Ft. Collins versus Boulder

Hi. single 30 something amateur bike racer (road), hiker just starting to look at subletting a place in CO for June and July.

Opinions on which is a better fit: Ft. Collins or Boulder?

Okay, I think that my question is way too broad. My bad.

How about this:

Is it reasonable to rent a place in Golden and be able to get to the rides out of Boulder pretty easily, that is by biking?

No. Golden is about a half hour drive on a fast road from Boulder.

Pretty much locked in a sublet for June in Boulder.

I hope there is a lot of racing.

Welcome! Where are you coming from?

I linked this somewhere else, not sure if it was for you... anyway, here's the race calendar

http://www.coloradocycling.org/sites...to_publish.pdf

you can look at the ACA site too, or usac, but sometimes not everything is on there until closer to the date.
http://www.coloradocycling.org/

You'll need an ACA license if you don't want to pay an extra $5 at each event (and possibly get stuck racing 5's, not sure about that). It's $25 and can be purchased at the ACA site above or the USAC site as an add-on to your license.

There are 2 weekday series - Table Mountain (Golden, 20 miles south) and Nationwide WholeFoods New Mark Merrill (Longmont, about 8 miles northeast).
