Are you out in Boulder and overwhelmed with choices? Racer Jake Wells talked us through some of his favorite places in Boulder, so if you (or your long-suffering family here to support you) are looking for a spot to go, check out his list of must-sees.

The SRAM Party at Boulder Cycle Sport is a must-attend. Good place to meet and hang with the pros, and it’s a fundraiser for AmyD Foundation.

Good Eats:

Yellow Belly Chicken: Gluten Free fried chicken. Need I say more???

Pizzeria Locale: Fantastic Pizza, and definitely try the risotto-saffron-mozzarella-balls!

Shine: Amazing organic/natural food and great atmosphere, plus homemade spirits. Try the probiotic slaw sampler!

Cured: Cured meats and cheeses and wines

Leaf: Great vegetarian restaurant


Go Drinking:

Avery Brewing Tap Room: It’s a little hard to find but all good things are.

Southern Sun/Mountain Sun: Ask what they have on ‘Nitro’, you’ll be glad you did.

Boulder Beer: Delicious.
