Breckenridge Bike Week - Summer Family Activity

Breckenridge has more to offer for outdoor adventurers than just skiing. As soon as the snow melts and the mud dries, it is time to bike! There are amazing trails all over Summit County perfect for mountain bikers ranging in skill level from beginner to advanced. Road biking on miles of paved trails is another way to enjoy the stunning scenery throughout Summit County. Breck Bike Week offers the ideal opportunity to learn more about biking, bike trails, trail etiquette and all the latest equipment, as well as celebrate the sport with friends.
