Vail, Colorado is known for its world class skiing, regularly playing host to both professional ski races and happy ski tourists. But the lesser known side of Vail are the excellent high altitude cycling paths. From our hotel base in the town of Vail, our weekend getaway will give you a taste of cycling in the Colorado Rockies. We’ll ride on roads and paths up over Vail Pass, down through Glenwood Canyon to the hot springs pool, and beyond the high altitude town of Leadville.  All the details have been taken care of for you, including bicycle rental. This is a great tour for those who like to climb.

We start cycling on the meandering bike path in Silverthorne,  a community that sits in the middle of nature’s playgrounds: statuesque peaks topping out above 14,000 feet; bold rivers with renowned rapids and fishing holes; and hundreds of miles of wilderness.
