I spent this last weekend riding the flat and rolling dirt roads of Boulder County on my cross bike. The knobby 35c tires were perfect on the grippy dirt and packed snow of the local farmland backroads.
We're lucky to live in an area that offers so much diversity in riding. To me, dirt roads this time of year hit the spot. It was good to get out and just spin.
Even though it's slightly uphill all the way back to Lyons, I enjoy the ride west on Hwy 66. The views make it all worthwhile.
