Denver Cruisers to be featured in Travel Channel pilot with off-season ride
|The Cruisers on the town.|
"They're trying to capture the look and the feel of the Cruiser Ride as much as possible," Evans says. "Everyone's gonna come out and be themselves."
The ride meets at 7 p.m. at the Ginn Mill, which will be providing a first round of drinks, followed by a short downtown ride. Then, it's on to the Corner Office for an after-party featuring live music from Human Agency.
Given the cold weather, Evans says he isn't expecting the thousands that sometimes show up to their rides. But he notes that there are already more than a hundred people who say they'll be attending on the Facebook event page.
He adds, "This is more of a theater piece."
Evans says it'll be nice for Cruisers to get attention that's not negative.
"We get so much crap -- it's nice to hear the positive stuff and get that recognition...rather than just drunk assholes on bikes," he says.
Plus, the reality spot further cements Denver's growth as a bike-friendly city.
"How do you build that bike culture? You put in the facilities, you have a great advocacy group...and our job is to drive the culture," he says, adding, "The vibrancy of every city isn't ever focused on one thing. This is another facet...of Denver."
