Bike Smut

May 3rd, 2019

You guyz! You guyz!! You guyz!!! One of my favorite things EVER is coming to Denver! It’s called Bike Smut, and it’s rolling through Denver on May 8. Bike Smut is exactly what it sounds like; it’s a two-wheeled celebration of sexuality and transportation. And. It’s. Awesome. I first stumbled upon this treasure of short films shortly after I discovered that I really enjoy watching creative, independent erotica in large theaters. This was a whole new world of goofy people having fun and not caring what others thought about them. I loved it. Then I found out that goofy people can have fun... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Nancy

November 9th, 2017

This is Nancy, from California. Nancy made her way from deep slopes in the west to Colorado where she could begin a new life. In California Nancy had been fighting with drug addiction and and as she puts it, she was losing. Determined not to give up she decided that the next best step would be to bike out to Colorado where she could start fresh. And she did just that. Three years later and she’s drug free. Now Nancy works at a call center now, helping guide people out of the position she was in when she lived in California. Keep on keeping on, Nancy!    Read More

Be Boulder, Bike to Work

June 14th, 2016

We’ve all been there, stuck in traffic on the way to work as a bicyclist zips by us in the bike lane. We envy their blissful freedom from the snare of cars, imagining ourselves embarking on the same, ultimately Boulder trip instead of melting into the seat of our car. Now is your chance to join them. June 22nd is Boulder’s official bike to work day. Take this opportunity to free yourself from the frustration of rush hour and join the party. Presented by the City of Boulder in cooperation with Community Cycles, this Boulder celebration makes an early morning commute into a community festival.... Read More

10 Things Triathletes Do That Piss Cyclists Off.

October 20th, 2014

Part of being a triathlete is being a cyclist, and part of being a cyclist is making fun of triathletes. This strange relationship is one that I have gotten to carefully observe over the years. Many of my friends are strictly cyclists, and many are strictly triathletes. The only thing they have in common is that they ride bikes. Triathletes try to be the master of three sports, and I get it, that is annoying. We are like that girl you went to high school with who was the president of the student government, captain of the basketball team, and voted homecoming queen. Here is a list of 10 things... Read More

The Best Bike Rides in Boulder for Everyone

October 13th, 2014

Boulder has the highest percentage of bike owners of any town in the US. 71% of the population owns at least one bike. This means that 71% of the population owns the ultimate exploring machine. As a cyclist I have been on almost every road in Boulder and the surrounding area. Sometimes I head west into the mountains, and other times I like to cruise around out east on the flatter roads. No matter where I go, I often look around and think about how if I weren’t a cyclist I would have never seen most of these places. The reason for this is because as a cyclist we look for roads with low traffic,... Read More

The Buzz About Boulder B-cycle

November 20th, 2013

If you’ve spent much time in Boulder then it’s likely that you’ve noticed these spiffy red bicycles. They can be seen coasting along the Boulder Creek Path, under commuters as they zip to work, or parked at the many docking stations throughout the city. With their bright coloring, sturdy Trek frames, and big baskets in front, these trendy new bikes, or B-cycles, have become a popular and convenient new mode of transportation for many living in or visiting Boulder. Boulder B-cycle operates under a technologically advanced, yet easy to use system of bike “sharing” as... Read More

A Trip to the Boulder County Farmers’ Market

September 1st, 2013

On Wednesday, August 28, I decided to get out of the house and stroll over to the Boulder Farmers’ Market for a real “only in Boulder” experience, and I’m happy to say that I got what I came for. I arrived at the market at around 5:30 p.m and found the place crawling with people. All walks of life were present here, ranging from old dreadlocked hippies to young dreadlocked hippies. There were also plenty of families with young children, students, and a handful of colorful characters, including a man in a superhero costume and a man in a tie-dye jumpsuit making balloon animals.... Read More
