breck bike3Spend 7 days in the saddle exploring Colorado on this amazing 440 mile loop. The awesome thing about this ride is that there is someone there to take care of every last detail of your trip. During your ride there are aid stations every 20 to 30 miles with beverages and snacks. There are medics, mechanics, and a “sag wagon” to get you to the campsite if you can’t quite finish the day’s ride. You can pre-order all of your meals, all of your gear will be transported for you, and you can even have someone set up and tear down your camp! This enables you to sit back, enjoy the ride, and soak in the amazing views!

This amazing tour crosses the continental divide four times, goes over 7 different scenic Colorado mountain passes, and through 6 amazing mountain towns! Don’t forget your camera, because this is one for the books!

Your journey will begin in the beautiful town of Breckenridge. From there you will travel around the Ten

Mile Range, over Fremont Pass, and into Leadville on the first 60 mile leg of this amazing journey! Get ready for some climbing on the second day over the infamous Independence Pass! The views cannot be beat on this 88 mile stretch from Leadville to Carbondale. Cool things down a little bit the following day with less mileage and climbing on the ride from Carbondale to Hotchkiss. From Hotchkiss it is a pretty steep 54 mile ride to Crested Butte, but once you get there you can take the next day to recover before continuing this monster ride.

The fifth day is a rest day spent in Crested Butte, before pushing on to the final two days of the ride. Get your legs ready in Crested Butte for the 96 Mile trek to Salida the following day. Gear up in Salida for the final 78 mile push back to Breckenridge. You can sleep that final night with a grin on your face knowing that you just completed a ride that many out there can only dream of!
