Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast, especially come summer. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease this trying transition, we’re running a new feature every Monday, at least during the summer, called 90 Second Escape. Essentially, it’s a 90-second video of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s in the sun.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Cycling Denver’s Bike Highways.
I like to bike, but not necessarily in traffic. That’s one reason I’m closely watching greenway developments in the Triangle — Raleigh’s House Creek and Neuse River greenways, Cary’s Black Creek Greenway, the American Tobacco Trail bridge over I-40 in Durham — that will make it easier to bike around town on paths closed to motorized vehicles. It’s also what drove me to take a trip to my native Denver last week to explore that city’s extensive bike path network. I’ll be writing more about that next week. In the meantime, go with me on a 90 Second Escape on Denver’s bike highways.
