Bikestravaganza: Off the Chainring in Denver

Last Thursday was the first official event in the Denver Zine Library, even before our grand re-opening coming up on September 6 (keep an eye out for details). We welcomed Elly Blue and Joe Biel on their tour, Bikestravaganza: Off the Chainring!

It was a cozy night since the crowd was small, but everyone was excited to talk about and learn about bike culture in Denver and around the country (with extra emphasis on Portland, where our fabulous presenters/performers reside). We chatted about Critical Mass, B-Cycle, bike lanes, safety, creative bike events and just how much we love biking.

Many thanks to Elly and Joe for coming to Denver and spending a lovely evening with us!
