Bike Commuting in Denver: Part III
An on going series of riding and commuting in my new city of Denver Colorado. See more about my Denver Cycling experience here.
With my move successful complete (there are still boxes to find and empty if you would like to help,) I started testing out the commute from my house to the bike shop this past Monday. While I’ve only done the round trip commute a couple times it is great to explore a new city and perfect the streets to ride on or avoid completely.
Below is a Strava map of my ride into the shop. Pretty mellow and down hill until the last 2.5 miles which are constant climb to the front door of Salvagetti. This isn’t a horrible thing, but I’ve been testing out riding a single speed cyclocross bike with flat pedals for commuting and daily errands. I’m interested to see how fast the ride goes with gears so that I can push the pedals a bit more on the downhills.
My goals for the next few days are to get Emily’s new commuter rig built up (photos and bike profile coming soon) and to finish the unpacking of essentials like my 4 tubs of clothes. This will allow me to be less stressed and able to get out of the house next Tuesday/Wednesday when I have off.
All City in the Movies
Earlier today All City Cycles posted on their Facebook that the Big Block model will be in a movie. The comments of course turned south about the bike, accessories and chick on board. While, I’m not wanting to open this up to a bunch of horrible comments, I do want to say I’m excited to see bikes in movies, especially being rode by girls wearing helmets!

Getting some last bits together but my All City Nature Boy bike is ready! White bar tape and purple Crank Brothers will need to be haD.
The BIG News
It has been in the works for four months. Countless phone calls, questioning, heckling and hounding. This is the bike industry right?
