by North Metro Woman

As we approach Father’s Day, which is June 18th this year, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re doing for that special “dad” in your life.

We have no doubt, some of you meticulous planners have it all tightened up, but if you are more of a fly-by-the-seat of your pants kinda gal,  here are some fun ideas to check out now!

If your guy is into fishing, there are plenty of lakes and resources on where to find them near and dear to the North Metro area.   You can also purchase all the fishing gear they might need at any of the JAX, REI’s and Cabelas in the North Metro area.

But here’s a little inside tip for the hunting or sporting enthusiast,  Barr Lake in Brighton (off  Interstate 76 and  Highway 7) not only offers a fishing pier, boating and lake fishing, they also offer an archery range!

At Barr, they have 12 shooting lanes with heavy duty targets and a 3D target course.  There are also 8.8 miles of multilevel biking trails, picnic and camping areas, a nature center, and incredible wildlife viewing.  For you bird watchers, bald eagles are often seen nesting nearby.  There’s really something for dad and everyone here.  Check it out!

The Rockies are away in Atlanta this Father’s Day, but that shouldn’t stop your man from getting his baseball fix.

Gap2Gap in Westminster is a new baseball and softball facility designed to elevate your playing skills, and they offer

You can use tokens to rent the batting machines, try out the speed gun,  do some fielding, or step out of your comfort zone and get into one of the simulated virtual reality games.

They also offer memberships, batting tournaments and a social room for parties or watching big sporting events with friends.

And on Father’s Day, dads bat free!   There will also be a father/child wiffleball homerun contest at 1pm.  Batter up!

Gift him mountain biking lessons!  If  there is one way to earn your BBQ, this Father’s Day, it’s working up a good appetite on our Colorado trails.

And if he needs a little brushing up on skills, Front Range Ride Guides can teach “dad”  all he needs to know!   This highly rated program is taught by expert instructors in half and full day clinics in Boulder and Fort Collins.  One of the great aspects of this company is they will also totally outfit the rider if you don’t have the gear – everything from fitted bikes for your size, to helmets, gloves, water bottles and even snacks.  They can also take a look at your gear if you need some adjusting.

So whether you’re a seasoned biker with a desire to learn some tips and tricks, or just really need some basic fundamentals, this is a fun way to get your guy out in nature for some two wheel fun.
