    Urban riding questions

    so yesterday my buddy and i hit downtown denver for our first urban experience and we had a blast...was wondering where everyone goes for their urban adventures?? we hit the area around the capital from nw denver and looped around by coors field, through a big parking garage (scary with the oil on the road) and back through riverside park...fun way to see the city and lots of fun launching stairs and such...

    Boulder's CU campus is a good locale as well.

    Civic Center park is pretty fun to bomb those stair sets, also the Qwest escalators, but those aren't entirely too "legal". I suggest just going down there and finding most of it. We have some normal routes, but I couldn't give you directions. I just know we turn right at the clock tower, or whatnot.

    We always ride Sundays, you are more then welcome to come join us. PM me if you are interested.

    yeah we went by that but it was crowded and the sign said no wheels over 20", so we figured at least when its busy we should obey the rules....or shouldn't we have?

    ... and if we just ...

    No - you shouldn't have - we've been going there for 3 years and the best part is when the cops show up on motorcycles and start riding through the park - they only give the BMXers (most of whom are very cool) sh1t for having pegs on - we have never had them harass us.
