Rockies By Bicycle (sort of)

Rebecca and I fonally got over to Denver to see a Rockies game. We drove down to Denver and parked a few miles from the ballpark and then rode in. Sure, it wasn't the old "ride to the Big A from my place" kind of spin, but the mileage was close. One of the best things about riding to Coors Field is the designated bicycle parking. They have a fenced area under a road ramp with numbered spaces and an attendant to log who is parking their bikes and in which space(s). With Denver already being really bike-friendly, this only adds to its niceties. As for the game, we were treated to a good old fashioned Rockies slugfest, with them racking up fifteen runs behind rookie Juan Nicasio's most excellent MLB debut on the mound.

Restoration by Bicycle

I just finished restoring an old beat-up chest of drawers. all of the parts and materials needed for the job were feteched by bicycle. After finishing the job, I set out on two motorized wheels to relax a bit.

Fort Fun

Today had been set aside for a solo adventure up in Fort Collins. A land shark tried to eat the Germo bike on a climb up a canyon, I had a co-pilot tray of really good beer at O'Dell, I made a new little friend in the form of a rescued pit bull, I had a couple more beers at O'Dell after having a humungoid burrito, then met my daughter and her b/f at Coopersmith where I got to enjoy a bourbon stout, buffalo burger and a rootbeer float. Coopersmith was also cool enough to have a vintage BSA track bike hanging on the wall as well.
