Custom, yet classic Colorado cycling. Enjoy a private cycling tour for yourself and a group of your friends. We have put together a number of Colorado rides for those who have only a few days. These tours are designed for groups of 4 to 6 riders with similiar interests and skill levels. We require a minimum number of 4 participants to register

All of these tours are located in the Front Range and High Country of the Colorado Rockies, between Denver and Glenwood Springs. On Thursday afternoon, we will pick you up at Denver International Airport, then transport to our starting town of Golden, Breckenridge or Vail. On each of these tours, we spend two evenings at our starting hotel and one night each on Saturday and Sunday evenings at destination towns.

Option 1-This tour starting in Golden, CO is perfect for those who are traveling from areas which have elevations not much higher than sea level or midwestern plains states. We classify these rides for the ACTIVE or RECREATIONAL cyclists who want to challenge themself. We keep you at elevations of 5500' to 7000' for the first two days. Then, we begin to give you some hill climbing to levels of 8000-9000' feet in the areas of Evergreen, Georgetown, Nederland and other small towns along "The Front Range"

Option 2-This Breckenridge based tour is selected for those who have your mountain breathing and cycling legs established. We start at 8000' elevations, do some riding through the valleys of the ski resorts and around beautiful blue, Colorado lakes. Included are days of climbing Loveland, Hoosier, and Ute Passes. No fears, there is always the support vehicle there for you, so you can choose a "bump" up whenever you feel the need. We spend all evenings in and around Summit County, Colorado. This area has many options for non-cycling adventures for your spouse or companion, including hiking, kayaking, fishing, shopping, and relaxing.

Option 3- Our Vail based cycling tours are similiar to the Breckenridge tours, in that we have plenty of climbing opportunities. Whether it be Vail, Tennesee, McClure, Freemont or Independence Pass, this 4 days of cycling will give you a taste of the most spectacular high country riding. We can include a beautiful hike in and around Maroon Bells, near Aspen, or the spectacular back roads and bike routes near Glenwood Canyon and the Colorado River.

Option 4- Easy Cycling and Hiking options on Colorados Western Slopes. Enjoy 2 nights at the Wine Country Inn and 2 in downtown Grand Junction. We experience the orchards and vineyards of Palisade. We cycle over the Colorado National Monument, The Grand Mesa and a day of either hiking the Monument or rafting the Colorado River with a local guide.

Whatever your choice may be, just remenber your tour is all inclusive. We will take care of all accommodations and meals. We do all of the routes and cue sheets for you. We get you to and from your starting point of Denver or our starting hotel. We support you on the entire journey.
