• The Climb to Ward

    This is a classic canyon ride from Boulder. The climb itself is not all that difficult BUT there are 16 miles of climbing and the last mile is steep. Start from North Broadway and head north on highway 36. Ride about 5 miles north and make a left on Lefthand Canyon. Read more

      Thanks to John Summerson for providing much of the content below from his great book – The Complete Guide to Climbing by Bike
      Colorado is filled with great riding and with its multiple mountains contains plenty of high altitude and solid climbing as well. This month’s ascent certainly qualifies as it is one of the most difficult in the state. Located near Boulder it is a steep monster and can test you. Read more

      • Hwy 36 – Lefthand Canyon – Lee Hill Drive

        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
