A Denver Cruiser Ride in the heart of December has to have a reason -- or at least a reason more urgent than the usual "because." And in fact, tonight's DCR Retro Ride is getting in gear for a great reason: It's destined to be part of a locally produced Travel Channel pilot with Bert Kreischer of the cable network's Trip Flip. Tentatively called It's Five O'Clock Somewhere (like the Jimmy Buffet song), the show will presumably follow fun-loving Bert on nightlife adventures.

But the ride is for real, and the theme is Retro Ski Wear. Cruisers are invited to arrive for pre-ride partying at the Ginn Mill at 7 p.m. tonight at in full ski-bum and snow-bunny regalia, followed by a short downtown ride; then it's over to the Corner Office for an after-party with live music by the Human Agency. Ride or not, the public is invited to take part at either bar; admission is free.
