Racers and spectators have plenty to look forward to from April through September.

The Colorado-based Motorcycle Roadracing Association is already gearing up for the 2022 season. Like most organizations, the past couple of years have been more than a little weird, but organizers are looking forward to getting back on track for a statewide race season that starts in May. On February 15, 2022, it officially opened membership registration and licensing for the season. 

Anyone interested in joining, renewing, or purchasing a new racing license for the series can go to the official MotorsportReg website, which we’ll link in our Sources. Both memberships and licenses will be available through Sunday, September 25, 2022. 

MRA also hosts a pre-season race school to get competitors up to speed for the upcoming season, and 2022 is no exception. To ensure that the season gets off

Nonprofit Bike Garage opens in Davis

The Bike Campaign just opened a Bike Garage in Davis, at 1550 Cannery Ave., east of The Barn.

The 10-year-old nonprofit has been running the Bike Garage from Douglass Middle School, 525 Granada Drive in Woodland. Bike Campaign director Maria Contreras Tebbutt said she and other volunteers didn’t want to work out of a closed school during the pandemic, so they started helping people out of the garage of her East Davis home.

“There were so many inquiries,” she said, “from people needing to repair bikes or get bikes (during COVID).”

She said that when the spot opened up at The Cannery, it was perfect. It’s sheltered but open-air, protecting volunteers and patrons from the elements. The Bike Garage provides free bike repair and advice, and quality used bikes that are tested by mechanics. These used bikes last much longer than ones you’d buy at Target, she said.
