The moonlight was not the highlight of the Moonlight Classic Bike Ride
Everybody knows that, in this town, if you're riding your bike around during the day and you're not decked out in blaring, full-body lycra, you are doing it wrong. At night, though, all bets are off. This weekend, the Kaiser Permanente Moonlight Classic once again took off from the state Capitol along a 10-mile closed course -- and though it was, as always, non-competitive, there was at least one way that people tried to one-up each other: with ridiculous costumes. Man, if only more people would consider clown wigs as a viable riding wardrobe choice, the Cherry Creek Bike Path might be way less boring.
We sent photographer Stephen Cummings to check out the scene. He brings back these photos.
