The place is at the base of the majestic Rockies and filled with good climbers. There are climbs of every kind nearby. Surely you can find something that suits your personal preferences.

One very convient option is Flagstaff, which one can do in repeats.

Magnolia Road, Sugerloaf and Flagstaff(all of it). Mt Evans is an easy but long long climb of 28 miles if you start in Idaho Springs. Bring money for the park entrance at the 14mile mark though.

SuperJames is a good one too. the climb to Pinewood Reservoir (north of Carter Lake) is a short, STEEP climb. A BRUTAL one is to ride up Lefthand Canyon, turn left onto Lickskillet Road, and try to make it up the dirt climb to Gold Hill..

There's plenty of brutal climbing routes up around Fort Collins, too (Rist Canyon).

Lickskillet is steep and dirt but pretty short.

I have been having fun lately climbing from Four Mile to Poorman then up Sunshine Canyon. I did Flagstaff yesterday and its still a classic, especially for those lunch time rides from downtown.
