Buena Vista Bike Fest

Ride Buena Vista! Register here.

 

20th Annual Buena Vista Bike Fest

The beautiful Buena Vista Bike Fest century route goes North to Leadville, along the scenic rolling hills of Turquoise Lake Road, around the Mineral Belt Trail passing aspen groves and conifer forests, meandering through the historic Leadville Mining District, and back to Buena Vista in the shadows of Colorado’s highest mountain peaks.

Nearly all of the climbing is completed over the first 60 miles of the ride, with the last 40 miles essentially downhill to flat! Riders also have options to take shorter routes including a 35 miler, a 50 miler, and a “metric century” (62 miles) while still enjoying the Collegiate Peaks’ magnificent scenery.

BVBF is sponsored by Buena Vista Rotary.  We have been told by our riders that our rest stops are the best of any ride they have ever done. Our routes are well covered with SAG vehicles. For your safety the Colorado State Patrol will be patrolling route and the Chaffee County Search & Rescue will be providing EMT support.

From Noon until 5:00 p.m. relax at the BVBF Post Ride Party in McPhelemy Park. Join us for beverages, food and music in the park. This is a great way to unwind from the day’s cycling challenge. Enjoy music in the park, Eddyline Brewery of Buena Vista and Bristol Brewery of Colorado Springs.

Plan to spend the weekend in Buena Vista and enjoy other rides including some great mountain biking in the area. Check-in at The Trailhead for other rides and routes in the area. Springtime in Buena Vista is also an excellent opportunity for fishing, hiking, rafting and numerous other outdoor activities.
