If there’s such thing as a pop culture power couple, Tran and Josh Wills are Denver’s leading contenders. Together, they’ve channeled their imaginations, instincts and energy into creative start-ups ranging from a fashion boutique showcasing local talent (The Fabric Lab) to a hip b&b for Denver visitors eager to depart from the beaten tourist path (Queen Anne Bed & Breakfast). They’ve also found time to open their own gallery — Super Ordinary —which will play host to the 2011 edition of ARTCRANK Denver, a poster show featuring affordable artwork created by local artists and designers.
This year’s ARTCRANK Denver will feature the work of 30 artists, with a mix of returning show veterans and new talent. The show will open on Friday, September 2 at 6:00pm at Super Ordinary, and also include a Saturday showing from noon until 6:00pm. Admission is free, and limited edition prints of all posters will be sold for $40 on both days.
Boulder East’s PoolBike program assists your company with setting up and managing bikes. The PoolBike program is one of Boulder East’s most popular program with currently 20 different companies and 36 bikes.
The bikes can conveniently be used for errands, lunch, off-site meetings during the work day instead of driving. PoolBikes provide all the benefits of biking - personal health and environmental benefits - plus they add to employer’s benefits such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
An online PoolBike manager allows the program to run smoothly with very little administrative intervention. An employee checks out a bike on-line. It then can be used to calculate miles ridden, gas saved, calories burned and C02 saved. Plus it displays the top rider in each company.

Colorado Towns Measure Impact of Bike Race
Denver Business Journal
Date: Tuesday, August 30, 2011, 7:04am MDT
Towns along the route of the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge are glad for the publicity being part of the course generated, but the economic impact varied, according to news reports.
The professional bike race didn’t bring in the 20,000 visitors Aspen was expecting, the Aspen Times reports, but restaurants saw a slight increase in business after the race’s stop in Aspen on Wednesday.
Restaurants were jammed in Breckenridge and retailers reported a big bump in sales, the Summit Daily News reports. More than 50,000 people lined the route as the race went through Breckenridge.
Join us for a volunteer work session to get the Valmont Bike Park ready for cyclocross training, Wednesday Worlds, and this season's CX races.
We will be prepping the cyclocross segments of the park by clearing weeds, raking, picking rocks, and pulling up erosion matting. Please help us get these areas dialed for CX training and racing and build on our partnership with the Parks Dept as we head into the CX season and Wednesday morning rides.
The work will be dirty, scratchy, and maybe wet, so come prepared. Wear work gloves and heavy duty shoes. Tools will be provided.
