Saturday Ride – The House on the Hill

Followed Bear Creek from the Platte up to Evergreen, CO. Had intended to check out the ride up to Mt. Squaw, but went South rather than North, in Evergreen. Oh well, looked like I just missed the rodeo parade in town. Had legs for a little more climbing, so went up over Grapevine Rd and looped back to Morrison for a Dale’s Pale Ale.

Salvagetti Bike Shop Moving!

It’s that time of year, Salvagetti is moving again. In July they will be moving the operation to their new location at 3800 Irving St up in the Highlands/Sunnyside. Would seem to me that they’re giving up a prime location where the main Denver trails intersect downtown, but I guess time will tell how this move goes.

Kaladi Bros. Coffee

If you’re in Denver or ever visit, Kaladi Brothers Coffee is an essential stop. This is a favorite meetup point for DU area cyclists. You’ll know when you’re close because the aroma of the beans roasting can be smelled from blocks around. Only certified organic and fair-trade beans are used. If that isn’t enough, Kaladi Brothers roasts their beans in-house, with an air-roaster as opposed to the more popular drum-roaster. The result is a much cleaner, less bitter coffee. For those hot days, when you need a cold drink, I would highly suggest their special brewed “VC”. Equal to the excellent coffee is the beautiful, and always wonderful baristas (not pictured are the oh so handsome baristos). So on your next ride be sure to stop by pre, mid, or post and get your caffeine fix on. Oh and for those out of staters that may just want to try some of the beans, they’re available for order online.
