Join the thousands of visitors who have experienced the ultimate ride with Challenge Unlimited. Your 19.5-mile downhill adventure from the summit of the world's most famous mountain...Pikes Peak, will stay in your memories long after your vacation is over. The trip begins at Challenge Unlimited's office at 204 S. 24th Street where you will join us for complementary continental breakfast, waiver signing, and fun.
We will depart in our 15-passenger vans and head for the Cog Railway train station. Once aboard, you will experience some of the best views of Pikes Peak from the Southern face. The train ride takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes. You will meet the guides on the 14,115' summit and get set up with clothes, equipment, and bikes.
Off we go...
As we descend down the mountain, we will pass through five different life zones, each zone having a different climate, different vegetation, and wildlife. Keep your eyes open for eagles, deer, elk, Rocky Mountain big horn sheep, black bears, marmots, and an occasional mountain lion.
The ride will finish at the shop and you will have a designated flight time with Pikes Peak Zipline in
Manitou Springs, CO.
Keep in mind, it is cold up there year-round. We bring all the extra cold weather gear you might need, but feel free to bring anything else that will make you cozy at the top!

* If any members of your group would like to have breakfast and the Cog ride up but don’t want to do the bike ride down, they are welcome to ride down in the Support Van. These vans will be with the bikers at all times and at all the stops. Feel free to get out of the vans at the regroup points to enjoy the vistas and guide stories of Pikes Peak. The lower $70 cost also includes a wonderful lunch at the Wines of Colorado.
