Betasso link is a hard climb with very steep grades from the start on usually very dusty and loose rock. Pretty much all but the best are going to hike a bike for a little bit. The top mellow out in grade but still very flowy with some rocks. Down is a blast. Flowy up top and it gets rockier and steeper as you go. Definitely recommend hitting it up if near Boulder.

Access Info

Easy to access. Go into Boulder Canyon about 5 miles and the parking lot is on the right hand side, right before the tunnel. (This is coming from Boulder).
