    That’s great news! Still holding out for the bit just north of me, through Arapahoe County.

    is the path paved with smooth pavement or do they use the concrete sidewalk slabs that are along the rest of the route?

    Denver Parks & Rec says: “The trail is constructed with 10-foot wide by 6-inch deep concrete. It was with a “slip formed” which means that it was poured in long continuous runs with a large slip form machine. Contraction joints were saw-cut into the concrete every 10 feet.” Happy Riding!

    Will BikeDenver be there? I’m planning on attending. A Saturday morning ride down Cherry Creek sounds lovely.

    In the name of “progress” the city and the “Lance Armstrong wannabees” destroyed a pristine dirt trail that was untouched since the 1930′s. Residents adjacent already had to endure 1 year of sewer construction, followed by 7 months of paving, while being bullied by disrespectful DJ Construction Co. and their arrogant goons. No consideration was given to the property owners. Shame on all these idiots!

    That is true- Mother Nature took another whack so the yuppies could have more convenience. Alot of these cyclists go way too fast, yell at the slower cyclists and have no respect for anyone else on the trail. Hopefully there will be no violence as locals get fed up. The locals who suffered thru this have had enough, from the noise, constant dust clouds, fertilizer being sprayed directly into Cherry Creek, temp. fences strangling what used to be a great natural playground for kids and dogs. Now we have to put up with loud talking, Robin Hood in tights types who think they’re in the Tour de France- ugghhh.

  7. Robin Hood says:

    @Steve-I am sure that the “yuppy loud talking men in tights” are not as loud as your little gremlins and barking dogs. Why don’t you get off your couch don some tights and join in one of the amazing activites this great state has to offer. Thank you Denver! Ride Hard!

    Just took my first ride on the new stretch. Thanks Denver!

    As a resident of the neighborhood immediately south of the trail extension, I’m loving it. I can’t count the number of times I’ve almost been clipped by someone blowing a light at Holly and Cherry Creek Drive. And I _ALWAYS_ wait for the cross walk light.

    Neighbors, don’t be NIMBYs. There is nothing so constant as change.
