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

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

We took the cog railroad up, and biked down Pikes Peak. It was very foggy, so we didn't get to start until we were down 11, 400 feet ( Glen Cove). It was great. We had a great lunch afterwards. Highly recommend to anyone who can ride a bike.

Some of my kids would give this a five star rating, some would give this a 1 star rating. If you are an adrenaline junky and at least somewhat fit this is for you. If you are not I would suggest you don't do this. We rode the Cog up to the peak and it was a nice trip. Really... More

this was a father's day gift, we booked through groupon, everyone was so nice from the first phone call through the drop off, we couldn't have been happier with the crew. We started with a continental breakfast while everyone was arriving, rode up in a large van, had time at the top, and were given a safety check on brakes,... More

Great time! Seriously, when you combing taking the Cog to the top and then biking down, it's a true Colorado experience! The bikes are brand new, the guides are very helpful and they even provide all the clean clothes you would need to keep you warm at the top of the mountain. Heck, they even provide you with lunch at... More
