    Lyons, Longmont, Golden advice?

    I hope to be visiting the Front Range in mid to late July for some riding and scouting for rental property options for a possible future move. I'll be in one or more of the subject areas for about a week, and wondering if anyone can suggest a place to camp, or low cost motels. It will just be me and the bike, and if camping I will sleep in the vehicle. Thanks for any ideas.

    Get a Colorado Gazetteer mapbook and find camping spots in the national forest along forest roads. Other options include trespassing in the woods or camping with retirees in trailer parks. Please, no campfires right now. Illegal in most places other than forest service campgrounds.

    Rides: get a ride book: REI has like a dozen of them, local libraries each have them. You'll need it for route finding anyway. We can say a bunch of trail names but what does that tell you? Take some time the traditional way, books!, and get you edjumacated.

    Since I'm a nice guy and I assume you are like 21, try the Jeffco Open Space website for Golden area trails.

    Thanks for your reply and the info.
    Not really looking on MTBR for ride routes. I know some rides from previous visits to the areas, and will find others from LBS and other riders.
    And I haven't been "like 21" for abut 43 years.
    Thanks again.
