Update, 5/18/12: We're a little late in announcing our winner this week, but we did select one. Check your e-mail to see if you're the lucky rider!


"At one point, over 2,000 miles of narrow-gauge track probed the mountains of Colorado," claims the Colorado Railroad Museum. Granted, this ol' fixed gear bike can't really travel on any of those tracks, but it can cross them repeatedly when in the right part of town.

Did you know that in 1888, that last five cars of a Colorado Springs-bound freight train -- carrying explosives and flammable liquids -- became unhitched and started heading back toward Santa Fe on the down-sloping track? It blew a hole in the ground fifteen-feet deep and 35-feet wide when it collided with another train. The train that runs on this track probably won't ever make it all the way back down south, but maybe...

Can you guess the intersection where this train track crosses a major street in Denver? (Be as specific as possible.)

The winner receives a Denver B-cycle 2012 season pass -- a $80 value -- for free!

Just leave your best guess in the comments section and make sure you include an e-mail (whether in your Disqus profile or in the comment itself) so we can contact you if you're the winner.
