There are incredible trails going up...and down!
Tucked in the foothills of the Rocky Mountain’s Tenmile Range, is Breckenridge, a small town of approximately 5,000 residents with big mountain biking trails and terrain, all at an elevation of 9,600′ — it is also a Gold Level Bicycle Friendly Community, awarded by the League of American Bicyclists. Mountain biking and cycling are a huge part of Breck’s backbone. The town’s incredible network of trails all boast easy access and that will take you up and down Colorado’s famed terrain: alpine singletrack, loamy forest trails, and fields of wildflowers as far as the eye can see.
