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

My family and I booked a tour with Challenge Unlimited in July 2012 and had a fantastic experience! The staff that handled our reservations and accompanied us down Pikes Peak were superb and friendly. They made us feel safe and regularly checked our bikes and brakes throughout the ride down the mountain, all the while talking to us and creating... More

This was our second time to ride bikes down Pike's Peak and we highly recommend it! This time we took the cog rail up (last time we rode buses up), ate the special doughnuts at the top, and rode bikes down. On the last part of the bike ride we stopped and had lunch.

While researching things to do while in Denver over Labor Day I happened across a YouTube video of this tour and immediately started the booking process. The ride up in the van was a little nerve wracking but once we reached the summit we knew this was going to be an amazing adventure. The guides were friendly and very informative,... More

We were so happy with this trip!!! Everyone is super helpful and kind. We weren't rushed at all, and I trailed behind the whole time! The ride is a little harder than I expected, there are 3 hills! But on the last one, we just jumped in the van and our bikes were thrown on top and we were able... More

We took the cog up and bike down tour. We arrived to a well put on breakfast and friendly staff. After loading up the van there was a short drive to the cog station. There was a bit of a wait for the train but that's ok as it's mountain time. The conductor on the train was very enthusiastic but... More

My husband, son (17) and I took the cog railway to the summit of Pike's Peak and rode down with Harvey in the lead and Julie providing van support. The ride was absolutely amazing. The guides encourage going at your own pace and make several stops to catch your breath and take pictures. Gear is provided if needed (pants, jackets,... More
