Big mountains at high altitude this trip traverses some of the best terrain in the American Rockies taking in the best six lift accessed mountain bike parks in USA.

Most of the riding in Colorado is above 8,000 feet ( 2,300 metres) as a result of that this tour is mainly lift accessed mountain bike trails. We can customise this if you want to use this trip to get unbelievably fit as there are a load of cross country trails in Colorado too.

We start the trip enjoying the fine food and microbreweries of Denver using our time here to aclimatise and explore the local mountain bike scene. We then take in 6 different resorts on the way through the Rockies.
