Consensus can be a tough thing to find among the disparate factions of the cycling community in Denver -- Critical Mass, the Cherry Creek bike trail and the use of gears are some common areas of contention -- but it appears there is at least one thing we all can agree on (besides turn signals -- we all really hate it when drivers don't use them): Art about bikes is awesome. On Friday night, and again on Saturday, Super Ordinary Gallery unveiled its second annual ARTCRANK exhibit, brought to Denver by gallery owners Tran and Josh Wills, in collaboration with Minnesota promoter Charles Youel, who first conceived it as away to unite the bicycle community. Great Success! Turns out we all can just get along.
We sent our man Britt Chester to check out Friday night's opening. He brings back these photos.
