You will be accommodated at an authentically restored 1889 mining town hotel, Elk Glade Outfitters. It is a comfortable, simple accommodation heated by wood stove and hauled-in water. There is also a luxury camping with beds, a fireplace, and kitchen. Ready to turn in? Relax in one of the rooms of the restored turn-of-the-century mining camp hotel. Cozy and rustic, the home contains five bedrooms, a parlor with a player piano, large dining room, excellent wood-fired heat, bath and shower on each floor, extra long beds, and a front porch overlooking a trout stream and pond and occasionally, grazing elk.

Program

Upon arrival at the shop, you will be outfitted with all necessary biking gear. Once all participants are ready, you will head out in your mountain van and embark upon your adventure. The fun begins within minutes of getting in the van. As you head up Old Stage road, you will be treated to breathtaking views as your eyes and heart explore the inner beauty of Colorado. As you reach the drop-off destination, you will take a moment to get acquainted with the bikes and then Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours will lead you on bikes to the ranch, following a spectacular nine-mile, easy-grade route through canyon and mountain forests.

Once you arrive, Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours is sure you are going to be hungry and probably thirsty too; let Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours whip something up for you and get you an ice cold drink as you relax on the wraparound porch of the 1880s two-story mining hotel. After you get settled, did you want to get a campfire going? How about a horseback ride through the mountain streams? If exploring the mountain on foot is more your speed, then head on out and take in the thousands of unspoiled acreage on foot. Or perhaps you want to cap it off with a vintage military Jeep tour of the rustic outback?

Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours also offers hiking, night time activities, and then more biking of course if you want. If you are someone that just wants to be alone, Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours has that, too. They can set you up with a tent deep in the Colorado wilderness. If you are looking for a bit more comfort in your accommodations beyond the bunk rooms in the main house, check out some of the private cabins that are available for larger groups. Best off all, no matter your tastes from the mild to the wild and no matter your skill level from the newbie to the pro, Pikes Peak Mountain Bike Tours can accommodate your Colorado dream!
