You can’t find a road in Boulder with more riders per mile than this one on a Saturday morning. This ride follows a creek bed for 8 miles so the grade is never really that intense and given the popularity of this route the road has a kind shoulder for those who want to move away from traffic. Many cyclist start in Boulder but some choose to park at the base of the climb right next to Hwy 36. After 5 miles on the road you will see left turn, if you are felling strong that day and don’t need to get home to relive the spouse then turn left and ride another 10 miles to the alternative town of Ward, otherwise the majority of the riders stick to the right and 3 miles later you will enter the town of Jamestown. WARNING, stop at the stop sign in town, cops DO give tickets often to cyclist not stopping at that sign. In the town you can stop off a the general store/restaurant for supplies or for breakfast (common by locals). There is also water jugs provided for the cyclist. DO NOT use mother nature as your bathroom, that is a very easy way to get your baptism annulled and go straight to hell or bad karma your way.
