Here in the SW Denver metro area and the adjacent foothills there are bikes on the roads and people are used to it.
Even up the canyons where the roads aren't very wide, there are plenty of bikes.
Does anyone regularly ride the roads out east of Parker, or around Franktown, or ride between Castle Rock and Denver?
I've ridden Elephant Rock before but would like to hear about individual experience.
I'd be interested to hear about any of them as those are the 3 areas I'm considering moving to. I would like to commute
from there to Highlands Ranch at least sometimes. Also would like to just hop on the bike from my front door and ride.
There are fast roads out there with little or no shoulder. I have no problem with riding on roads like that but the last thing
I want is to buy a place that I can't ride away from without a high risk of being hit.
