What To Expect

This is a beautiful area – expect to see pristine river valleys bookmarked by high peaks, including the most summits over 14,000 feet of any county in the continental United States as you embark on your Colorado mountain bike tour. It is the perfect playground for mountain bikers and road cyclists alike.  In addition to a custom fitted bike and helmet you’ll be getting the expert knowledge of a local guide, who not only knows the area trails very well, but also is well versed in local folklore and natural history.  All of our guides are trained in first aid, CPR, emergency procedures and carry emergency communication equipment at all times.  We provide all of our clients with mountain biking trips that are not only as safe as possible, but fun and educational along the way.  Plus, it’s more fun to ride with a local guide.

Recommended Add-Ons Or Packages

Because of Salida’s central location in the Arkansas River Valley you can combine an afternoon ½ Day Mountain Bike Adventure with any of our morning ½ Day Rafting Adventures.  Our Raft + Mountain Bike Adventure Package is a great way to spend the day exploring all that this amazing river valley has to offer!
