About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.

  1. The question is whether to bike or not with the “biking community” on Shabbat? The Commandment is “Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy” (meaning set apart). Isaiah 58; 13-14 tells me personally to “be still….avoid doing my own pleasure on HIS holy day”…..etc. This, my husband and I do. This would not include a “thrilling, wild bike ride with the biking community.”

    Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the biking issue on Shabbat. Cathy
