Planning on hitting the slopes this weekend? Well we’ve got the perfect place to enjoy some snow-Breckenridge! If you’re OK with a little traffic on the side of the hills, you should check out the Dew Tour, which kicks off this Thursday, the 11th, and runs through Sunday the 14th. This event is a showcase of action winter sports- specifically freestyle skiing and snowboarding. How awesome would it be to see these professionals cutting through the snow and doing the unthinkable? Check out this video for a preview of some of the events, then dig out your gear and hit the slopes this weekend!
Yes, you read that right! On December 6th at 12:30pm at the Mead St. Station in Denver, you can feel free in a little bikini, dressed as Santa and running. The Santa Speedo Dash is set up to have some crazy fun! Just a heads up- you Must be 21 to participate in this dash.
The run will begin with a little warm up- a free shot at the start line! Then everyone will strip down to their speedos and Santa hats and run for a mile. At the end of the run you’ll receive free beer, free food, and a whole lot of fun!
What better way to show your holiday spirit than to run around denver in winter with very little clothing?
‘Tis the season to be thankful! Everyone is preparing the turkey, gathering around their tables and reciting what they’re thankful for. MyHandleBar, too, is greatful for many things!
Our list includes the stuff that keeps us going day to day: beer, mustaches, breweries, bikes… And, of course, our riders!! So this week’s blog is meant to simply say this- thank you, riders, for your support of MyHandleBar and for joining in on our wild adventure. We hope you love peddling around town and pub crawling with us as much as we love taking you for the ride!
Here at MyHandleBar, we support Movember. The more Mustaches, the better, we say!!
In Denver City Park this Saturday, November 22 at 9:00am, the great Mustache Dache will kick off! Yes, we know this is a little last minute, but this is a cause to get behind! Men, women and children are all invited to embrace their inner Mario or Luigi and participate in this slightly irreverent 5k. All participants receive a t-shirt and mustache finisher’s medal, plus access to the post-race festivities, with photo booth, costume contest, food, and plenty more!
Tickets are $45 for individuals, $40 for those on a team and $20 for kids! Sign up and enjoy this brisk weather with a little warm mustache under your nose!
Have you had the chance to spend some time in Vail yet? Well, if not, we highly suggest you do! Vail may seem like just a strip of buildings along the highway, but once you get in to it, we’d say it’s more of a labyrinth of great ski shops, good resturants, hotels and cozy fireplaces! The Lionshead Plaza is full of shopping for everyone, whether you’re looking for some new ski boots to a classic Vail sweatshirt to take home, you’re going to find good products. The buildings resemble something you’d expect to find in the Alps and are fun to explore. Love skiing and snowboarding? The lift is right next to the shops making for easy repairs and access to food fast! Check out the Blue Moose for for some gold pizza.
Want a low key, inexpensive bar? Head over to The Altitude Billiards and Sports Bar inside the Evergreen Lodge. They have some great craft beer on tap and you can play pool while you sip it down. Another fun place is Bart and Yeti’s in the Lionshead Plaza. This place is a down-to-earth pub not far from the lift!
Of course, as true Coloradans, we have to say the best time to explore this town is during the winter- big fluffy snowflakes and all the Evergreen trees sure do make for a great time!
