Biking

Biking

It's so easy it's like riding a bike!  Seeing the Aspen area via bicycle is quite spectacular and you don't have to be a pro to do so.  Check out one of Aspen's many bike shops and rent a cruiser for a jaunt around town or down the Rio Grande Trail.  If you want to take it up a notch for road biking or mountain biking, we recommend taking lessons from our highly talented and experienced local professionals! It might just be one of the best ways to explore the Maroon Bells area and Castle Creek Valley.  For those who enjoy off-road adrenaline, mountain bikes are also available and the local trails can't be beat. Smuggler Mountain Road is a gateway to multiple loops such as the Hunter Creek Loop, Iowa Shaft, Tootsie Roll and Lollipop. Check out Aspen Trail Finder for tail maps & conditions.

In the central region of the Colorado Rocky Mountains which covers Aspen, Snowmass Village, Basalt, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs and Rifle there are plenty of easy, paved trails for leisure bicycling and walking. All of these trails follow creeks and rivers making for small elevation changes and gorgeous scenery! Plus there are many opportunities to stop along the way. 

Aspen is host to several biking events throughout the summer kicking things off in May with the ever-popular Ride for the Pass which takes cyclists to the top of Independence Pass prior to the road opening for car traffic for the season.  The Aspen Gran Fondo,  an epic 50 mi group ride around the Aspen area followed by  the  USA Pro Challenge.

Aspenites have long pushed the envelope on extreme sports, and biking in the winter is no exception. Fat Biking, which has risen to popularity in ski towns over the past few years has a home in Aspen. Not only with the Fat Cycle Challenge as part of Winterskol weekend but also Aspen Parks & Trails has created a loop that is open during winter months.
