Summit County and the Vail Valley is a bicyclist's paradise with close to 200 miles
of paved bike paths and 400
miles of back-country roads and trails. All of this located in a stunning mountain setting,
create ideal conditions for two-weeled touring. The richly varied topography of the region
presents both novice and advanced mountain bikers with many choices: following historic
byways past aging mining camps, retracing abandoned routes of railroads that once
passed through the County and exploring the many high alpine roads and trails
criscrossing innumerable sky piercing peaks.
The main attraction to bikers is unquestionably
the vast network of paved bike paths winding through and between each of the
towns and resort in the area. You can literately ride the bike path from Breckenridge
to Vail or any of the other towns. These paved trails feature trailhead parking,
directional signage, and rest stops. The variety of terrain and difficulty levels
from an infant preferring to watch the world from the comfort of a child trailer to a
hill climbing enthusiast.
Bikers of all abilities can choose
from an array of riding options ranging from an easy cruise along Lake Dillon's paved
bike trail to a challenging ride to the top of Vail pass. You may want to skip the ride
up the pass and ride down instead by arranging to be dropped off at the top of the pass.
You could choose to ride to the West down to Vail or to the east down to Frisco.
Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon, Copper Mountain, Vail, Avon, Silverthorne, Keystone are
all ideal starting points for bike rides, and each boasts of local
favorites that can lead pedalers
onto full-day explorations or simply a brief afternoon cruise. Each town contains
several top-notch bike shops featuring rentals for the entire family, as well as repair
services, books, maps and a wide range of cycling accessories and an intimate
knowledge of where to ride.
