Frexing Denver

Saturday, February 18, 2012

I had a pretty cool adventure last week going to a convention in Denver. I rode my bike to the Frex stop, loaded it up on the bus, no problem, and got off in Denver. $11 for the ride, about the same as the cost of gas.

Then instead of driving over a 100 miles every day to attend the conference, I got a room through Stayed in a nice apt in the historic district 3 miles from the convention center for $101 total.

I got my conference fee comped because I was a speaker. So a three day conference in Denver with lodging and transportation cost about $150.

Plus I got the exercise of riding my bike everyday and the satisfaction of not being in traffic in a car.

The part where I fell on black ice and broke my wrist wasn't as great, but I'd do the trip again in a heartbeat. Put your bike on frex and take a trip up to Denver, it works great.

    I should do that. I'd love to ride the trail out to the Chatfield reservoir.
