With incredible mountain biking, road biking, and miles of spacious bike paths ideal for cruising on one of the perfect summer days we're known for, there's no better place to get outside on two wheels than Aspen Snowmass.

In fact, in 2020, the entire Roaring Fork Valley was deemed a Gold-Level Ride Center by the International Mountain Bike Association, which honors the world's best destinations for mountain bikers of all levels. Get your adrenaline pumping on some on-mountain downhill trails at Snowmass Bike Park or just cruise around our picturesque valley and enjoy the sights. You can't go wrong here.

Let's start with the basics. What type of biking are you interested in doing?

Downhill Mountain Biking

If you are here to explore the Snowmass Bike Park, a downhill bike sounds like the right fit for you. Downhill bikes are built for stability at speeds and confidence in steep and rocky terrain. A Downhill Bike Rental is your best bet to enjoy your day in the Snowmass Bike Park safely and confidently. All Downhill Bike Rentals include helmet and pad rental.

Mountain Biking

If you're planning to explore the many cross-country mountain bike trails in the area, a mountain bike is probably the right bike for you. Lighter than downhill bikes, mountain bikes will save you some extra work while you're climbing uphill between downhill sections, allowing you to get more out of your day and your legs! Mountain bikes are not intended for use in Snowmass Bike Park and pads are NOT included. If you're planning a day at the bike park, you may be looking for a Downhill Bike Rental instead.

Cruiser Biking

Cruiser bikes are a great way to get outside and explore Aspen if you plan to stay on paved roads and pathways. If your idea of a good time is taking a ride through the streets of Aspen and along the Rio Grande Trail on a sunny day, stopping for a beverage at your new favorite brewery, and exploring the Aspen Farmers Market, a cruiser bike is a great fit for you.
