Colorado Vintage Mountain Bike Ride 2014

Vintage Mountain Bike Ride 2014-1

This past Labor Day Weekend marked the 2nd Annual Colorado Summer Vintage Mountain Bike Ride. We had a great turnout with over 20 diverse bikes and riders. It was great to see everyone’s vintage rides out of the garage and on the trail!

This year’s course pushed the outdated geometry, rigid frames, and coaster brakes through 7 miles of scenic Rocky Mountain trails through the Betasso Preserve.

We want to thank everyone who came out to enjoy the day with us! It was a huge success and we look forward to riding with you again next year!
