Arrive in Denver, Transfer to Breckenridge

Today we meet at our centrally located accommodations in Breckenridge. We will meet at 2pm for introductions, quick orientation, and then a bike set up party for all renting bikes and assembling their own bikes. You are free to do some warm up riding on your own around town and then dinner together tonight to get better acquainted. Our team will help build up bikes, or if you are renting, get you set up and dialed in on our high performance machines so you have nothing to do in the morning except get ready to ride. Getting to Breckenridge: there are shuttle options from DIA and the city; ask us for recommendations. (note the trip finishes in Grand Junction and round trip in and out of Grand Junction is an option with transport from Grand Junction.)

Vail to Glenwood Springs

Today's ride is mostly a gradual downhill and combines highway with bike path as we cover just over 60 miles to Glenwood along the Colorado River corridor. Mostly a quiet route with the nearby interstate taking most of the traffic we will stop for a picnic and enjoy the canyons and views. In Glenwood, you must take some time to visit the famous hot springs! Dinner on your own.

Glenwood to Snowmass

No need to rush out early today, but by late morning we will begin the next segment that has us finishing in the town of Snowmass Village. The route will pass around Carbondale via Missouri Heights and to Woody Creek before turning up the hill to Snowmass Village. Enjoy the pool and dinner out in town. Here in the summer are many free summer concerts on the slopes and people hang out and listen to music as long days fade into cool evenings.

Snowmass Aspen Loop

The last ride day is one of the most scenic as the ride includes the trip up to the Maroon Bells base where the road ends. This road is closed to vehicle traffic during most of the summer months but cyclists can use the road and we will let you go and return on your own. Take lots of pictures at this point as it is one of the most photographed sites in all of North America. On the return we add more miles on quiet roads and then we will visit Woody Creek again, perhaps with a stop at the Tavern before we close out a great trip! Overnight in Snowmass again, dinner on your own.
