Things to know

  • 57hours is committed to providing safe outdoor adventure experiences. We require all guides using our platform to have a COVID-19 safety plan and to make the details of that plan accessible to travelers. In most cases, group sizes will be reduced, guides will avoid overcrowded locations, and other safety measures will be met depending on the location and activity.

    We also expect clients to respect local regulations and take measures to protect themselves, guides and the communities they’re travelling to. For more information on COVID-19 measures in Aspen, please refer to the Pitkin County and Colorado State websites.

    Please contact us if you have any questions or require further information. We are happy to provide you with the most up-to-date information!

  • This is what you get on this adventure:

    • An experienced, local MTB guide with extensive knowledge of the area
    • Full-suspension mountain bike
    • Helmet and handlebar bag
    • Transportation to and from all major hotels
    • Lunch for full-day trip; snacks and drinks for half-day trip
  • You will need to be able to bike between four and eight hours, depending on the itinerary you choose. After booking, your guide will determine the group’s skill level and capabilities and cater the day to your specific abilities. Keep in mind, opting for the full day option means more biking, which is strenuous even if you stay on beginner-level trails.

  • As long as you pedal on two wheels, you can book this adventure. A guide will explain the different mountain bike techniques and body positions to get you feeling comfortable on the trial. You will progress at a level that is consistent with your comfort. Once you finally get the hang of trail riding, you will only want more!

    • Wear comfortable riding or athletic clothing, preferably moisture-wicking or synthetic material
    • A rain jacket or shell in case of bad weather (weather can change fast in Colorado!)
    • Sneakers or sport shoes
    • Breathable outside layer or jacket
    • Sunglasses
    • Plenty of water, water bottle or hydration bladder
    • Daypack with snacks
    • Biking gloves are optional but recommended
    • Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, toilet paper, etc.)
  • One of the reasons why mountain biking is so popular is the rush of adrenaline it sends through your veins. Sure, danger is part of the appeal, but you’ll want to avoid any unnecessary risks by hiring a guide. They’ll make sure you enjoy the ride and feel safe while doing it. There is no road map or GPS technology out there that’s as good as having an experienced local guide to lead the way while mastering unfamiliar trails. There’s always more to see, and your guides know just where to go to find it!

  • With us, it’s all play and no work for you! 57hours is an open platform that connects you with trained and certified outdoor adventure professionals all over the world. Using our tech-savvy, we make it super easy to find and book adventures worth tackling, with guides worth booking, all gathered from the first-hand experiences of the locals who adventure in these amazing locations.

  • Only small group adventures are run to ensure that everyone has the best experience possible and doesn’t get lost in the crowd. The price listed for the Half Day Private Tour and the Full Day Private Tour is based on a group size of three riders. Additional riders can be added on for a cost of $300 per rider.

    If you want to book a large group tour, please contact us to make arrangements.

  • The minimum age to book this mountain biking adventure is 13. Children under the age of 13 can join on a case-by-case basis provided that they have the basic biking skills required. If your party has anyone under the age of 13, contact us prior to booking to make arrangements.

  • Tours are scheduled to fit with the seasons and ideal cycling conditions, but as the saying goes, “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad preparation.” You can expect your guides to be fully prepared for anything, and they’ll know the correct course of action to take if inclement weather gets in the way of mountain biking.

    On the rare occasion of truly bad weather, your guide will present you with suitable alternatives. The most common practice is to move to a location nearby if it exists, or to reschedule your mountain biking tour to a more favorable day.

    If mountain biking is not possible on your scheduled day and no options presented are viable, you will be issued a full refund.

  • We highly recommended that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance. With medical insurance, if you have an accident or medical emergency on or off the mountain, you’ll avoid paying out of pocket for costly expenses. This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more.

    If you need assistance selecting the right insurance for your group, let us know and we will be happy to help!
