Q: I plan to ride my road bike on the trail from Baptist Road to the trailhead at Costco so that I can make it up to UCCS. Can I get away with my road tires or should I go with some light treads? I would like to avoid some cyclocross tires if possible. -jpromee
A: Most of the trail is fairly smooth, but some sections may be a bit too rough for straight road tires as none of it is paved.
