Fortunately for me, we vacationed in Breckenridge earlier this month. Our stay overlapped with ‘Breck Bike Week’ as well as ‘Breck Epic’, so there were plenty of cycling-related events going on throughout town concurrent to our stay.
I had four days of riding opportunities, which I took full advantage. An ascent of Hoosier Pass was my first order of business, followed by rides to Vail Pass, Keystone (around Lake Dillon), and Frisco.
I was even able to ride to the Eifel Tower!
Having previously vacationed in Breckenridge in 2005, I was struck by the intensification of automobile traffic and expansion of multi-use paved trails. Being able to cycle around Lake Dillon without having to negotiate traffic came as a pleasant surprise. Furthermore, all paved trails were in excellent shape despite the apparent heavy use by cyclists.
I hope eight more years don’t go by before I can visit again!
