Some of the earliest mountain bikes were made in this building, and years of collective knowledge have been passed along inside these walls. And to top it all off, the roof opens up! (Imagine a large German beer stein, the kind with a pewter top…insert bike shop.) Tasty, indeed.

Point6 Socks



Thanks to Peter & Patty Duke for outfitting our team with a first class product.  Read below and find out what makes Point6 one of the best in the sock business !!

The Point6 Difference

Point6 uses the highest quality merino wool fibers combined with state of the art spinning and knitting techniques to create exceptionally soft merino products built for optimal comfort and performance.
Using 100-percent compact spun yarn produces more merino fibers per inch and creates a luxuriously soft end result that is never scratchy, itchy or bulky. Compact spun yarns are the most durable merino wool yarns on the market that greatly reduce the loose fibers that lead to pilling and wear. Point6 has engineered the precise anatomical fit for sport-specific products that are comfortable and itch-free without bulk.
Point6 is named for 98.6° F, the body’s optimal temperature and stands for the temperature stabilizing properties inherent to Point6 merino wool. Merino wool naturally regulates body temperature to keep you cool when it’s warm and warm when it’s cold, and creates a cozy environment of efficient insulation even when wet. The perfect companion for extreme climates, merino wool has evolved over thousands years as nature’s performance fiber. The natural crimp of merino wool fibers traps body heat and provides excellent thermal insulation. Point6 merino products are engineered for activities that often involve wide and varied ranges in temperature and elevation, including backpacking and hiking, snowsports, cycling, running, fitness and mountaineering.
The hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties of Point6 merino work together to maintain a complex moisture-management system. The hydrophilic core of the merino fiber can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture, while the hyrdrophobic properties naturally wicks moisture away from the skin and transports it as vapor, before it has time to bead up on the surface. Unlike cotton or synthetics, merino fiber removes perspiration between the skin and garment, and maintains its thermal properties even when wet.Our merino wool socks won’t leave you embarrassed to take your shoes off after a long day. Point6 merino is anti-microbial and proven to be more odor-resistant than cotton or synthetic fabrics. Point6 merino helps manage excess perspiration by quickly transporting it away from your skin, allowing it to evaporate before it can grow odorous.

Aspire Wellness


Dr. Jon has a unique understanding of what an athlete needs to perform at their very best.  I am super excited to have him as a partner of Iron Edge Coaching.

At Aspire Performance Health, Dr. Freckleton packages collections of food, superfood and supplements to support optimal functioning of the body. Dr. Freckleton combines his knowledge as a board certified family physician, athlete and coach with over 20 years of experience in the whole foods and supplement market. His Solutions for Performance have been created for and tested by Olympians, athletes and everyday professionals. Because he believes that very few single supplements work effectively, Dr. Freckleton has created collections of products for more profound effects.

Through his years of family medicine, Dr. Freckleton has found that the body breaks down in three major pathways. When you push too hard or are subjected to additional demands from athletic training, emotional stress, travel or lack of sleep, typical symptoms are pain and injury, poor sleeping or thinking patterns, or immune distress. These three categories encompass most people and each Solution for Performance package will allow you to train or work harder with fewer symptoms, greater health and delayed signs of aging.

Steamboat Christian Center


One of the first people we were introduced to when moving to Steamboat was Pastor Troy over at SCC.  Finding a good church was important to our family and we are convinced that we found a Great One in SCC !!  If you are searching for something and need a word of encouragement give Steamboat Christian a try – I guarantee you wont be disappointed.

Steamboat Christian Center wants the message of Christ to make a life-long difference in your life, in your family’s lives, and in the Steamboat community.  How do we go about doing that?  By having passion for God in our every day lives, and having compassion for others, in everything we do.

Steamboat Christian Center is in the heart of a fast-paced ski town bustling with tourists, filled with families and people from different backgrounds, locations and life experiences.  What we love about SCC is that all of us have come to this beautiful town with so many diverse stories, and come together each week to worship our one true God.  It’s such a great group of people, friendly, inviting, and warm.

At SCC, we want to help you become the person God made you to be, and discover the purpose He designed just for you.  So we believe everyone has a Next Step in this journey, and that all of us, all the time, should be growing, learning, and developing our relationship with Christ and others.

We love our church.  We love our town.  And we would love for you to be a part.  See you soon!

If your looking for a massage therapist who understands the needs of the athlete please give Nicole a call.  I appreciate her ability to help me recover quicker from my workouts.


When You Step Up to the Starting Line,
Don’t You Want Your Body to Be At Its Best?

Whether your starting line involves a 10k or an Ironman, a hiking trail or a casual bike ride or the beginning of your first or fifth pregnancy, massage therapy can help you reach your peak.

Massage therapy is one of the most important allies you have when it comes to promoting a healthy body and mind. From enhancing immunity to increasing joint flexibility to improving circulation to reducing cramping to relieving pain to lessening depression to improving athletic performance, to helping you recover faster from intense endurance events, massage therapy is simply one of the kindest things you can do for your body.

As an experienced mountain bike racer and endurance athlete, and mom to two young girls, I know what it is like to wear your body down and the kind of treatment you need to bring it back up to speed.
