Ride Ideas in Denver Area
A buddy and I are planning on a trip to CO Sept 4-11. What can you guys tell me about day rides around that area? We are trailering out and should arrive the evening of the 4th and head home on the 11th.
We are planning on staying in Golden, CO and doing day trips from there to see as much of the area as we can. We are thinking about 300 miles or so a day riding. We want to see Royal Gorge for sure, and figured that would be one of the day trips we take. We were also thinking about hitting Cabela's over in NE for a second days riding. If we do both of these, it will still leave us with 3-4 days to see the beauty of the mountains so I am looking for suggestions.
We may go kayaking out there one of those days.
What info can you guys give me about that area, good routes to take to see the best scenery, weather conditions that time of year?
