Trip Description

Explore fall colors with this Independence Pass Road Bike Tour. Cover over 80 miles of colors, mountains, alpine tundra, and fall glory in this 4-day road-bike tour on the legendary Highway 82. You can bring your road bike or even bring an e-bike; whatever bicycle you prefer.

We will bike the Highway 82 corridor, lined with shimmering, golden aspen trees, inspiring high altitude mountains, and lush alpine tundra on this guided and supported road-bike tour. Starting at Glenwood Springs and travelling through the Roaring Fork Valley, we will road bike the entire Highway 82, stopping for sightseeing, delicious food, and charming lodging in Basalt, Aspen, and Twin Lakes!

Maddie Miller, our experienced and extremely fun trip leader, is available if you have any questions about ability, endurance or anything! Join us for an unforgettable human-powered journey to celebrate the magic and breathtaking beauty that is Colorado fall foliage.
