Since this happens in downtown Denver, I actually take the day off and ride down for all the festivities.
Well, now that it is May here in Colorado, we are getting a nice spring snow storm. Lets see, Sunday it was 77, Monday it was 77, yesterday it was 67 and today --
Snow. The snow could be heavy at times. High near 32. Breezy, with a north northeast wind 9 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total daytime snow accumulation of 3 to 5 inches possible.
I had the snow bike all put away and was ready for some nice spring riding. Instead, riding in the snow again. Hey, at least it's better than a cold rainy day. I really don't like those.
Should be nice here for a couple days, then ... snow? Crazy spring weather here in Denver.
What a gorgeous day here in Denver. Spring has finally say goodbye to the snow and we have 60's & 70's for the foreseeable future. Took Cherry Creek downtown this afternoon and everyone and his brother was out and about. The bike path was packed. Looking forward to grub in Old Highlands, a good nights rest and a nice long ride tomorrow.

There is nothing better than having a bullet proof tire when you're out riding in the city let alone, the arctic!
Man, what a beautiful day here in Denver, Sunny and 68.
And I have to say, the scenery was awesome! ( hee, hee, hee)
Volvo has announced it is releasing a cyclist detection facility which should prevent fatal accidents.
The auto firm says vehicles fitted with the system will be able to detect threats including a cyclist suddenly swerving out into a car's path.
Read on ...
Next they will need to come up with a system for when a car suddenly swerves into a bicyclists path.
Not that these Pearl Izumi's don't still pull their weight,
but Petey is ready for new ones.
With close to 10 years and 25,000 miles, those Pearl Izumi's up top have set a high bar for the new ones.
We'll check back in another ten years and see how the new ones are doing.

It was strange riding to work with the new shoes this AM. Hell, even walking in them is so different.
Wow, has the weather here in Denver been nice the past week This past Saturday there was a 72° difference between the the low the previous Saturday and that Saturday. -12° vs 60°. (For reference, that Saturday was this day.)
So, I finally fixed up the single speed, a broken spoke, and have been out riding every day. It has been sweet.
And tomorrow, it's suppose to be close to 70°! Epic!
~ Update: 23 January ~
So it's Wednesday and it ain't even close to 70°.
WTF weathermen of the world?
