This is a guest post by Ed, who spent some time in Colorado last week and did some killer riding.

Just outside of Denver 20 min from Golden CO near the Coors brewery.

Steve and Bret from Niner Bikes were nice enough to let me demo a pre-production WFO 9 140mm travel Free Ride/DH bike for the week in Denver. Steve is center and Bret to the right and manager of Golden bike shop to left.
We started out around 7:30 am with a group from Golden Bikes who led us on there morning before work ride (most of them rode there bikes from town up to White Ranch. We started with a long climb up a fire road for about 2 3 miles (great way to get acclimated to the altitude while getting over pneumonia).
My buddy Chris with Bret from Niner on right sporting a White Jet 9.
WFO on right about to descend Long Horn Trail just after Maverick.
Close up of WFO (super stiff great climber and descender).
Tough rocky climb with some ledge and steps on Long Horn.
Bret, Chris, Mike and Steve on Right. Great trails and great people to ride them with.
WFO 9 work of art, great workmanship and it shows in how it rides.
The Rockies Wow just amazing views everywhere. It was unusually wet for this time of year so every thing was green.
Steve and Bret after a touch Climb. I cleaned it on the WFO.
We took Whippetree down lots of switchbacks and banked turns.
Tough Downhill on Longhorn. Switchbacks so tight with water bars at the apex. Poor Chris he wiped hard and one of the Golden shop guys flatted.
Great mountain view for Whippletree

If you ever get a chance to visit Denver be sure to include this ride. Denver is the most bike friendly city I have been to,Wilmington could learn some lessons from it. All the schools and public facilities are connected by bike paths that are completely separate from the roads, kids can safety bike to schools and people can commute to work or shops.
