    Lookout

    I've ridden Lookout mountain west of Denver here twice this month and it's been great. This is the first time I've gone into the hills in January. The road itself and the ones around it are in good...

    To me it's all about how FAR the ride is. I'll go a few miles in below zero temps. My actual commute is about 20 miles and as the ride goes on it gets harder and harder to keep everything...

    A friend of mine does the FDR and PHP rides regularly. I'm considering joining in this Spring. From what I hear they are fast - average 25mph+ usually, and competitive. I think if you want to get a...

    I think I know what you mean and I'll say around 15mph, on the roads where bikes have full lane access and the speed limit is 25-35mph. No idea what the rest of your commute is like and no idea what...

    A mix of 2 or 4 lane roads, bike lane most of the time, suburban streets and MUP's. I'm on a MUP for about 9 of these miles. Start on the west side of Denver metro area, the low point after...

    That is funny, I feel exactly the same way. I'm closing in on 3000 miles of commuting for the year and maybe one day a month I got up excited to do it. But like you said, I am always glad I did,...

    Thanks for the coupon and the road report. I lived right on the border of the North Slope Recreation Area for a few years - some fun mountain biking up in there, and very isolated (at least it was)....

    You might try writing down the locations of some of your rougher areas of your commute and call the city about it. Don't know about Westminster so much but surprisingly I've seen rather quick results...

    I think someone else suggested this on this forum in the last few years. Today I did just that. Rode my Trek 2.1 from Bergen Park to the top. My wife met me there with my full suspension mountain...

    Second the thank you for posting. Just like in the US, there are nearly idyllic and not so nice cycling environments. They mentioned The Netherlands in this video - I was in Amsterdam recently and...

    I've had the exact same thing happen to me more than once, in the dark and in the daylight. Every time, as someone else mentioned, it was cell phone related.

    I draft and have been drafted. Only happens once or twice a year that I match speed and route with someone enough for it to happen. When it does we're usually doing around 25mph. Not a big deal, the...

    Actually I have a couple of slight variations I can make from day to day, but changing it too much makes it longer and it's already about 22 miles each way

    I commuted almost 500 miles in July, going home between 4 and 5:30pm most days. Pretty sure it was upper 90's to 100 a few times. Gotta say I love it. I fill up a 24 oz bottle of ice water and mix in...

    I would suggest Academy (21 then 83) out of Colorado Springs. You can head west on 105 through Monument from there or keep on 83 all the way into Parker then Denver.

    Blowing a red light = not slowing down at all.
    Running a red light = crossing the intersection while the light is red.
    Big difference. The former is always a risk, but if you stop, there is no...

    So I took the bike to my LBS. One of the derailleur bolts was loose, I didn't have the cable tight enough and the high limit screw needed a turn. The guy said I was "damn close" and he doesn't see a...

    Yeah well I already called them, told my story and asked when I could bring it in for a look. I don't think I need to be sheepish about it. Thanks for the advice all the same.

    Thanks, unfortunately that made no difference. Pretty frustrating because I feel like it's close but it keeps jumping from the biggest to smallest ring, and still feels too tight, like I will break...
