Whether you enjoy mountain biking, road riding, or just cruising on a lazy Sunday afternoon, Steamboat Springs has quickly become the Colorado destination of choice for all things bicycle. With miles of cross country single track, endless scenic county roads, and Steamboat Resort's new bike park and downhill trails on Mt. Werner, there is something for everyone who enjoys the two-wheeled ride.
Steamboat Springs also happens to be home to two high-end custom bike manufacturers, Moots Cycles and Kent Eriksen Cycles, as well as Honey Stinger, an energy food manufacturer partially owned by seven-time Tour-de-France winner Lance Armstrong.
In 2011 the City of Steamboat Springs was designated a Bicycle Friendly Community at the Gold Level by the league of American cyclists. Steamboat Springs is also frequently found on the bicycle tour routes of Ride the Rockies, Bicycle Tour of Colorado, and the Tour of Wyoming.
So, hop on the family-friendly Yampa River Core trail for a relaxing cruise along the river, explore over 500 miles of scenic cross country single track or hit the new Steamboat Bike Park and downhill trails on Mt. Werner. The smooth country roads offer endless rides through the Yampa Valley. How will you Bike the 'Boat?
