Happy weekend: here's a B-Cycle crawl ideal for day drinking

We're not exactly avid cyclists here at Cafe Society, but we're sold on B-Cycle, since the bike share basically takes all the annoying parts of riding around out of the equation by letting us check out and dock up without having to worry about finding a place to lock up our gear. Eight bucks nets you 24 hours of riding, so long as you only check out bikes for thirty minutes at a time -- which means you should be on some sort of multi-stop tour to get your money's worth. So we like to use B-Cycle to accomplish something excellent, like, oh, a leisurely day-drinking crawl through this city's fine neighborhoods. And so we've devised just that: a multi-stop tour that allows you to day drink, see Denver by bike and get more for your $8 than you ever thought possible.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Laura Shunk was Westword's restaurant critic from 2010 to 2012; she's also been food editor at the Village Voice and a dining columnist in Beijing. Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
