    my gawd, haven't you been reading the posts from others in this forum that road biking is much more dangerous than mountain biking?

    I rode in, got up at 5am to get the free stuff before it ran out I have several Cliff bars, 2 water bottles (one nalgene type one), a small box of ceral, chapstick and an arm band for a mp3 player. Last year I scored tire levers, the normal snacks, water bottles and a pair of socks.

    My work had coffee, burritos, fruit, etc ready for folks too.
    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.

    I drove to boulder, then biked in the remaining 9 miles. Does that count? I can't justify riding 93.

    Glorious morning for a ride into work, nary a jerk driver the whole way in. My route is Golden to Jeffco Airport, tasty burritos awaited me as I arrived. We have a couple of dozen bikes littered throughout the office today. Everything from a sweet Yeti-ASR to $200 trail bikes to one very sweet carbon/DA everything Orbea and my 04 Cannondale CAAD8.

    I rode in today for the 1st time this year.
    I had a tooth pulled yesterday, and the dentist said I shouldn't do anything strenuous for 24 hours, so I actually coasted to the bus stop, rode the bus, then pedaled easily a few miles to work.
    Will ride home though.
    10 bikes at work today - usually only 3 or 4.
    A recumbent, a fold-a-bike, a road bike or 2, quite a few MTBs, and my sweet Mongoose! Oh yeah and a funky framed Ellsworth cruiser type thing.

    I rode my flat bar road bike in from Thornton to Denver along the Platte River trail. It's my usual ride that I try to do at least 4 out of 5 days. It's a little less than 15 miles each way I believe.

    Stopped by REI for some schwag and to talk to all the other bikers chilling. One table was even giving out bike helmets. I talked to the peopleforbikes.org guys and the Tour de Cure guys (did the MTB ride in CO Springs earlier). Lots of great people all around though. It was awesome seeing so many bikes and bikers around.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    I rode in today... but I've been riding regularly so it just meant no space in the bike racks at work.

    Krispy Kreme didn't have a booth by their store.

    Bike paths were oddly quiet - I was expecting more traffic...

    The Platte River trail was jumpin'. There's never that many bikes on it.

    *SIGH* those images are torturous reminders I why I miss the Front Range...

    Hope everyone is getting good use out of all the miles and miles of paths available out there. I used to work on the Platte River Greenway quite a few years ago. At that time the Platte and Cherry Creek paths were impressive IMO. That is nothing compared to now I am told.

    They are working on a new functional path project in Atlanta right now - can't post links yet (too new?) so you'll have to go to "Beltline dot org" to read about Atlanta Beltline Eastside Trail. Interestingly the route provided some good in-town MTB action last summer and fall until they started construction on the paved trail segment this spring. Some RR ties left in place, deep pockets of RR bed ballast rocks to plow through, narrow single track with mud puddles, crazy bridge dwelling people...

    Until completion most bike commuters in the ATL have to take their chances on the mean streets with the cars. And the heat. Sweat to Work Day.

    Ride to work = everyday for me

    Good to see more bikes than cars!
