Colorado’s glorious Rocky Mountains are not the exclusive playground of the avid cyclist...

Especially since we have custom tailored an outdoor adventure with carefully selected routes that take advantage of down hills, valley floors, rail-to-trail recreational paths, and bike paths. You share all the inimitable beauty of the American West without having to pound the pedals on long climbs. Of course, the climbs are there if you crave them—along with brilliant skies, bracingly clean air, awe-inspiring mountain vistas, and fabulous boutique lodgings in Aspen, Vail, and Glenwood Springs that will pamper you perfectly after your day’s scenic encounters. Here is an exhilarating road-biking vacation that celebrates the best of the West in grand style.

What To Expect

VBT has hand-selected routes that take advantage of down hills, valley floors, rail-to-trail recreational paths, and bike paths. This tour offers the easiest possible riding within a high mountain environment. About 70% of the riding is on either flat or downhill routes. All ride surfaces are paved. Rides take place at altitudes between 10,600 feet and 5,800 feet. For those accustomed to riding at sea level, the elevation will provide an added challenge. This tour is ideal for those that cycle on a regular basis. Our VBT van support shuttle is always available for those who need assistance with the hills.
