My husband and I read about the cog up, bike down ride on the internet while planning our trip to Colorado. Even though I thought it would be fun, I am terrified of heights and questioned being able to actually make the twenty mile ride. Determined to face my fears, we signed up for the ride and I must say... More

Challenge unlimited had a light breakfast at the shop (yogurt, muffins, coffee) which was great. I do not recommend eating a large meal before this trip. We took the COG railroad up the mountain about an hour plus ride great experience if you have not ridden the rail yet. Our trip was in early Sept the weather in Colorado is... More

We went as a family of four - our two kids are 11 and 9 and both are street bikers who usually bike around the neighborhood. Both my husband and I have mountain biked before but that type of experience is really not necessary on this trip. The kids did really well and even passed some adults who were slow... More

This is the best "formal" activity we have ever done as a family here in Colorado. It was challenging enough for my teenagers, yet safe enough for my nine year old. Everyone had lots of fun! Our guides Melissa and Leah were fun, smart, supportive and made us feel very safe. The breakfast and lunch were great, as was the... More

We had a group of 12 ages ranging from 9 to 45. Our guides Lea and Melissa were fabulous! They always made sure they were available to help with any issues. They were friendly and personable. We were always warned ahead of time of the dangers or "challenges" ahead. Safety was their number one concern but they still made sure... More

Challenge unlimited has been one of the best Colorado experiences i have enjoyed for several years. My son and I first took the "Prospector' unguided ride whin he was 10 years old. Fell immediately in love with the experience. Have made the ride every year we visit. It is one of the best visual and healthy experiences we have enjoyed... More

My wife and I decided what the heck. Let's do it. We are both a young 65 and like to challenge ourselves. We took the cog railway to the top of Pikes Peak. Rode down the mountain with out 2 guides Malissa and Lia. Than had lunch at a local restaurant. We had a great time. The views we incredible.... More

Highly recommend the bike ride down from the summit of Pikes Peak. Harvey & Cory were awesome guides!! They gave excellent instructions on the bikes, each section of the ride and what to expect. My husband & I are just occasional riders at home. Had to walk up the last 2 uphill sections, but that was minor compared to the... More

This was the first time my husband and I had visited Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak. I found Challenge Unlimited through tripadvisor and thought "why not"? It was a great experience. The crew is well experienced, have clothes to keep you warm and safety is their number one priority. Whether you are a great biker rider or just "so so"... More

Definitely don't do this if you are afraid of heights. That being said, it was a BLAST! Biking at 14,000 ft can be challenging if you live at 900 ft like we do, but the crew is outstanding and the equipment is the best. Thanks to Challenge Unlimited for a great day. Don't even consider another company for this type... More
