Route from Pueblo CO to Black Hills
« on: February 19, 2009, 08:55:50 am »
I'm planning a cross-country trip this summer using a combination of ACA routes. I'm looking for a good route from Pueblo, Colorado to the Black Hills of South Dakota. Would like to stay close to the front range without actually riding all the high mountain passes, but am concerned about traversing the Denver area. Any Colorado riders out there that could help me with route planning?

Thanks!

Do you use GPS?  I have a .gpx files for routes from  just north of Colorado Springs to Castle Rock, then from south Denver to Golden, then I would have lots of alternatives for Boulder to Ft. Collins.

I don't have time to do a narrative from the GPS tracks, but would be more than happy to email them to you if that would help.  FYI, the Denver metro area itself can be traversed entirely on good bike paths, there may be a map on line somewhere.

You could also post over on bikeforums.net in the touring forum http://www.bikeforums.net/forumdisplay.php?f=47 there is a denver resident who posts over there who would probably have more info than I do.

Look me up when you ride through Boulder, if I'm in town and can help with anything, I'd be happy to.

ps... is this velovagabond from Marin?
