Who says bicycles can't fly?  Well, maybe they don't…exactly!  Next week, Taiga Company will be represented at the Breckenridge 100 mile Mountain Bike Race in Breckenridge, Colorado.  Going from sea level in Houston, Texas to Breckenridge, Colorado is a big jump in altitude and we're looking forward to flying "high" with excitement and perhaps, a new appreciation for oxygen

There are a million reasons to fall in love with your bike and this event is one more reason to add to the mix.    As sustainability consultants, we love bike riding because cycling or bike commuting is a zero emissions form of transportation, is considered a great stress release, enjoyable exercise, and is a component of a sustainable lifestyle.   And, it gets you outside to enjoy our natural environment.
The Breckenridge 100 is one of Colorado's premier off-road endurance races promising spectacular views.  Outdoor enthusiast can appreciate the mountain bike challenge.  It features Solo and Three Person Team Competitions, a course climbing 13,719 feet over its 100 miles, the chance to cross the Continental Divide three times, climb 12,000 foot passes and forge high mountain streams.  Whew!
But wait! There's more!  Sustainable businesses are rising to the occasion too!  Several of the event sponsors are sustainable businesses demonstrating eco awareness in their products and services.  See if you recognize these sponsors:  click here

Home to one third of the earth's trees, the Taiga is the largest land-based biosphere and encircles the globe. Its immense oxygen production literally changes the atmosphere and refreshes the planet. It is this continuous renewal that has shaped Taiga Company's vision to drive similar change in the business world. Taiga Company seeks to be the "oxygen for your business".
