Challenge Unlimited – Pikes Peak by Bike
The ride down Pikes Peak is not difficult. The only restrictions are size and altitude. Participants must be at least 4’8″ tall in order to fit on our bikes and the max weight is 300lbs. This ride is not safe for smaller children. Also, people with any chronic illnesses should not do this ride. Though most of the ride is down hill the majority of our clients are not used to 14, 115 feet and it can effect people with a history of chronic illness. A good alternative to the Pikes Peak ride is the Gold Camp ride. This is a beautiful 17 mile ride down hill, but it starts at 9,200 feet instead of 14,115 feet. Younger children are always welcome to ride in the van that supports the group down the mountain.
We are located at 204 S 24th Street. It is in the west part of Colorado Springs called Old Colorado City. From I25 take exit 141 to Highway 24 West. Go west (towards the mountains) for one mile until you get to 21st street. Turn right and continue (about a block and a half) until you see a building that say “Dons Body Shop”. Right after the sign take your first left on Cucharras. Continue west for three blocks. We are located on the corner of 24th and Cucharras. It is a large warehouse, painted blue with a mural of Pikes Peak on the side. You can’t miss it!
