Mountain Bikes

Are the mountain bikes hardtail or full suspension, and what's the difference between the two?

Breckenridge Ski & Sport currently offers hardtail mountain bikes for rent.

The difference between the two is a full suspension bike has both front and rear shocks, where as a hardtail does not have a rear shock. There are pros and cons to both, but we’ll focus on the pros of the hardtail. Usually these bikes are lighter weight than a full suspension and make pedaling and climbing hills fast and efficient. These are also great for endurance terrain due to the support provided by the hardtail.

Do the bikes have flat pedals or clip-ins?

The bikes Breckenridge Ski & Sport have for rent are equipped with flat pedals. Be sure to wear mountain biking shoes or shoes with a sturdy base to them for optimal performance on the trails.

What size of tires are on the mountain bikes?

All hardtail mountain bikes have 27.5 tires.

What other gear should we wear aside from a helmet?

That answer really depends on how comfortable you are on a mountain bike.

If it’s your first time out, elbow pads and knee pads wouldn’t hurt to wear. Those would have to be purchased prior to your day of rental. If you aren’t keen on the idea of buying brand new gear for a day on the trails, the best thing you can do is wear long sleeves and longer pants that cover your elbows and knees in case of a wipe out.

Gloves are another item that come in handy when biking. They prevent your palms for slipping off your hand grips and will protect your hands if you fall.

Tall socks are a must as well to protect your ankles from any brush you may cruise through along the way.

Electric Bikes

How fast can the E-Bikes go?

The E-Bikes available at Breckenridge Ski & Sport have pedal assistance of up to 20 mph.

Do the E-Bikes have a throttle?

Breckenridge Ski & Sports E-Bikes are both Class 1, so there is not a throttle on either model of bike.

How are the E-Bikes powered?

The IZIP E-Bikes are powered by a 500wh battery.

Is there an age minimum for those wanting to rent an E-Bike?

Planning Your Trip

What should I bring along on a bike rental?

Be sure to come prepared for your day of biking in Breckenridge. Pack a backpack with plenty of water, sunscreen, sunglasses, and snacks. A rain jacket is always suggested for afternoon showers as well – especially as we get into the dog days of summer. Don’t forget your wallet in case you want to swing by one of the many restaurants for lunch!

Where in Breckenridge should we bike to?

There are miles upon miles of paved and dirt trails to venture out on with your bike rental. Breckenridge Recreation has a fantastic trail maps that can be utilized for you adventures. You can also download the app MTB Project and pick out your trail plan prior to your day.

What should I wear?

In true Colorado fashion, there is a crisp chill in the air until mid-morning. By noon you may be baking in the warm sunshine and then experience a rain shower or two a few hours later. Be prepared for any sort of weather situation and bring layers in your backpack so you aren’t stuck in uncomfortable attire on your outing.
