Spring Patios to Visit in Denver
SPRING IS HERE, and we’ve got patios on the brain. Here’s a list of a few of our faves and where in Denver you can find them.
#1. Denver Bike Cafe – 1308 E 17th Ave, Denver, CO
We often hang out at DBC to study, meet with Denverspeax partners, and simply relax. They serve coffee, brews, and food with a smile on their faces and rad music playing. Check out DBC for their beer & cheese tastings that they hold out on the patio in the summer, too – they’re big supporters of local businesses and hosting local events spotlighting them. Also, hooray for picnic table seating! Click here to read more about this cool place on DenverSpeax. Continue reading
Colorado’s Beer Passport
Yes – this is real, and being sold at a venue near you.
We picked ours up at Denver Bike Cafe and mapped out a bike ride for this evening, covering the Denver breweries included.
Stay tuned to see how far we get!

How To… Find EDM Shows in Denver
We’ve been into EDM (electronic dance music) of various forms since middle school, and thought that attending shows kind of died along with our high school days. What’s funny is that we have a ton of friends who, like us, had all been told that EDM was a phase, and when we got older we totally wouldn’t care for it any longer. Ha.
SO NOT TRUE!
Denver draws amazing musical acts period, but finding EDM shows can be a little tricky. So, how do you locate these fantastic EDM shows in Denver and the surrounding areas? Let us help you! Continue reading
How To… Survive & Enjoy a Broncos Game at Mile High Stadium
Last year, we spent a lot of time at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium. This year was totally different; thanks to a friend passing along 4 tickets, we were able to see one Bronco’s game – Broncos Vs. Raiders in Game 10. Oddly enough, we saw the Broncos play the Raiders last year; maybe we should just start a tradition?
Games can be frustrating, and for many more reasons beyond terrible runs and hurt players. We recognize this, and made a list of Helpful Hints & Tips for when you, your family, and friends head down to Mile High Stadium to watch the Broncos play. Of course, a lot of these can be applied to any sports game or concert viewing…
How To… Store Bikes for Efficiency
We live in a one-bedroom apartment in Cap Hill. It’s definitely not the smallest, but really… how huge do 1 bedroom apartments get?
We have 4 bicycles and 1 frame currently, thanks to our two newest editions from State Bicycle Co’s Black Friday “Mystery Bike Sale”. Steve and I each paid $300, provided our size requirements, and had two random bikes shipped to us. Merry Christmas to US.
Our savior has been this bad boy:
Keep in mind that it’s rated for 2 bicycles, however we have stacked 4 on it and all is well. We have the heaviest bikes on the bottom, the blue bike (“Devil in a Blue Dress”) weighing in at just under 30 pounds. Total weight on the rack right now, 4 bikes total, is about 100 lbs; maybe slightly over.
There are tons of racks that can actually mount flesh against the wall, however these are usually single bike mounts and typically cost more than the Racor Pro pictured above. Cool thing about the single, hand-crafted bike mounts is that they’re definitely more stylish, and can be made from recycled materials. We like how some of them have little mini shelving units for your gear, again catering to people who need that efficiency factor.
We found this cool item on Etsy, made by a Colorado company:
We usually hang our helmets and gear on the handles of the bike, or store in our bike bags in the closet or beneath the bikes.
Outside can get pretty sketchy for us downtown, so we prefer the indoors where our bicycles can be kept safe and sound. How do you usually store your bikes? Any companies you love grabbing gear from? Share your awesomeness with us.
