Biking in Summit County
Summit County has an extensive paved bike path that extends from Copper Mountain to Breckenridge to Keystone. This is ideal for road bike riding especially in the shoulder seasons, when traffic on the path is sparse. At anytime, however, bikers may encounter pedestrians and slower moving bikes. Summer is busy, but solitude can be found in off times of day (early morning or late evening). From Breckenridge, for example, you can ride down to Frisco, then slightly uphill to Copper Mountain - getting in more that 20 miles one way - and then continue to Vail another 25 miles to the west. Vail Pass is steep up and steep down westbound. Copper to Frisco is downhill, but then surprisingly uphill back to Breckenridge and often into a headwind. A locals' favorite is the Lake Dillon Loop.

Mountain Bike Guides
Breckenridge is a stellar mountain bike destination - named one of the best biking towns in America, it allows and expects bicycles on nearly every trail around it. Mountain bikes take a beating on the trails and so the town has plenty of shops where you can rent a state-of-the-art bike or also repair and maintain yours.
Getting a really fat set of wheels can make snow biking comfortable. Extra Fat tire bikes can be rented locally and several trails are groomed and perfect for these.
No matter where you choose to live in Summit County, you'll will find easy access to the mountains. Give us call at (970) 453-2200 or Contact Breckenridge Associates online.
