Reader: You're an idiot to drink and ride

The streets of Denver are filled with bicyclists -- some doing errands, some going to and from work, some out for recreation, and others seeking a drink. For that last group, Laura Shunk served up a weekend B-Cycle bar tour that was "seriously cheap and disgusting," according to Bradman.

And that's not all. Says Denverite:

Drinking and riding should be celebrated no more than drinking and driving. I do drink and ride my bike but I definitely never push that activity onto others. You're an idiot!
