I Love Riding in the City
NAME: Marcus Garcia
Where do you live and what’s it like riding in your city?
I live and ride in Denver, CO. I’ve been a messenger here for over 22 years. Riding in Denver is a beautiful mix of ever changing weather conditions that more than likely includes some sunshine. Denver is fairly bike friendly and the bike culture here continues to evolve. Commuting to and from downtown is rather easy via bike paths if that’s your thing. Being surrounded by the Rocky Mountains is beautiful unto itself, not to mention that you can pursue any type of cycling venture, either in Denver or its surrounding area. Oh, did I mention that it’s beautiful? I’m just sayin’.
What was your favorite city to ride in, and why?
It may be cliché, but San Francisco. I was out there during the NACCC a few years ago, and it really is like a big skatepark. A beautiful city with endless adventure... I’m down.
Why do you love riding in the city?
At this point its kind of just what I do, or have to do. If I don’t ride, I start to feel crappy and lethargic like an addict without a fix. I need to ride. Plus it’s created the wonderfully rich life I’m glad to have.
Or just say whatever you want about riding in the city…
If some is good more is better. Git some!
