Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours
This mountain bike tour company is different in that it requires very little uphill climbing. Vehicles transport you to the top of your tour's starting point so all you do is glide downhill. Tours vary in length and ability. The self-guided Easy Rider Tour is perfect for families and allows you to ride at your own pace. Advanced riders love the Single Track Mania Tour which features 25 miles of guided single track riding. All tours use state-of-the-art Kona bikes.
made an appointment a month in advance to do 'Singletrack Mania', drive all the way out there only to find that he's not going to run that ride, cause I was the only one who signed up. This was back in 2002. Would have been nice to get a phone call, before I drove 10 HRS!!!
It was the summer of 2002, I was mainly disappointed with their communication. It was a dry summer with all sorts of wildfires, and forest closings. I made my reservation for Single Track Mania well in advance of my vacation. I was led to believe that everything was a go. I get all the way out there only to find out that I will NOT get to ride Single Track Mania, because no one else signed up that day. I received NO phone call, nothing. Bad customer service. Needless to say I was hugely dissapointed. AT LEAST PICK UP THE PHONE AND LET ME KNOW ITS CANCELLED!!! Also I think the website/company-name leads you to believe that these tours will be ridden down Pikes Peak. At least in 2002, they were not. However, on the previous day I had ridden their downhill ride, where they drive you up in vans, and your group rides down a mountainside on gravel roads. Boring for me, and not very fun for my beginner-rider companions. Downhill on very gravelly roads that made for very poor traction, in some places the gravel is very deep. The scenery was decent, though. oh well, and so it goes.
We have done executive and staff tours with this outfitter for 7 years in a row. Of all their tours we definitely liked the single track and twenty mile high the best. This outfitter has always been of the highest caliber in attention to detail and customer service. These guys are fantastic - The Pikes Peak Tour was also fabulous!
