Just shy of two years ago, we decided to move from the trail mecca of Golden, Colo. (complete with across-the-street trail access) to Denver. While I loved having trail access out my front door, I found climbing in a car to go anywhere exhausting and tough on my carbon consciousness.

After some safety announcements, a reminder that we are ambassadors for the cycling world, and a review of the course, we were off. And almost immediately several cyclists broke the safety recommendation of not cycling on the wrong side of the road as we wove our way through Golden and up to Lookout Mountain. The in-town section was well staffed by volunteers and police, with even a few spectators cheering us on as we travelled up 19th Street. Read more
