Here's my idea, I'll post some photos of what it's like to be carfree in Denver. I'll start with the bikes and add to the thread as time allows.

Here's my main 'round town bike. It's a Miyata 310 converted to fixed gear. It's purpose is to be inexpensive but decent to ride, a bike I can lock up outside without worry. Yes that's a mural of Bjork

Smurfette

This one is the house bike. It actually belongs to our landlord but we fixed it up and use it for hauling stuff around the neighborhood. It's a Huffy from the 1990's that was built in Dayton, Ohio.

Long Haul Trucker

My touring bike that's yet to be broken in. Excuse the skinny tires I'm still fine tuning this one. It's a Surly Long Haul Trucker with lots of Shimano parts

My neighborhood

I live in the Northeast section of Denver proper. My neighborhood is an early suburban area that was originally served by streetcar. Colfax Blvd. is also known as U.S. 40 and runs completely through the city. I avoid riding on it but have to cross over it most days.

City Park

I consider myself lucky to live near a great park that has a Museum of Nature and Science, a zoo, plenty of space to mill around in and a stunning view. It's also nice to have local businesses that serve my needs. Just South of City Park is this stylish High School.

Happy trails

Denver has trails that lead all over the place. Many follow waterways. The trails offer a great way to get around or out of the city without dealing with car traffic.

Thanks for the compliments. I'll keep adding to the thread when I can.

LOVE the Bjork mural on Grant, usually ride that direction a few times a week and always make a point to see it.
