Olde Stage Road is a favourite Boulder bike ride and the classic introduction to hill climbing in Boulder, with a relatively short and straight forward climb up the popular Front Range road with a fun descent down the backside! From the parking lot off of Lee Hill Dr., ride west towards the mountains. The road will curve north. Continue heading straight climbing uphill via Olde Stage Rd.
