Welcome to the forums-so glad you've converted *grins* Trek and Cannondale make some nice rides if your still looking! Make sure you get fitted for your bike and if you're ever in Cali look me up!

Did lots of road bike riding on the Clear Creek Taril, the Ralston Creek Trail, the Little Dry Creek Trail and the Platte River Greenway Trail.

As you are likely aware, you can go on road bike trails out to Golden, north almost to Brighton, South to Chatfield Reservoir or Cherry Creek Reservior (and then south to Franktown), west to Bear Lake Park, East to Big Dry Creek, East to Lee Gulch, east and west on the C-470 Trail, using the Platte River Greenway as your main aretrial - all with only crossing about 5 roads (except for about 3 miles on the S. Cherry Creek Trail along Jordan Road) About 200 miles of riding or there abouts..

But, you already knew that!

Have fun.

welcome!

I mtb too, but I've been focused on pavement the last year or so. If you wanna ride, PM me. You live near some great pavement... between Lookout Mt. and Hwy 36 and all the legs up to the Peak-to-peak Hwy. Me jealous
