  • The COS Racing Thinderbird Road race is the most fun anyone could have on a bicycle. It is also the Colorado State Championship race for juniors and master cyclists sanctioned by USA Cycling.
  • Beautiful place and inspiring. The cadet chapel is very nice. It’s a MUST visit place if you are in Colorado Springs area. Highly recommend it!
  • I am here to pay my respect to the outstanding men and women serving our great nation. The 20 min movie in the gift shop gave an excellent overview to the life of cadets, their choice and sacrifice, their being trained a warrior and leader the same time.
  • We visited the Planetarium today and saw Dream Big. What an amazing production! Omni theater quality in comfortable reclining chairs. This show involved engineering, robotics, encouraging children, especially girls, to Dream Big. For those of us who do not have an engineering mindset, it was anything But boring! We "rode" downhill on a steep rollercoaster and even a bullet train at 700 miles an hour. Wow! And the shows are FREE. Two days a week are dedicated to school groups and are booked already thru October.
  • Attended the USAFA - Neil Armstrong Class of 2019 Graduation Ceremony. What an amazing event.
