3 GREAT RIDES IN BOULDER COUNTYWe are lucky to have an endless list of great places to ride. Here are three to add to your list. Hogback Ridge Trail Why not mix a bike ride with a hike A fun option is to ride to the Hogback Ridge Trail and then hike From Boulder pedal up along 4th Street until it dead-ends at Linden Avenue. Cross the road and pedal along Wonderland Hill Avenue or the adjacent dirt trail to the multi-use paved path on the left. Take that trail then at the fork bear left cross over Poplar Avenue and pedal the crushed gravel path around Wonderland Lake all the way until it ends at the parking lot on Lee Hill Road. Lock up your bike and cross over Lee Hill Road to the Hogback Ridge Trail. Hike up to a high point and enjoy great views. Then hike back down and pedal back the way you came or along bike lanes on Lee Hill Road. Valmont Bike Park For all ages Whether you want to cruise the cross- country trails test your skills on dirt jumps or launch yourself in the air on the pump track Valmont Bike Park is the place to go. Theres even a tricycle track for riders in training plus frequent events and clinics. Located off Valmont Road in Valmont City Park and accessible by bike via the Goose Creek Greenway Trail Valmont Bike Park is open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. as weather and trail conditions allow. Visit ValmontBikePark.org.Milo Barkett pedals one of the parks rolling ramps. Nikki Javurek enjoys a spring ride to Hygiene. A bike to hike is a great way to experience Boulders awesome trails. HannahNordhaus ON A MOUNTAIN BIKE ON A ROAD BIKE BIKE 2 HIKE Hygiene 32 MILES ROUND TRIP FROM BOULDER With its gentle rolling terrain this is a popular route for road rides. From Boulder head north on Broadway until it runs into U.S. 36 State Route 7. There is a nice wide shoulder and on a sunny day youll be in good company with other cyclists. Travel about 12 miles and take a right on Hygiene Road then pedal 3.8 miles to this cozy little town. Make sure to stash some money for a snack or lunch at the Crane Hollow Cafe. Pedal home the same way or make it a loop and travel south from town on 75th Street right on Nelson Road left on 63rd Street to Diagonal Highway and back to Boulder.
