Denver, Colorado - City on the Side sidecar tours

Post by DrFaulken » Tue Jun 11, 2019 9:09 am

We flew out to Denver to ride around the Mile High City with Scott Kirkwood of City on the Side ( https://www.cityontheside.com ). Scott is closing out his 30+ year career, and decided he wanted to do something different with his life. Two years ago he started City on the Side, and worked full time during the week and gave sidecar tours during the weekend. Now he has 3 bikes and a crew of other Ural riders to handle the demand.

This was the first time I rode in the sidecar. It was really weird at first -- giving up the control, and the "sameness" of being on a Ural, but experiencing it from a different perspective in the chair. I had a great time, smiled a ton, and was pleased to be able to concentrate on waving and talking to people instead of the road :)

We rode with Scott and one of his "sidecarists" Phil on Saturday, and sat down for a chat on Sunday. Here's our first episode.

The next time I'm in Denver I hope you go for a spin on one of the tours. Kudos to Scott for taking the leap and creating such a cool business. :cheers:
