colorado rides
 
i'm heading out to colorado at the end of june and was hoping for some suggestions on rides out there. a buddy and i are going to camp at night at ride a ski resort or two. i'm flying in friday evening and flying out monday evening, so saturday and sunday are ride days.

winter park is out because we don't want to do the fat tire classic, which happens to be that weekend.

recommendations are greatly appreciated. doesn't have to be a resort, although, i'm not flying my bike out there and will need to rent...we both mostly do XC, nothing super technical, but we aren't afraid of a challenge.

crested butte or fruita

EDIT: damn, you have almost no time?

check out http://trailcentral.com/trail/index.php for rides closer than CB or Fruita. Perhaps Summit County.

yeah, work is a little stingy on vacation time. gotta use it sparingly, otherwise it's gone before i know it.

thanks for the link. checking it out now.

For something close to Denver, try the Buffalo Creek area (it's on the website). Great riding, not terribly technical and a pretty area, even if it is in the middle of a burned forest.

Around Breckenridge look for the Peaks trail (Pictures here and minimal directions here) Peaks trail sees lots of traffic but it's also a lot of fun.

Lots of other stuff in the Frisco/Breckenridge area and you can easily rent bikes there.
