Vail Pass Bike Tours Elite Downhill - Intense M16C Expert Build The M16 is a world-class, downhill racing machine, at 9.5 inches of rear travel with a carbon chassis, geometry developed in conjunction with Intense Factory Racing Team riders Bernat Guardia, Jack Moir, Luca Cometti and Ferran Jorba. Intense was the pioneer of downhill racing bikes – and the M16 is the new standard. Downhill - Scott Voltage FR 720 The Voltage FR 720 is your key to bikeparks, downhill tracks and any trail that deserves a good ol' roostin'. It has been designed around a 27.5'' wheel so that no matter the terrain or style you are riding, you have the right tool for the job. Thanks to a low BB, a slack head angle, short chain stays and a low leverage ratio, this bike will surely put a grin on your face. Coast 17 miles through the valley and end up at our front door. Our most popular tour! Enjoy a leisurely unguided ride from the top of Vail Pass (elevation 11,300ft) back down to our shop in Lionshead (8,400ft). We'll fit you with your bike and helmet in the shop, load you up in our 14-passenger van, and our driver will tell you all about the tour as he transports you to the top of the pass. From there, you're set free! Just follow the newly-paved bike path all the way back to town, and experience amazing views, fresh mountain air and maybe even some native wildlife along the way. Fun for all ages! On average, Vail Pass tours take between an hour and a half and three hours from then the van leaves to when riders return to the shop (but there is no time limit!). We recommend you bring water, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a light jacket. Riders should have a basic understanding of hand brakes and gears. (We're happy to give you a refresher) $45 per person. $35 with advanced reservation. $25 with own bike. Includes bike, helmet, and shuttle ride. Tours leave twice a day, at 11am and 1:30pm. We ask that you arrive at the shop to get set up at least 30 minutes before the tour leaves. A minimum of two riders is required to run a tour. Maximum fourteen riders. Glenwood Canyon Cruise 16 miles down a path tucked between towering canyon walls A staple of Colorado biking, this classic unguided tour runs alongside the rapids of the Colorado River. Cool and shaded in some parts, sunny and open others, this paved bike path is relatively flat, but definitely memorable. We'll fit you with your bike and helmet in the shop, load you up in our 14-passenger van, and our driver will tell you all about the tour as he transports you to the dropoff point. From there, you're free to casually pedal your way through the canyon, where you're likely to see breathtaking geological formations, wildlife, and possibly some kayakers charging through the rapids. As you near the hot springs, our driver will meet you at the pickup spot, ready to load up the bikes and bring you back to Vail. On average, the canyon tour takes between four and five hours from dropoff to pickup, but you're encouraged to go at your own pace. We recommend you bring water, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a light jacket. Riders should have a basic understanding of hand brakes and gears. (We're happy to give you a refresher) $80 per person, advanced reservation required. $65 with own bike. Price includes bike, helmet, and shuttle ride. Glenwood Canyon tours leave the shop at 10am and go by special request only. We ask that you arrive at the shop to get set up at least 30 minutes before the tour leaves.
