This was definitely the best thing I did while in Colorado Springs. It was my very first solo vacation and it was life - changing. So many people thought I was out of my mind that I wanted to ride a bike 20 miles down Pikes Peak. Lol. We had all ages in our group of 20. If you are... More

I did this with my fiance, and we had a great time. The guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. We learned some new things and got some great pics. I highly recommend you do this once, even if you are from the area, as we are. It lets you see Pikes Peak in a new way. Just one word of... More

This adventure, by far, was my highlight of my trip out here. I had no problems booking the trip at all. Tini was helpful and explained everything to me. We had a group of 11 for the Cog train and 10 biking down Pikes Peak. Ian and Trevor were our guides and after just talking with them for a few... More

I planned a Bike trip with this company several months before my vacation. I received a call at 4:30 PM the evening before our next morning ride down Pikes Peak and was told that she had to cancel the ride. NOT due to weather. The other group (4) was delayed in getting to CO and would not be there in... More

We did the morning van up/bike down one week ago. We are a family of 2 adults, and 2 boys ages 14 and 11. I was a little apprehensive about the safety, but was quickly assured by another family with young girls about the same ages as my boys who said they have been doing this ride annually for several...

Note, it was 74° Fahrenheit (23° Celcius) in Manitou Springs when we started the Cog Train up on 12 July (Read peak of summer) and 19° Fahrenheit (-7° Celcius) with the wind-chill at the summit of Pikes Peak – SO BRING WARM CLOTHES. It takes time to get the bikes distributed and sized, as well as get everyone situated, so... More

This was the ride of a lifetime! The staff was friendly, and our group leaders (Harvey and Ian) were patient, safety-conscious, and helpful. The bikes were well-maintained and of good quality, with disc brakes. Everything needed was provided: extra clothes for cold temps on top, helmets, gloves, etc. Breakfast and lunch were both very nice. But the ride was MAGNIFICENT....Beautiful... More
