Foot Loose

It's officially springtime in the Rockies and residents are looking to shake the snowbound psychology from their noggins with some outdoor activities. How about a bike ride? Better yet, how about a lively "foot down" session with Denver's gnarly posse of bike messengers? This video filmed at last summer's Peanut Butter Cup shows why. The Greek amphitheater at Civic Center Park made a perfect stadium for the game, which consists of a dozen or more cyclists -- and even a unicyclist --circling without putting their foot down. Last one standing wins. PBR and deodorant for everyone!
