About the Tour

For anyone who loves ice cream, bicycles, and neighborhood gazing as much as I do - this route is for you! I've mapped out the best ice cream spots in Denver, based on their gourmet-style scoops as well as their location in explorable districts. In case four ice cream stops sounds excessive, you can justify it by the fact that you'll be pedaling along by bicycle. Use of B-Cycle (Denver's public bike share system) is encouraged. A sweet taste of Denver on two wheels, with plenty of inside scoops!

You can use the Uber and Lyft apps to find bikes and ebikes to rent nearby.

Tour Producer


Cynthia Ord

I'm a Denver native and street taco enthusiast with nomadic tendencies. During my long stints abroad, you're likely to find me blabbering in broken Spanish about my Mile High hometown and its mountainous backyard.
When I'm in Colorado, you can find me pedaling a mountain pass on my road bike, hiking a 14er, or working my 9-5 at a cannabis tour company (yes, that's a thing!). I also host Airbnb guests and whoever else I can convince to come visit.

How VoiceMap Works

Focus on your surroundings, not the screen

VoiceMap’s audio tour app uses GPS to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Just install it, then download your tour and go to the starting point to begin your walk, drive, cycle, train trip or even boat ride.

Follow a route with turn-by-turn-directions

Tours follow a route from a fixed starting point. This is how we provide turn-by-turn directions. It also helps publishers tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. But you can use Resume to pick up a tour from the closest location whenever you like.

Listen as many times as you like

You can listen to your tours as often as you like using both the VoiceMap app and the VoiceMap website. Your access to tours doesn’t expire.

Take virtual tours anywhere

Just select Virtual mode in the VoiceMap app to listen to tours at home – or anywhere else. You’ll see the option after you download the tour. You can also listen to the whole tour here on the website.

Buy for less on and sync

Once you’ve purchased a tour, it’s added to your VoiceMap library. If you sign into the app using the same method you used on the website, you’ll have access to your full library of tours in both places.

Use VoiceMap offline

The VoiceMap app works entirely offline if there’s no data connection, so you don’t have to pay roaming fees. Just download the tour over WiFi before you get started.

Directions to Starting Point

Little Man Ice Cream in Highlands (a.k.a. LoHi) is located at 2620 16th St. Best ways to reach the starting point are by bicycle, a rideshare app, or a 20-minute walk from Union Station - downtown Denver’s public transport hub. Highly recommended: Use Denver’s B Cycle bike share system. Starting point is across the street from the 16th and Boulder station.
