Well what do you mean by "areas" ?

There are a lot of riding areas around Colorado, unlike the east coast, most of our state is National Forest or BLM land (not privately owned) I can't speak for leadville. The problem with CO is that most of the "good stuff" is under the "white Stuff" a good portion of the year.

But we have several tracks *near* Denver if that is your fancy. We have over 100 miles of multiple use trail (read quad trail) within and hour of most parts of Denver, and add another 80+ miles worth another 40 minutes south of that. Old mining trails 30 minutes west of town in the mountains. And about a gazillion other areas to ride if you are willing to drive a ways. From Denver you can be in Moab Utah in around 5 hours as well.

Perhaps you could narrow it down a bit. Yes, there are riding areas in Denver, and Leadville. The geography is puzzling though. Are you considering Leadville for a riding destination? I would not call Leadville a riding destination (There is riding there) I did the Leadville Trail 100 last year. What an awesome ride. Or did you mean motorcycling?

well, were looking at houses in leadville, but will be making a trip to denver every once and a while. i thought i had heard of a couple track near denver, and some trails near leadville? also looking at our own land so i might make my own small track.

There is some good riding in Leadville. Nothing I would call spectacular though. I would recommend having two bikes. One for Leadville Elevation 10,200' and one for Denver elevation 5280' if you do not want to re-jet your bike for every trip to Denver (unrealistic I know). You will get real good a jetting if you want your bike to run good.

yea, i thought about that. the rejetting wouldnt be too bad, 10 minutes and id be fine as long as i had a main jet. only problem is i wouldnt be able to see how it works at each height until i got there. anyways, thanks guys, ill check them all out.
