Time Trial Possibilities near Golden

I would like to practice my TT on a flat-ish road that is uninterrupted for at least a few miles. Does that sort of thing exist near Golden?

Thanks,
Brian.

The approach to Coal Creek canyon is fairly flat and straight (section of road between 93 and where the climbing starts), but it's also a little bit sketchy in terms of traffic at peak hours. I think you might find some good flattish sections east of there as well, south and east of the old Rocky Flats plant. Wear some lead shorts.
