Photos: Denver Cruisers ride 1894 into the future

Eight tornadoes may have touched down in Denver a few hours earlier, but that didn't mean the Denver Cruiser Ride was off. Participants eagerly hit the streets for the second session of the year -- but instead of looking like 2014, many cyclists were duded up and ready for 1894.

Our Marissa Shevins was on hand to capture the fun. Check out a sampling of her images below and click to see the complete Denver Cruisers get old school on their 1894 ride slide show.
