We rode the Rio Grande Trail for 23 miles from Aspen Velo past Woody Creek. The change in terrain and natural beauty made this an incredible ride.

I would recommend taking a walk on the Rio Grande trail at any time of year. The Aspen Parks Department keeps it plowed in the winter months. With no car traffic around it feels like an oasis year around.

We rented our bikes (and subsequently bought them, since we come every year and have a residence interest at the Ritz) from Four Mountain Sports. The rental and subsequent purchase were quite reasonable. (970) 920-2337
