Boulder, Niwot, Longmont, Louisville, and Colorado Springs.
Promoting both Art and Physical Fitness is the creative goal of ROLL BIKE. Together, these pursuits enhance our quality of life. In fourteen years of productions, ROLL BIKE has partnered with one-hundred-thirty-nine unique organizations and eighteen venues.
Rawkus and ROLL will feature prizes provided by sponsor Ted’s Bicycles.
Best of Show, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and People's Choice Award as well as the 80’s Throwback Costume Contest Parade champs will be announced on May 19 at 1 PM. Thank you, Tony and Joetta, for make an exhibit that will be Totally Tubular! See you Saturday, May 19!

ROLL weather update by Tom Barber:
Strong winds from the North buffet Colorado Springs. Temp at noon 45 deg. High overcast, with a veiled Sun. A great storm rages off to the East. A deep surface low spins on the Kansas/Nebraska border. Counter clockwise rotation of the Low is bringing in much colder air from the North into Eastern Colorado. On Thursday it was 75deg in the Springs, 79 Denver and Ft Collins. 83 down in Pueblo, where there was a large grassfire out near Boone east of Pueblo. Today will be in the 30s and 40s.
Unfortunately for the Front Range, little moisture is expected as the storm is just off to our East. Snow and blowing snow are occurring from about Limon northeastwards. Blizzard conditions are developing on the far northeastern plains and the storm will roar northeast towards the Dakotas and Minnesota and Michigan. Over a foot of snow could fall in these areas.
South and east of the Low, very warm, unstable and moist air is being pulled up from the Gulf of Mexico. The dew point in Tulsa OK has reached 63 deg. Severe thunderstorms will erupt as the cold air collides with the tropical air. Expect thunder, lighting, heavy rain, hail and tornadoes over eastern Oklahoma, Texas and the Mississippi River Valley as this Spring storm moves eastwards. For CoS look for a few rain and snow showers this afternoon and tonight. Sat. looks sunny, chilly 50s and windy.

Meir speaks about the need to reach homeostasis when treating eye strain. The body needs to reach some level of balance on a regular basis.
The latest artwork for Amy's new book, "Playing for Peep", was completed on Fri., Mar. 2. Eight illustration drawings are completed, with only two left to go! I will be finishing the remaining drawings in July and August.
This illustration is based on Karen Pryor's "10 Laws of Shaping". My twist is I set the laws to the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!" Check out my other illustration drawings by clicking the "Playing for Peeps" tab!
