    Heading to Laramie in July - Help?

    Few questions:

    -any place I can rent a decent bike in town?
    -how far away is Curt Gowdy and Happy Jack? Can I get a quick few hours in before I get back to the family?
    -anyone want to guide a tourist around? The pay is terrible but the company is quite terrific.

    1. Not sure about rentals in Laramie. Try All Terrain Sports, Laramie Ski & Bike, or the Pedal House - which are the local shops. I know Bicycle Station in Cheyenne rents Specialized bikes.

    2. Curt Gowdy is about 35 miles away. Happy Jack is 10 miles away. You can definitely get away for a few hours! Curt Gowdy is more technical and slow going whereas Happy Jack is more speedy, but you can still find some technical, fun trails to ride if that's your thing. I banged out 18 miles today at Happy Jack in two hours, to give you an idea. If you want specific trail suggestions, just ask!

    3. Depends when you come in July, but I might be willing to meet up to show you the trails! I live in Cheyenne, but Laramie is my hometown.

    Curt Gowdy is almost exactly half way between Cheyenne and Laramie. That makes it 23 miles from each.
