Request route advice from Boulder to Fort Collins (CO)PT
Jun 18, 2003 7:31 AM
I know lots of Front Rangers are on the board. I'm planning on riding from Boulder to Laramie, WY on July 3rd and would like the best advice on how to get from Boulder to Fort Collins (I can take it the rest of the way). I figure highway 287 is not the best choice...

Thanks!

sorry. I hardly ever visit this part of the board.

Boulder to Carter Lake to Masonville to Horsetooth and down into Ft. Collins. That would be the most beautiful and with enough hills to make it interesting. I could give you full details if you want.

More directly, out the diagonal (yes, it is a hway but has a great shoulder) to 287, then north straight into Ft. Collins. Boring, high traffic, but will get you there and is relatively bike friendly.

The other route adds hills, views, and some classic Front Range riding.
