From A To B
Getting around is a breeze with over 21 miles of shared bike/car lanes, 35 miles of designated bike lanes, and 60 miles of multiuse trails within Denver’s parks. No bike? No problem.Denver B-Cycle is one of the first stateside, large scale municipal bike sharing programs with dozens of stations throughout downtown Denver to pick-up and drop off bikes. With over 300 days of sunshine and flat roads you would be crazy not to ride. The hard work of advocacy organizations Bicycle Colorado (www.bicyclecolo.org) and Bike Denver (www.bikedenver.org) help the vibrant local cycling community here stay ahead of the curve.
The Fuel Up
You have to love Crema Coffeehouse. This place not only serves the best damn coffee in Denver, it’s also the meet up for the weekly urban bike ride, LOOPS. Coffee not your thing? They serve fresh, organic juice, delicious tea, as well as an assortment of fancy pastries. Local art rotates the walls monthly, making this a popular destination for Denver’s creative professionals.
Notable neighbors include NOVO Coffee Roasters (served at Crema), Denver B-Cycle, Larimer Lounge, Meadowlark Bar and Lisa Kowalski Gallery.
The Plastic Chapel rocks for gifts and fun trinkets. This East Colfax shop participates in the Second Saturday art walk every month with its neighbors Big Hairy Monster Hair Salon, Hooked On Colfax and The Shoppe. If you like dancing, don’t miss Rockbar to close out the night.
