To accompany this week's cover story on bike safety in this city, Sam Alviani rolled out a list of Denver's five best bike-friendly bars, culminating with the Denver Bicycle Cafe.

But not everyone in this city is feeling so friendly to cyclists. See also: - Denver's five best bike-friendly cities - As Denver becomes a major bike city, can it put safety first?

Writes plpllawson:

This new generation of bicyclists are annoying and dangerous. With their feeble lights they should not be on the streets at night. It's just plain ignorant.

And the last thing anyone wants to deal with when they are going up the mountains is having to deal with passing them. Most of us want to experience the serenity and beauty of the mountains, not a hundred goofy people on their bikes on one of those bike tours or what ever they call them.

How do you feel about this city's cyclists? The way drivers treat cyclists? And what's the wheel deal watering hole for a cyclist?

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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
