If it makes a difference, Fort Collins is essentially flat and most of the roads are wide, so commuting is a breeze. I could get almost anywhere in town in 15 minutes or less.
You can get a workout if you ride out to the hills, and there are some killers, like the road up to Horsetooth Reservoir.
Also, don't forget to replace the QR seatpost clamp with a bolt. I rode standing up for a week, until I scraped together the $ for a replacement seat and post.
