Bike Commuting in Denver: Part I

3 Flares 3 Flares ×

As I’m getting used to the world of Denver, CO I’ve been able to start bike commuting to the shop I’m at, Salvagetti. This is amazing for me as I haven’t had the luxury of being able to bike commute for roughly 3 years. (If you remember, I used to ride daily and didn’t even own a car for a while.)

This week I’ve been able to ride into work on the Cherry Creek Greenway, cut over on a bike lane and arrive at the bike shop with little contact with true street traffic. The full ride is roughly 12-14 miles depending how I get to the greenway and I can easily say I’m in cycling heaven.

A few key things that have helped me navigate:

Google Maps “Bicycle” Function
A patient girlfriend that has been able to ride in with me two of the days for entertainment and quality time

Over the next few months I plan on documenting in better detail my commute, different areas/bike paths and greenways. I even hope to do some bike camping sooner than later. If you are in the area, let me know! I would love to explore with folks.
