Attendance at yesterday's Race for the Cure in downtown Denver was estimated at 30,000. Even though the total is roughly equal to the number of participants in 2013, the sum still must be considered progress given sharp declines the preceding two years: Approximately 50,000 took part 2011and 40,000 in 2012, with the dip attributed to a (since-reversed) decision by Susan G. Komen for the Cure to end its partnership with Planned Parenthood a couple of years back. Still, photos from the Susan G. Komen Colorado Facebook page show that those who took to the streets early yesterday were in high spirits. Check out a sampling of photos below, and to see more, click here.

More photos below.
Last year, we showcased demolished Colorado urban explorer sites as featured on the website uer.ca. But that post barely scratched the surface of photos and information about dearly departed local landmarks captured just ahead of the wrecking ball. We've assembled pics and uer.ca text from five more places: a graffiti-tastic water tank in Morrison, Englewood's Cinderella Twin Drive-In, Loveland's Cloverleaf Kennel Club, a Brighton location known as "The Orphanage," and the old Crossroads Mall in Boulder. Check them out below.

The 2014 Denver Cruiser Rides may not be over quite yet: Plans are in the works for an "Orange 'Night' Ride" in conjunction with the Broncos-Charges game on October 23. But the season officially concluded this week with Ullr Fest: Winter Wonderland, a theme that inspired some riders to cover up more than usual. Others, not so much. Scott Lentz captured the action.

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.

It's fair to say the post-Super Bowl blowout malaise that afflicted so many Broncos fans earlier this year is over: Prior to Denver's closer-than-it-should-have-been victory over the Indianapolis Colts, tailgaters at Mile High Stadium were incredibly amped for the new season, as our Eric Gruneisen discovered.

Photos: CSU Fans Care a Lot About Beating CU Footballers, CU Fans Just Want to Party

At Friday's Rocky Mountain Showdown, I was decked out in CU attire, since my daughters are students there. And when passing through the Rams' section of the parking lot, I tended to get one of two reactions. The first was: "Fuck you! Fuck CU!" And the second was "FUCK YOU! FUCK CU!"

Astonishingly, most CSU boosters maintained this level of passion throughout the game, during which CU blew a 17-7 third quarter lead by giving up 24 unanswered points to lose 31-17. The contrast between them and CU fans was illustrated by a series of Jumbotron juxtapositions. Shot of CSU section: Everyone going crazy! Shot of CU section: Bro looking at his phone.

Jake Shane captures some of these differences in photos on view below. Check them out here -- and click to see the complete CSU and CU Face Off at the 2014 Rocky Mountain Showdown slide show.
