Oh yeah - Since you are in Lakewood -- we should meet at MoCo on some weekend that is perfect for everybody.
We(CSC) use to do so many rides starting from there, we should meet up there on a Saturday or Sunday and roll out in packs (No Wolf Pack Speeches would be required) - LOL
The best rides are up the canyons to the peak to peak highway. Although Left Hand Canyon is still in bad shape from the flood. But there is Golden Gate Canyon, Coal Creek Canyon, Boulder Canyon, and Saint Vrain Canyon. Or you can go to Estes Park, lots of cagers on the weekends in the park. Last weekend I went up Boulder Canyon and came down Saint Vrain to Lyons. I live in Firestone, east of Longmont. Been riding these roads since 1985. I didn't forget Clear Creek Canyon, there are just too many gamblers on their way to Blackhawk.
