The logistics of putting together a bike trip from across the state to across the country are not always easy. There’s the bike debate: to rent or to ship? The lodging debate amongst Southwest Colorado’s unique small towns: Telluride or Ridgway or Ouray or Durango? Where to eat, shop, walk, drive and simply rest up before taking on the 215-mile bike route from the high mountain terrain to lower lying red rock country. Acclimating is also a concern especially for those traveling from low elevation or sea level.
Let us help you iron out the details. We have a slew of travel packages to choose from. One of the best choices is staying in our hometown of Ridgway. Ridgway is centrally located between Telluride and Montrose, and as Telluride is in the heart of its very busy festival season during summer, finding lodging, parking and dining are more difficult. Ridgway is also located about 800 feet lower in elevation than Telluride so acclimating is easier here.
We will be working with Chipeta Solar Springs Resort & Spa in the heart of Ridgway for lodging and dining discounts. We’ll also help you with shipping or renting mountain bikes as well as any of your equipment needs. Call us for details! 970.626.3033
