    Steady Boulder Road Rides, Visiting for a week

    Hey,

    I am visiting Boulder for a week. I searched on this forum, but it seems most rides and riders start or are in Denver, didnt find anything for Boulder.

    I will be staying at a Hotel, no car, Im bringing my road bike with me.
    Im free all day, so I want to put in a few hours everyday.
    Any websites or links I can try to find? I dont mind riding in a group or by myself.
    Where might one find nice steady rides starting and finishing in Boulder?
    Thanks

    contact University Cycle. Left Hand Canyon, Peak to Peak, Lyons, Flagstaff are some of the popular rides....all involve some serious climbing...bring some big cassettes

    enjoy

    What do you mean by steady, no climbing? Most of the classic rides in Boulder climb and they are incredible rides. If you are looking at non-climbing rides, you could do Boulder to Fort Collins or something like that. There is lots of riding on the plains, but it doesn't get much attention because of all the epic stuff to the west.

    Just go to Map My Ride and search Boulder - lots of rides there, all you can eat... or want.

    Dark Star is right - you have to have a better idea of what you want to do before you go - some of the rides are truly epic, some are classic (but not epic), some are in the country and bucolic and some are just average... Just ask here - or there - and you'll get lots of opinions

    Should be a great week, enjoy!

    Thanks fir the replies everyone.
    I guess when I meant steady I meant not a training ride with interval training or anything crazy.

    I love hill, mountains, and anything to do with climbing.

    Im in Boulder now, im going to go visit a bike shop right now. I am staying right by University Cycle, so ill drop in there.
