CO Springs places to live near road cycling
I'm going to be moving to the springs soon and need to find a place to live. I'm familiar with CO but not the springs very well.
I really want to live close to some good area's to go on long and not so long road bike rides (I love hills).
I was looking more towards north Colorado Springs since it seems less population dense but at the same time I have no way of knowing if it is good for road cycling.
Btw, i'm looking to live in an apartment so if you can suggest good apt complex's that fit the above criteria that'd be sweet too.
I've done some minimal road riding here but not enough to have a strong opinion. Try asking theses guys for road riding opinions.
I don't know anything about apartments.
I'd recommend the west side of town (west of I-25) anywhere between Colorado and Garden of the Gods.
Agreed. Also Cheyenne Blvd. and Cheyenne Rd. both have a lot of rentals along them, would be perfect launching point for great west side rides.

Not out east or up North, unless you like driving to ride..
Anything east of the Interstate is a suburban nightmare. Stay west.
