Cify of Golden proposes Jefferson Bikeway

The City of Golden today (May 20) officially offered to acquire a 2.76-mile stretch of right way along Indiana Street that is currently part of the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge.  The City’s offer will allow it to create what it will call the Jefferson Bikeway, as well as to provide needed roadway improvements on the Indiana Street corridor and protect the City and region from the impacts of unmitigated toll road construction.

First Ride of the Season

Although breezy, the 50+ degree temps today were perfect for a little ride around part of the Lariat Loop this afternoon.   I wasn’t the only one who had this idea – I bet I saw over fifty riders up on Lookout Mountain today.   I swung by Buffalo Bills Grave, rode Colorow Road past the Lookout Mountain Nature Center and Boettcher Mansion, and stopped for a drink of water at the Buffalo Herd Overlook at Genessee Park.

It wasn’t a long ride – maybe 15 miles, with a few hills to wake up the legs.  I was in the mood after getting my bike tuned up at Wheat Ridge Cyclery this week.   Those guys do great work, and I love looking around their huge selection of gear and clothing.

How about you – have you gotten out to ride yet this season?    Where do you like to get your bike worked on?
