ABOUT ROLL 2005-2019
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 nineteen venues.
17 people attended Monday's Bike Friendly Driver course, including 4 League Certified Instructors. The public is welcome to attend Bicycle Colorado's free course, but you must register. If you would like to learn to teach a class, go to bicyclecolorado.org today or email email@example.com. This course is offered in partnership with Bike Colorado Springs.

Check out the ROLL weather update, courtesy of Tom Barber:
Low clouds, icy winds from the north. 32 degrees here in Colorado Springs this Saturday morning. A cold front moved through the Pikes Peak region early this morning. It looks like the heaviest snow will be to the north of Denver up in Wyoming. Places like Ft. Collins and Estes Park will get a few inches of snow, with the heaviest falls up in the Northern Mountains. Down here look for fog, freezing drizzle and light snow...maybe an inch or two before clearing out by Sunday morning. Sunday looks sunny and chilly, warmer during the workweek.
My Playful Podcast for Sat., Oct. 13 is The School for Self-Healing's Meir Schnieder reporting from Israel. Today's segment, "Meir in the Holy Land", is 5:45, with audio only. Thank you Meir!
The latest artwork for Amy's new book, "Playing for Peeps", was completed on Sun., Aug. 26. Nine illustration drawings are completed, with only one left to go! I will be finishing the remaining drawing next year, after the others have been inked and colored in.
This illustration is based on Brigitte Mars' "Desktop Guide to Herbal Medicine". The 48 herbs illustrated represent the herbs she recommends to improve eye health and wellness. I call this "Herbs for Eyes". Check out all my illustration drawings by clicking the "Playing for Peeps" tab!
