In the Five Points neighborhood of Denver, there’s a small bike shop called Chocolate Spokes. The building was once a drug den, but architect Gregory Crichlow thought it had potential. So he took it over and began building and fixing bikes for the local community. Chocolate Spokes, from writer Brendan Leonard and editor Aidan Haley, tells Crichlow’s story.
