6th Annual Bicycle Festival in Breckenridge, Colorado
Wednesday, August 20 - August 24, 2014
Breck Bike Week: Join Our Community of Cyclists from novice pedalers to pro riders there is something for all levels of bikers!
One of “Breck’s” best kept secrets is its expansive backcountry trail network – an interconnected system that can be accessed from anywhere in town within two minutes and leading to hundreds of miles of riding across Summit County. Recently named a gold-level Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclists, Breckenridge introduces visitors to pedal paradise during the annual Breck Bike Week.
Centered around Colorado’s professional road bike race, the US Pro Challenge, Breck Bike Week will include high-end bike demos, led group rides, trail building, lectures, clinics, free bike tunes, kids’ races and more. The bonus is that most Breck Bike Week activities are FREE and open to everyone. In addition, this week will showcase the town’s history as well as shopping, dining, lodging, other unique activities and temperate summer weather.
Breckenridge is a unique mountain resort in comparison to its neighbors in that it is an authentic historic mining town full of full-time outdoorsy residents who want nothing more than to introduce visitors to the bike paths, trails and roads that make up their backyard bike playground. Breck Bike Week will do just that. In addition, Breck is surrounded by a trail network the width and breadth of which is unsurpassed in North America, a resource the community is very committed to protect and preserve…while still enjoying it to its fullest. While here, cyclists are invited to give back to the trails through trail building workshops. Breck Bike Week is a feast for cyclists of all types and truly communicates the town’s passion for biking.
