Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The wheels are still turning over our Cruiser bikes suck/Cruiser bikes rule debate, with aesthetes and athletes alike weighing in on the debate.

And the discussion isn't limited to cruisers.

Says Uncle Scam:

On my ride to work today, I saw a guy riding in the wrong lane on a Walmart mountain bike. A big truck with Texas plates turned right and almost hit him, the guy looked at me a yelled, "Son of a Bitch." I said, "Dude, you're riding in the wrong lane against traffic." He flipped me off.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
