I don't know of any true DH trails, but they are rare everywhere on the front range. Pueblo has some really nice freerideish trails by the resivoir (in addition to some great flowy XC stuff there). The problem is that you really only want to ride there between October and May--any other times are on the hot side.Any decent in town trails? How far of a drive to some good trails....AM to DH trails.
Yeah, it's worth a look for sure--especially if you're moving from somewhere without great biking. In terms of cost of living: Pueblo < Colorado Springs < Denver Metro < Ft. Collins < Boulder.The thought of moving up to CO. has entered my mind, but looking at the larger city areas south of Denver. My riding style is mainly AM, flowy trails with some technical. Heard Pueblo was really cheap cost of living, thought I'd check it out.
If you have a good circle of friends and a good job/living situation any place is a great place. They all have their positive and negative points which depend on your point of view.I've been a Pueblo resident for 5 years now, I used to live in Boulder, made the right choice. Yea it's a little warm in the summer, that's why I get my rides done before 11am or go out after 6pm. The rest of the year I ride anytime of day, I love it: where else can you ride with your dogs off leash and not get hassled, or even ride for 4 hours, not hit the same trail twice and only see 1 other person. There is 40 miles of trails at lake Pueblo.
The cost of living can't be beat, I lived in a crappy 600 sq ft condo in Boulder, moved to Pueblo and bought a sweet 100 yr old house- it is twice as big and 1/3 the price.
Also the fact that people turn up their noses to Pueblo helps to keep the snobs out. There is a great cycling community. Come ride with us at Lake Pueblo on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 pm.
