Breckenridge & Vail Self-guided Bike

Day 1 – Arrive in Breckenridge

Nestled high in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, Breckenridge is home to world-class fun and rich, colorful history. Located at 9600’, Breckenridge is the oldest and largest town in Summit County, Colorado. The Pikes Peak Gold Rush brought miners and gold diggers to the area. Gold was discovered in 1859 along the Blue River and a base camp, now known as Breckenridge, was established. Tonight, meet your local representative at your hotel for your private welcome orientation, bike fitting, and route overview.
