Helmets and Spandex

What a sight. Helmets, metal frames, and spandex galore. Today bikers took over the streets and trails of Denver for Bike to Work Day.  The Cherry Creek Path along the Platte River was buzzing with sounds of bike bells and people screaming from near accidents. Promoting biking as a means of transportation is a grand idea but half of it is teaching people how to ride bikes safely. This aside, the Denver Regional Council of Governments did a great job providing rest stops and incentives for riders. Bagels and coffee were plentiful and the power of the somewhat critical mass was invigorating. It's too bad they can't sponsor BTWD everyday.
