Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What are you referring to, my pic? If so, the Denver metro area has several hundred miles of connected Multi Use Paths like this, that are segregated from the roads. This one was at the top of Mt Carbon (which sounds more ominous that it is) in Bear Creek Lake Park in Lakewood, CO.

Yes, it was the concrete contrast with the surroundings. Pretty nice to have extensive multi-use trails there.

Straight ahead, there's an overlook with a rest room shared with the golf course and fresh water in pre COVID days. Take a left and you are down in the valley, one of the prettiest places in the Denver area, with paved and segregated trails running north to Golden or south to Chatfield State Park. It's pretty much a road biker's paradise.

Don't tell anyone. Colorado is crowded enough as it is.

I used to love that ride and the climbs in PV when I was living in Hermosa as a USC grad student.
