Had the opportunity to take 12 squirrely teenagers from McLain High School and their teacher, Tony, for a bike tour. I think they had a good time, between texting and jumping off the curbs! They were smiling!

Another reason to visit colorful Colorado! Earlier this month Gov. John Hickenlooper announced a plan to spend more than $100 million over the next four years to make Colorado “the best state for biking.” His goal is a cleaner environment and for Colorado to be the healthiest state in America.

The week long Colorado Crush graffiti and street art festival came to a close today here in Denver, although as of this evening there were plenty of artists still working on their murals. This is such a unique event and guests of Mile High Bike Tours got to experience it first hand all week as we rode through the alley between 25th and 32nd streets in the RiNo district. Graffiti artists from all over the country were spray painting with reckless abandon and we got to witness the transformation of old works into new, which happens only once a year.

On July 31, 2015 The Vancouver Sun travel section reported on Mile High Bike Tours, exclaiming that Mile High Bike Tours is the best way to view Denver’s plentiful public artwork.  Check out the full article by clicking the link below and discover yet another reason to take a tour with us!!

Bicycle Safety--FYI

Last Wednesday I had the opportunity to take a dozen beautiful young ladies from the Denver Kids organization on a bicycle tour of downtown Denver. It was a typical hot summer day in the Mile High City but we cooled down as we rode through the fountains in front of Union Station and had lunch in the shade under the trees at Confluence Park. A few sore bottoms were reported by the end of the ride but mostly smiles and appreciation for being able to get outside and do something slightly different while on summer break.b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC_0382.jpg

Helmets are designed to absorb the shock of a sudden impact—not necessarily break a fall. During an impact, the energy disperse across the polystyrene shell of the helmet instead of inside your fragile skull. Even the skull is designed to break to help reduce the force on the wearer.

MHBT had it’s first corporate tour event and hosted 26 engineers from CH2MH company. The guests who attended were from their global corporate offices including Dubai, Ireland, London, Chicago and New York. After the evening ride they continued to Yazoo’s BBQ at 2150 Broadway where the fun continued on the roof top patio where they enjoyed some of the best ribs and brews in town!

The rain has subsided here in the Mile High City, and although a small portion of the Platt River trail is technically closed, we have managed to forge through with our bike tours and navigate our way through the waters.   I've made a game to it to see how our skilled our riders are. If you get a foot wet, you lose!
