The ride to the Capitol is great. Sure, it’s downhill. But even better, the streets in a 10-block radius of the Capitol are crawling with bikers.
Biking friends, tell me if you do this too: Race whenever anyone else is around. Yesterday, I was trying hard to not break a sweat, but as I turned onto 16th, I could see this guy hauling ass about a block back. So, of course, I had to haul ass. It makes me laugh how competitive I am in the bike lanes. All in good fun, of course. But I stayed ahead until my turn on Grant, and didn’t really care that I broke the sweat.
P.S. The real winner? Denver’s climate.
