Brad Evans, founder of the Denver Cruisers, sent us this photo last night of 1-25 shut down to cars -- which didn't stop him and some cyclists from using the highway. He wrote to us, "Who says we can't live without interstate transportation? Within 20 minutes this photo had 600 likes on the Denver Cruiser Fan Page! ... This is probably the first and last time I'll ever be able to ride bikes on I-25 without being killed!"
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.
