Viva Streets, Denver's First Cyclovia was an Amazing Success!

Seeing Oneida Park so alive was a great feeling!   This little neighborhood shopping center is experiencing a slow but steady revival.  The energy of the day signaled more good things to come I'm sure!

We were fortunate to have Denver's first Cyclovia right in our own neighborhood (although I would have headed cross town to get in on the action.)   I had high expectations for this event and all were surpassed!  A constant stream of people from 10am to 2pm.  I think if it would have run longer, the crowds would have kept coming!

The Bike Depot hosted an on-going bike rodeo for kids and adults alike.  Much fun was had!

The scene was much like this for the full two miles from Colorado Blvd to Syracuse.  Bikes, pedestrians, roller skaters and bladers, skate boarders and more!

Bamboo wrapped ride!

Watch out, she's gaining on you!

Denver Water keeping folks hydrated.

HUGE thanks to DPD for monitoring the action and running the lights!

The ever-popular Park Hill hangout, Turtle Park.

23rd & Dexter fun!

Spinelli's Market (where the Baker sells his pies) and the Cherry Tomato were popular stopping points.

How slow can you ride a B-cycle?
