        • Hwy 36 – Lefthand Canyon – Lee Hill Drive

          Submitted by David on April 28th, 2011

          This ride is a little longer than the Olde Stage ride but has alot of the same features. This may sound familiar but the ride starts at the corner of Broadway and Lee Hill Drive in North Boulder. You can ride this loop in either direction but I prefer going counter clockwise. This way you get a little more of a warm up on 36. Read more
