Breck Demo Days - Cruise by the Gondola North Parking lot and discover the bike expo, outfitted with free demo bikes ranging from Mountain to Road to Electric...boodie woogie woogie. Come see what's new from top cycling manufacturers such as Trek, Shimano, and more to see the latest and greatest in bikes and components. While the cycling world may never agree what wheel size is the best (26", 27.5", 29", 600c), all bike enthusiasts know the coolest bikes ride on twelves. That's right, and we'll have them there at the Expo if you haven't seen them. Strider bikes are all the rage and you will become a believer after just one lap around the StriderStrider Adventure Zone.
