    commuting path resource?

    i live in arvada, and work near Havana and Yale. wondering if there is an "All bike path" resource available.


    the beginning plan is to stil drive, but park further and further away. once ive built a little endurance, and the summer weather and light arrive, id like to try a once or twice a week full ride!

    currently looking at getting a 29er. sold my last bike a year ago and have regretted it ever since. hoping i can stick this out and lose some of this weight i accrued during un-employment.

    thanx for the help!

    from Bike Denver: BikeDenver.org Bicycle Maps of Denver

    The Denver Bicycle Touring Club map is good.

    Realistically, an "all bike path" route will take you dozens of miles out of your way.

    Bicycle Colorado is a good place to start. I had it scoped out from there before moving to The Far Side.

    Pick up an old 27er on CL, singlespeed it out and commute rapidly on skinny tires.

    lulz, wut he said too^

    ride in the roadway and take the friggin lane

    sure, use a path when you can, but combinations work best in most cases out here

    just beware of rabid "mountain bikers" who barge on cyclists in the roadway, as some in here profess to do

    thanx for the replys! sorry for the confusion, by "all bike path" i meant a collection of every bike path. so that i could map the best way in. all paths would be almost impossible i think! haha. im currently perusing CR as we speak. found a decent giant OCR3 for sale. couple other goodies on here too.

    Once you get downtown-ish, the Cherry Creek Path will be a great route to get out by Havana and Yale. I commuted out that way for a few years, its a great ride.

    Depending on where in Arvada, an all path route would probably involve Ralston Cr to Clear Cr to Platte River to Cherry Cr trail. You can download a Google Earth overlay of a trail network that does it's best to avoid on street routes. GeoBiking.org
