We're pretty fuckin bummed that Colorado is burning again, especially because one of the fires is taking out some homes of friends in Colorado Springs. If you want to support the fight against the fires, Wild Fire Tees is a good way to do it. They've set up a fund with the Pikes Peak Community Foundation to help them manage donations responsibly and transparently. And you get a nicely designed shirt to show your support of the relief effort.
Car/bike accidents and car/pedestrian accidents have been on a sharp incline in Denver. Sukle jumped at the chance to do some ads aimed at helping turn this trend around.
There’s so much stimuli these days, we thought if we could just remind drivers that pedestrians and bikers are always there and hard to see, that they’d pay just a little more attention to watching out for them. And, in turn, we’d be doing our part to help keep Denverites safe.
More strong work from the kings of sticking out outdoors.
The 5th annual Cactus Bike From Work Bash Presented by Primal is a party for bikes and their people. Tune-up that fixie, tuck your pant leg into your sock, and cruise on over. Boulder Beer is bringing kegs, and although your bike doesn't drink, you may. Don't let your bike go stag — be your bike's plus one.
This video was produced by and features the Cactus summer interns (solid work, you guys). The multi-part animated video series will follow soon.

Next time you're out riding or just fiddling around with your ride, shoot a video using Vine and drop the link on the new pet-project site of local dev Grant Blakeman – #SixSecondBikeRide. If he digs it, he'll include it on the site. If you dig riding, go check out the footage that's already there. It's a joyful experience.
The 14er Project is a grassroots venture conceived of by Denver's Nathan Downey that's committed to proliferating the knowledge and love of Colorado's 52 peaks over 14,000 feet. Every product is locally designed to whet your appetite for conquest and satisfy your desire to commemorate the climb.
The first product being offered is the 14er Summit Register. It's a limited edition print, and accompanying stamp and ink pad, that allows you to track each successful climb in a sophisticated way. Each register is unique, signed, numbered and screenprinted by hand in Colorado.
Six months ago, Evan Mann started Otherworldly Productions here in town — "a video production company that aims to create stimulating visual phenomena for local businesses, artists, musicians, agencies and brands." We wanted to introduce you to each other because we think they do super-solid work. If you're looking for that sort of thing, you should look them up.
