Judging by the photos our Marissa Shevins brought back from this week's Denver Cruiser Ride, we might have had a tough time guessing the theme if we didn't already know what it was. Some riders followed it pretty closely, others tweaked it in interesting ways and a slew of folks simply did their own thing. We answer the question at the bottom of the post. Check out the photos below.

This week's Denver Cruiser Ride theme was "Road Warriors," and that was appropriate, since the weather was positively apocalyptic -- or at least it rained a bit. That didn't stop the Cruisers, though, and as a bonus, their end-of-the-world costumes helped repel the moisture. Check out Jake Shane's photos of the fun below.

This week's Denver Cruiser Ride theme pays tribute to one of cinema's greatest masterpieces -- 1988's circus-centric Big Top Pee-wee -- on the occasion of star Paul Reubens's birthday. Some riders got their Pee-wee on, as it were, while others let their inner animals out of the cage. Photographer Jake Shane was on hand to capture the action.
