Summit Biking Group

Welcome to the home of the Summit Biking Group, a non-profit road biking club of predominately active seniors dedicated to road biking in Summit County, Colorado, home to the Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge, Copper Mountain and Keystone Ski resorts as well as the towns of Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco and Silverthorne.

Our mission is to enhance recreational bicycling opportunities in Summit County by connecting fellow cyclists in a fun and organized environment and by serving as a 501c3 fundraising resource to provide financial support for projects that improve the Summit County Recreational Pathway System and other Summit County road cycling infrastructure. Make a tax deductible donation here.


We encourage everyone to get out on a bike in Summit County. The Area Rides tab contains maps, routes, elevation profiles and other information on some of the popular road biking rides in Summit County and the surrounding area. Group Rides are held Monday mornings during the summer and early fall as soon and as long as weather permits; generally June through September. Details for the Monday road biking rides and other group activities are posted on the Group Rides Page calendar as they are planned; but often not until late the week before due to weather considerations. Check the Blog Page for late details, notices, changes, cancellations, lost items, and other club news.

The group's primary emphasis is on non-competitive road biking; however, many of our members also are active mountain bikers. For mountain biking info contact Summit County Mountain Bike Alliance (SCoMBA) or Summit Mountain Biking. For road biking info, we can be reached via the Contact Us tab above or at

If you can't find what you are looking for, send us an email.

Summit Bikers Invade Austria

A group of folks, including many members of the Summit Biking Group, spent two weeks road biking in the Austrian Alps in September 2023 to celebrate a good friend's 86th birthday.  The trip included one week in the area of Fuschl Am See and another week in Sankt Agatha near Hallstatter Lake and the picturesque town of Hallstatt.  Here's the group at the Hotel Jakob in Fuschl Am See (click to expand the photo):

Summit County Interactive Rec Path and Trails Map

Summit County Open Space and Trails has developed a clickable interactive path & trails map showing the Rec Path system as well as all the hiking and mountain biking trails in the county.

Swan Mtn Climbing Lane

The west side of Swan Mountain Road from Summit High School on Hwy 9 to Sapphire Point now has a dedicated bike climbing lane beside the uphill lane.


This dedicated lane is not wide enough for 2 way traffic and thus is for CLIMBING ONLY up to Sapphire Point from the high school. Use the normal car lane to descend down from Sapphire Point to Hwy 9.
