Denver Bike Tour

I Went For A Ride Today And This Is What I Saw

It was a beautiful morning in Denver, perfect for a bike ride in this cycling friendly city.  I donned my biking togs and headed out.

Here’s a map of my route – totaling roughly 14 miles.  Mostly just a wandering through areas of the city, traveling on streets which have nicely marked biking lanes and on dedicated bike paths along stream ways.  The terrain is biker friendly.  Denver is at the foot of the Rockies but the streets and paths are flat!  This ride was much more on flat ground than my rides in Kansas City.  I’m not complaining.

Here is what I saw on my Denver Bike Tour:
