Bike Commuting in Denver: Part II

An on going series of riding and commuting in my new city of Denver Colorado. See more about my Denver Cycling experienced here. 

Over the past couple weeks I have been reminded about some key things for commuting and riding in a major city like Denver, CO.

  • Maps aren’t always perfect, but it adds to the adventure.
  • Cable locks are useless and shouldn’t be sold to keep your bike safe
  • Thorn resistant tires are required in the west. I’ve seen tires with 10-30 “goat heads” after riding through a city park, on the greenway.
  • Finding new routes on greenways, make shift single track through parks, sharrowed bike lanes and back alleys are never ending. Thank you BikeDenver and everyone else involved.
  • No matter how “bike friendly” a city is, there are still jacks in cars, on bikes and walking the streets. Put yourself and your safety first.

    Many thanks for your Denver postings. I too am moving to DEN in July from Salt Lake City and as a lover of all things on two wheels these posts are relieving me of some of my worries.

      Hey Edward, where in Denver are you moving to?

    Details of where are still up in the air. Partners job is south of the downtown area so she and I most likely will focus on Washington Park, Englewood, or Littleton. Need access to transit and bike facilities, at least for my sanity 😉 Local businesses/markets/pubs and walkability. Progressive neighbors. Open space. You know, all the required stuff. Would love input. We’ll most likely rent for a short period until we land the perfect location.
