CO, one month, camping, cragging, bike to town?

Hey all,

Where would you but down base?

Ideal logistics.
Cool, free camping, trees and river preferrable.
Good cragging in walking distance.
Good cragging in bike range, 6 miles or so.
Town for supplies within 10 miles.

Somewhere by the Buena Vista crags?
Turkey Rocks?
Taylor Canyon near Gunny?

Up to easy 11's? coming from downtime in TX. Cracks preferred over sport, but camping by a sport crag would be sick too. Plus for 14'ers in stricking distance via bike. Big van to park, so car camping.

If Lumpy was just outside Ned that'd be sick.

11-mile canyon might fit the bill except for the free camping part. There is free camping around Independence Pass, but it's a little ways from much in the way of climbing (other than some single pitch.)
