Outdoor Activities around Boulder



Boulder was voted the number one cycling city in the country by Outdoor magazine! They cited the number of sunny days we have here, which frequently number up to 300, as well as the dedicated cycling infrastructure. The city boasts over 300 miles of bike paths, and a culture and consciousness that means that in a recent survey over half the residents felt the paths were safe. If you get a flat or need some bike related equipment, you will find no shortage of cycling shops to help you out. As with all outdoor activities, Coloradans find no excuses to stay in-doors, in fact, snowfall or cold weather seem to be taken as a challenge to find new ways to go outside, have fun, and stay active. Cycling is no exception, there are numerous places to strike out and do some winter mountain biking, and once the roads clear a bit, road cyclists will be out there too, zipping up and down the mountain roads and along scenic straightaways.
