Denver Road Rides

Golden - Lookout Mountain

Classic ride that starts near to doors of the Coors Brewing Company and ends in the clouds. The climb is not long, only 1627ft of elevation gain but it does that in a little over 12 miles. Views of Denver can be seen from the ascent and you might even spot some wildlife too. The course is also home of the very popular annual Lookout Mountain Bike race so if you think you are fast then join in.

Difficulty: Moderate

Deer Creek Canyon

Great climbing ride that starts near Wadsworth and C-470. There is over 3000' of climbing on this route so bring your climbing legs.

Difficulty: Difficult
