After a little research, ( there are at least two companies that do this sort of thing ), I settled on Challenge Unlimited for my Pike's Peak 'adventure'. It was based on customer reviews and the friendly and fast response to my questions. There's a casual small business feel to the main office and bike barn setup but, make no... More

Knew 3 months prior to the visiting Colorado, I was going to do this ride. Was great fun! Bikes were well maintained and Drew and Ken were knowledgeable of the area, terrain and horticulture. Tiny seamlessly arranged it for my wife and I. We and 3 others rode the cog train up and met the van with other riders and... More

The Bike ride down Pike's Peak was WONDERFUL!!! We went in late September and the weather was perfect and the trees just starting to change. Our guides were great, and they had everything we needed to stay warm at the top and since the van followed us the whole way, we were able to shed clothes at one of stops... More

We had a blast biking down Pike's Peak. Be prepared for all kinds of weather up there, it was 75 down in Colorado Springs and 35 at the peak with strong winds and pockets of mist all the way down. The tour guides follow you in a van with tons of extra layers in case you underestimated the temperature difference.... More

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

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
