What's up this week with
Believers On Mountain Bikes (BOMB)

Weekly Update


Good group at Deer Creek last week (pictured above), long days and less crowded trails as the summer solstice draws near.  Many have asked how Brian Crosby is doing after his accident a few weeks ago.  Thank you to everyone how came out to help with yard work and gave to support meals for the family.  Latest information here.  https://www.instagram.com/christin.crosby/ 

Rarely do you get the opportunity to help someone directly and the family will need more help over the next year as he recovers.  Look for the call for help on the Facebook group or this email. 


This week is Floyd Hill and it has something for everyone. Sitting high above Clear Creek canyon, Floyd Hill offers amazing vistas of the Front Range, Centennial Cone and Lookout Mountain. Designed with both biking and hiking trails, this new trail system sits just 15 minutes from Golden just off I-70. The Sluice  is a brand-new 1.3-mile downhill trail and the crown jewel of these world-class trails for bikers

Devotional
1:Peter 2:9-10
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

The idea of community (the people of God) is woven throughout the Scriptures, where we see that God's design and purpose for our lives is found and formed in a family of faith.  While the BOMB group is no substitute for being connected through a local church, is is a part of being with God.  We can practice being with God in our daily lives though scripture reading, talking to God in prayer and well as being with other believers.  

We do a lot of riding but also build this family of faith in the moments of regrouping, before/after the ride and along the trail.  In these moments,  conversations start that somehow seem to go deeper than the latest new bike component.   I see every year that God brings people to the group to both encourage and challenge each other. Each week seems like the people that are there somehow are chosen to connect for a purpose.   There's just something about the shared experience of a group ride that seems to align with the idea of community laid out in scripture.  Encouraging each other as we attempt the technical climbs, the shared smiles of a fun decent and even a hint that you belong to something bigger and greater than just an individual experience. 

Lots of season left and ways to connect in a safe way.  If you can't make this week, check out the schedule and make plans for sometime this summer.  http://denverbomb.com/schedule/
