Roundtrip transportation, picnic lunch, all necessary gear, equipment and expert instruction will be provided. Later that day, enjoy well-earned R&R and dinner at your leisure (giving you the opportunity to explore an array of excellent dining choices in nearby historic Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs or at our scenic resort).

Take in the breathtaking views from the top before receiving detailed safety instruction and all necessary gear and equipment for our bike descent. From there, we’ll embark on a gorgeous ride down through five different life zones (each with a very different climate, vegetation and wildlife). Keep your eyes open for a variety of wildlife as we take several scenic stops during our 20 mile journey. We’ll end our ride at a local eatery and winery for a riverside lunch and wine tasting.
