It provides links to just about everything you might want to know about cycling, both on and off-road. One favorite part is the CS Bicycle Directory listing of phone numbers for just about any issue local cyclists might encounter. How many times have you come across recent damage on a road or trail, for example, and really didn’t know who to contact? Or, do you know the best number to call if your bike is stolen?

Trails and Open Space Coalition’s Bikeways – Page for the Pikes Peak Area Bikeways Coalition. Provides maps, everything you might want to know about area trails, and tons of other resources.
World Carfree Network – This one’s a bit “out there”, not here for its practicality. You’ll think this is advocating either for a better future or for a reversal of industrial progression.
