Challenge Unlimited - Pikes Peak by Bike
Zip down Pikes Peak Highway via bicycle.
We decided you could take leaping right into action with one of the region’s most thrilling attractions, Challenge Unlimited, a 19.5-mile downhill adventure on Pikes Peak—America’s Mountain. Even the trip up the mountain is awesome, because you get to sit back and enjoy the view while they keep their eyes on the winding road! Our big comfy passenger vans will shuttle you and your peeps to the summit while you enjoy the changing biomes and the ever more spectacular views. At the top, you’ll get geared up for the ride down, with bikes, clothes and equipment all included. Then you’ll cruise down the highway in style, checking out the cool landscapes, wild animals and more. And if you have anyone who doesn’t want to ride (crazy, right?), they can ride down in the Challenge Unlimited van and enjoy lunch. Speaking of lunch
Local’s Tip: Military personnel and first responders get a discount. Be sure to bring valid identification to show your area of service (Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, Retired, Police, Fire, EMS).

You may have been riding downhill, but that still takes work. Challenge Unlimited includes lunch at Wines of Colorado, which has a tasting room and a buffalo burger that’s lean and mean and bursting with rich flavors.
Take it Easy in Old Colorado City
Unwind from the excitement for a bit.
You’ve got more to do in the days ahead, so we suggest you take the rest of the afternoon off for a little chill time. Stroll through Old Colorado City and check out the shops and bars. We suggest a scoop at Colorado City Creamery, but don’t spoil your appetite for dinner.Explore More
This Irish-influenced pub is dark and cozy on the inside with a huge patio in the back. There are some amazing soups, including a duck confit with wontons. You also really can’t beat the fish and chips, especially if you pair it with your favorite dark beer.
