Where to Ride

Click on the Trail Info tab for details on the numerous mountain bike trails in the Salida area.

The unique setting of the Salida area in the Arkansas Valley region surrounded by 14,000 foot mountains provides some of the best bike trails on the continent. Bike paths cross the valley in, around and through the mountain town of Salida.  Our area features paths for every level of rider.

The town of Salida features many charming, historical homes, and more than 300 days of sunshine every year.  This makes it an ideal place to cruise the streets by bike.  Visitors to Salida enjoy riding past the restored bungalows and Victorian homes in town, and have their pick of cafes, breweries and restaurants to stop at.

Trail Info


Q Can I pick up my bike the night before?

In the busy Summer months this is extremely hard to do. If you have an early Monarch Crest Shuttle (not ours) you really should book the bike for the day before to ensure you get it. If your bike is available and ready we have no problem letting you pick it up after 5 pm. This is a gamble. If you have an 8AM Saturday Monarch Crest shuttle with us get here at 7:30 AM and we will have your bike ready.

Q Are bike rentals by the hour or by the day?

By the Day. Rental prices are for when the bike is picked up until 30 min before close that day.

Q What is your cancellation policy?

Please give us 48 hours notice. If you fail to do so, we will bill your card for the first day of the reservation for each bike that we could have rented otherwise.

Q Do you have a way to put the bike on my car?

We offer Thule T2 hitch rack (2" hitch, 2 or 4 bikes) and tailgate pads for rent. Be very careful transporting bikes as you are responsible for damages.

Q Where can I ride?

We'll show you on a map, or check out the Trail Info tab.

Q Is a helmet provided?

Helmets are included, as well as a basic tool kit - pump, patch kit, multi-tool, spare tube
