We are grateful to all those that have taken part in the fun we've had riding bikes on Wednesdays! However, as with all things that prosper, change must come. We've been working on making this change from a Wednesday night ride to a Friday night ride for a couple of years now; and with this being the 10 Year Anniversary of the Denver Cruiser Ride, we figured 'hey - no better time than the present to make this gynormous shift in what we've been doing.' We're even working on getting a revised Mayoral Proclamation to ring in this new era for Denver Bike Night.
As you can probably imagine, we've been asked 1000s of times "Why is Denver Bike Night on Wednesday? I'd come if it was on Friday night." And so we listened to those that want to ride with us, as well as putting our finger in the air to test the winds of what adjustments needed to be made in order to keep the DCR alive. It's true that a HUMP DAY RIDE made sense in 2005, however, as the DCR has evolved, it has become increasingly clear that we needed to make an adjustment to how this ride rolls. We also anticipate there will be greater finanical support for a Friday bicycle-kind-of-thing in Denver instead of on Wednesdays. Plus, by doing it on Friday night, many won't be hungover at work the next day!
While we realize that this transition from what we've been doing the past ten years, will be difficult for some, but it's our hope that this change will still be as inviting as the Wednesday nights have always been. We're convinced that this will be a positive step for Denver's bicycle community and the Denver Cruiser Ride as a whole. It's our intention to keep this rolling into the next ten years and to continue to play a positive role in Denver's burgeoning bicycle future. MARK MAY 22ND ON YOUR CALENDAR as the first ride of 2015!
