Wednesday Bike Night - Theme: Black & White

Happy Sunday!

What a weekend - finally - the first "Warm" almost down right hot weekend. Summertime for sure. Let the DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince play!

Speaking of all things Jazzy & Fresh - Bike NIght will be back on Wednesday. Something special is going to happen this week. So, please, wear black and/or white. It's gonna be cool!

It's been a heck-uva-week. I spent Thursday cruising the streets of Boulder. Riding the Boulder Cruiser ride was a lot of fun and somewhat intimidating. I hadn't ridden with them since we raised money to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

I heard from multiple cruisers they'd heard of Longmont Bike Night and were impressed with the cycling options we had here. Several people were there who were regulars with the Boulder ride and had done our ride, told me they said Longmont's ride reminded them of Boulder's ride in the '90's prior to it's explosive growth.

Boulder now draws nearly 500 riders, regularly. From a ride leader's perspective it was interesting to see how 500 people can move organically through a city like Boulder. It's really something to behold. I encourage you to check it out.

Both are very fun, but in different ways.

The most interesting thing i witnessed was the "Rave in a Box". Something to behold, for sure.

Congrats to the folks who make Boulder's Ride very unique, and very Boulder.
