    I'm contemplating a small (3 days or so) trip to Colorado for some = mountain biking. Any comments
    on the Colorado Springs area?

    Moab, Fruita and Durango are just too far way for me right now.

    Let's hear some comments.

    I've been reading this group for a while now, so first I'd like to = say "Hi" and thank you all
    for the always entertaining posts :) But = on the topic of Colorado Springs, there are a few
    good ones in and near = the city. I spent a summer out there working at a bike shop and riding =
    the local trails. Palmer Park has some great slow, steep technical = stuff. The Chutes/Captain
    Jacks is a great ride in the hills around town = (though of course I don't remember how to get
    there), and Rampart = Reservoir (sp?) has some cool scenery and relatively easy riding. =
    There's also a lot of stuff I'm forgetting. Guess it's been too long... I would suggest popping
    into Criterium Bicycles (preferably not on a = busy weekend afternoon) and asking the guys and
    girls working there. = They'll be able to give you some good directions. When I was there =
    pretty much everybody rode at least road and mountain. A fun game would = be to go in and ask
    for "Chris" since there are (well, were anyway) = like 5 different Chris-es. Good times. =20
    Anyway, have a great time there. Despite the sprawling corporate = hell the city has become, the
    surrounding areas are beautiful. Don't = know what the security is like at the Air Force
    Academy, but if they'll = let you in, go drive or ride around, it's a gorgeous place.
