OH, I have been down Speer Blvd. thousands of times. But this time I had a different point of view. My “little-big” brother Chaim and I decided to rent two of those ubiquitous B Cycle candy apple red bikes that you’ve sees all over the city since springtime.
We got started at Cherry Creek Mall, passed the gorgeous grounds of the Denver Country Club and then descended under the city, that is, under traffic level. Although we were passing all the same landmarks and streets I am accustomed to and familiar with, now it was from a different perspective.
Down under, with no traffic, plus the stream — it felt like a world away. It was an urban ride to be sure — yet, it was totally different, a break from the city.
