DENVER (CBS4) – Bicyclists can ride from Denver to Glenwood Springs without having to jump on Interstate 70. The grand opening for the final section of the I-70 bike route system happened on Wednesday.

The recently completed 2.4 mile section of the path means cyclists can skip the harrowing ride on the shoulder of I-70 near Chief Hosa.

    Please Note: This doesn’t mean you have a bike path from Denver to Glenwood, only that we no longer have to ride the suicide stretch from near Genessee Mountain to the the Evergreen/Bergen Park exit on I-70. Most of this ride is still on roads, particularly the whole section up and over Loveland Pass as well as the long ride from Vail to Glenwood Canyon. Still getting off of I-70 is a great improvement and thanks to all those who made it possible.

    Thank you Roger. Both 9 and 4 both have these sad excuses for a story, no map, a total of about 50 words, and both say you can ride all the way from Denver (9 says DIA) to Glenwood…ok where’s the trail? Journalism is dead.
