Grab your cruiser bike, road bike, mountain bike or trick bike and head over to the the Colorado State Capital in Downtown Denver tonight (Saturday) for the Kaiser Permanente Moonlight Bike Ride.
This just sounds fun to me. Cruising through the streets of Denver with the soft glow of the moon showing you the way. And with a “Gonzo” wave of folks taking off in the later start and a costume contest element I think half of the event is just about having fun and, as is a common theme for me, being a kid again.
Now my favorite is a snow shoe under a full moon where the light from moon bouncing off the snow literally makes it bright as day. But for city living this sounds like the same great idea. And don’t forget it goes to benefit a good cause…
