PLAY Aspen Snowmass Episode 5: Biking

Lift accessed downhill mountain biking across 50 miles of flowing singletrack—look no further than Bike Snowmass, a network of bike trails that offers a mecca of playful wall rides and drops to low-key meandering trails through Aspen groves and fields of wildflowers.

Watch as host Nicole Birkhold drops (with, of course, all the necessary protective gear) into the world of bikes, dirt, berms, and singletrack with Bike Snowmass Ride Pros Megan Hartmann and Tyler Lindsay for a day of learning the ins-and-outs of downhill mountain biking. Megan and Tyler make it easy for Nicole as she goes through her progression of the ABCs—action stance, braking and cornering.

After a thrilling day on the mountain, Nicole heads into Aspen to enjoy the laidback side of the sport—cruiser biking. Hop on and watch as she joins the infamous Tuesday Cruiseday, an event that takes place Tuesday evenings and leads bikers around the town of Aspen to various parks while enjoying the company of fellow bike enthusiasts.

Whether getting after it at Bike Snowmass or cruising around town, Aspen Snowmass is proud to be a bike friendly community.

Ready, set, bike!
