Bobby Weidmann, the founder of Bikalope Tours, has lived in Colorado for many years. He is originally from Georgia, like the founders of Auraria, but has since adopted Denver as his home town. He is an avid bicyclist and prefers to bike as a way of life and not just as a pastime. For his first three and a half years he lived in Denver he did not even own a car.
Bobby does not guide much anymore, but he is with us on every tour because he developed them. His intimate knowledge of Denver’s urban fabric brings this perspective to life through his narratives of the city.
