Buena Vista Bike Fest
June 3, 2017Mc Phelemy Park, Buena Vista, CO
Buena Vista Bike Fest celebrates the beauty of the area and wonderful bike trails offered in the area. The century route is the cornerstone of the Buena Vista Bike Fest. Shorter rides of 35, 50 & 60 mile routes are also available. The beautiful century route goes north to Leadville, along the scenic rolling hills of Turquoise Lake Road, around the Mineral Belt Trail passing aspen groves and conifer forests, meandering through the historic Leadville Mining District, and back to Buena Vista in the shadows of Colorado's highest mountain peaks. Nearly all of the climbing is completed over the first 60 miles of the ride, with the last 40 miles essentially downhill to flat! Riders also have options to take shorter routes including a 35 miler, a 50 miler, and a "metric century" (62 miles) while still enjoying the Collegiate Peaks' magnificent scenery.
