I'm heading to the US in September for a couple of weeks, road tripping from Denver to Vegas with my wife and 18 month old.
The plan is to do some riding, some walking and some hanging out, stopping for at least a couple of nights in three or four places along the route. I've been to Utah and Arizona before so have an idea where will work for us but am unsure where would be best to go in the Colorado mountains?
From previous experience I'll be looking to go out riding early and will mainly be limited to 3-4 hour rides, then back to meet up and spend the afternoons driving around and heading out for some easier walks. I'll be the only one MTBing, but it would be great to hire a bike to take the little one out an about if there were suitable low-traffic routes.
Which towns should I consider the best compromise, also any recommendations for family friendly places to stay?
