Wednesday, June 26, is Denver Bike to Work Day, and lots of Denver Public Library employees will be pedaling to their branch that day. Some of us ride to work several times a week or more! What does cycling have to do with technology? Lots of things, actually.
Denver is a fairly bike friendly city. There are great routes all over, bicycle and mixed-use trails, and roads with dedicated bike lanes. There are a few tools I use to find my way on two wheels.

Central Library, Gates Reading Room, Level 5
"Personal Geographies" is an exhibit of handmade, mixed media maps by Jill K. Berry and other artists. The show is in the Western History and Genealogy department, on Level 5 of the Central Library through March 31, 2012.
Did you see this article in the Denver Post about the Library's historical map collections? Trove of Maps at Denver Public Library takes explorer on historic trip (8/31/2010).
It talks about historic Sanborn Fire Insurance maps that show historical views of Denver and other places. "As buildings changed, the maps were updated with paste-overs.... It's like showing geologic layers of Denver."
