Fort Collins is a great place to take a layover day. It’s a college town (Colorado State University), it’s a platinum rated bike-friendly city, and it has over a dozen bike shops. Before leaving town, be sure to carry a good supply of groceries for the next two days’ ride up the Poudre River canyon and over the Continental Divide. There are only a couple of convenience stores between Fort Collins and Walden, CO.
