Though it’s called Breck Bike Week, town’s annual celebration of all things pedal is generally a couple days shy of a week. Don’t let the misnomer lower your stoke; Bike Week offers up plenty of action in just five days. We’ve cherry-picked a few of the things we’re most looking forward to, and we encourage you to scour BreckBikeWeek.com to see if you agree with our picks.
2016 Breck Bike Week: June 22-26
Guided campfire ride
The night ride was such a hit in 2015 that this year we’re adding food. Bring lights, the kids and an appetite for campfire food — hot dogs, sides and of course plenty of s’mores. Saturday, June 25
Free bike demos
Check out the latest road and mountain rigs from Trek, Raleigh, and Scott, plus the newest components from SRAM and Shimano. Not sure where to ride? Stop by the Bike Concierge to talk with a local trail expert and find the best short loops close to town. Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26
Yeti Beti women’s mountain bike skills clinics
In addition to the popular beginner women’s skills clinics, Yeti Beti adds intermediate sessions for 2015. These free mountain bike events fill up fast; email Cat Ambrose at email@example.com to reserve a spot. Thursday through Saturday, June 23-25
As part of BreckCreate’s LateNite @ the District, pedal to the Breckenridge Arts District for a free movie screening. The movie will be announced closer to the event at BreckCreate.org Wednesday, June 22
Ride the new Wellington Bike Park and Pump Track
Opened last summer, the new facility was constructed by Peter Mills of Elevated Trail Designs and members of the Town Open Space Department’s Trail Crew. The park is designed for all abilities and features a large pump track, a strider track, three flow trails (one beginner and two intermediate) and a skills area featuring “skinnies” and a small rock garden.
