Bike to Work Day

The annual bike-love-fest known as Bike to Work to Day was today. Vendors and sponsors set up breakfast stations at strategic locations and hand out free food, coffee and a variety of bars, fruits, and other schwag for cyclists.

I was having such a good time riding that between before and after rides I logged nearly 40 miles. I began at 6 AM, and found surprisingly empty streets. Streets that would be bumper to bumper in another 90 minutes. It is so much fun to have a whole road to yourself. Especially one that is downhill as you can carve large slalom turns.


Tracy, Scott and I went to the Bike from Work Bash, which featured free beer and food. Below Tracy is double fisting beers, she tried to convince this is the first time in years that this has happened. I am not sure I believe her.


The dog statue outside of Denver’s new animal shelter. It is at least 20 feet tall and covered in dog tags.

  1. At a little after 8:00pm on the South end of Wash Park I thought I saw a guy with a furry face riding what looked to be a brand spanking new black Cross-Check. You wouldn't know anything about that, would you?

  2. If some bearded guy had the good luck of a beautiful evening and stunning sunset at Wash Park, all atop a new bike, I hope he wore a wide grin all the way home.

  3. Thanks for stopping by the Bike From Work Bash! We raised a ton of money for BikeDenver! Over all we had about 3000 people show up for the event.
