This climb is in the center of the bike universe - the unbelievably bike friendly Boulder Colorado (See PJAMM's Boulder, CO climb area page for more details). See Routes in Area for the proximity of other climbs to this one. Just across Boulder Canyon Drive is the US #121 Magnolia Road. You can ride to these bike climbs via the Boulder Canyon climb, although there is a lot of moderately traveling motor vehicle traffic on that route.
