    GoG is a great place to ride trails or road. I spent a lot of time there last summer before I moved up to Denver. I still plan on loading the bike up and riding down there at least a few times this summer as well.

    Then again I also spend a lot of time there in the Jeep heading up to Rampart Range to do some shooting.

    Red Rocks outside of Denver is a nice place since you are up there!

    I will have to go over and check it out. Is it mostly terrain or paved trail riding?

    It has a lot of hard packed dirt trails, just across the road is Dakota Ride, this is technical but a lot of fun. There is really a lot up there to do, what part of Denver are you in?

    My mountain bike needs something like that. It usually just gets to jump curbs or hop frozen snow piles. Nice pics thanks for sharing.

    Hmmm.... So all the trails I know would be a few min drive at least. Red Rocks wouldn't be to bad of a drive. I have found a lot in Golden. I will search through and see if I have any pics!

    Beautiful pictures! Compared to where I ride, that looks like the moon. Looks like a great place to take a MTB.
