Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrive in Breckenridge

Nestled high in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge is home to world-class fun and rich, colorful history. Located at 9600’, Breckenridge is the oldest and largest town in Summit County, Colorado. The Pikes Peak Gold Rush brought miners and gold diggers to the area. Gold was discovered in 1859 along the Blue River and a base camp, now known as Breckenridge, was established. Tonight, meet your local representative at your hotel for your private welcome orientation, bike fitting, and route overview.
Lodging: Beaver Run Resort

Day 2 – Summit Loop – 18mi – 41mi (29km – 66km)

Numerous cycling options kick-start your Breckenridge & Vail self-guided cycling vacation. Cruise around the pristine shorelines of Lake Dillon, surrounded by the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains. Or, cycle from Breckenridge to Keystone over Swan Mountain Road. Paved bike paths and spectacular scenery make this a cyclist’s dream. Your local representative will review each cycling option during your welcome orientation.

Days 3 – Breckenridge to Vail – 38mi (61km)

Prepare for an outstanding ride experience as you cycle along the only Colorado mountain pass with a paved bike path the entire distance. This spectacular ride will take you along the path from Breckenridge to Frisco and through Ten Mile Canyon, through wooded areas and past beaver ponds to the ski resort of Copper Mountain. From Copper Mountain, you’ll gently climb your way through high alpine valleys and tundra to the top of Vail Pass. Make sure your camera is handy, as you will want to photograph outstanding views from the summit. It’s an exhilarating downhill ride from the top of the pass to your hotel in Vail.
