This style of trip is unlike any other Trek Travel vacation.

Designed specifically to help cyclists prepare for their cycling or race season, Ride Camps are focused on getting in those early base miles to get you ready for your cycling season. A mix of guided and self-guided rides are developed with the independent rider in mind, our camps cover the basics and allow you to just enjoy the ride. Each day, there is a designated time to meet the Trek Travel staff member for a group ride. Choose to cycle the days featured ride with the group or if your cycling ability differs you may simply head off on your own self-supported ride. Each evening you'll stay in luxury accommodations and dine on meals that cater to the needs of cyclists.

DAY 1

Boulder, Colorado

Featured Ride: Self-Guided Boulder Hills

A scenic, unsupported ride through the Boulder foothills and a glimpse into the beauty of the Boulder canyons.

DAY 2

Boulder, Colorado

Featured Ride: Left Hand Canyon

The 17-mile climb up Left Hand Canyon to the town of Ward is a classic ride in Boulder. The average grade is approximately 4.5% where the last 2 miles the grade kicks up a notch with a short section of 12%. Just a little climb past Ward is the Peak-to-Peak Highway at an average elevation of 9,000ft above sea level.This is one of the most famous roads to ride along Colorado’s Front Range. The Peak to Peak’s undulating hills provides spectacular views of the 14ers to the west and the flatlands to the east. Check out the hippie town of Nederland before descending back into town via the sweeping turns of Boulder Canyon.

DAY 3

Boulder, Colorado

Featured Ride: Lee Hill

Today’s ride combines the best of what Colorado has to offer, starting with an 18 mile warm up. There is no other road that matches the beauty of South St. Vrain. Although South St. Vrain to Peak-to-Peak is a long 16-mile climb, the average grade is only 3%, which is a good thing, because the climbing continues for another 8 miles to the town of Ward along the Peak-to-Peak highway. Push your legs just a little more by going over Lee Hill, a short (1.5 mile), sweet and steep (7%) climb that descends into North Boulder.

DAY 4

Boulder, Colorado

Featured Ride: Morgul Bismarck & "The Wall"

Ride the on same road where Greg Lemond, Bernard Hinault and Moreno Argentin raced their hearts out.The Morgul-Bismark loop is actually named after the Coors Classic/Red Zinger race promoter’s cat and dog. The last descend of the day is a fast 16 miles back into the heart of Boulder.

DAY 5

Boulder, Colorado

Featured Ride: Carter Lake

Today’s 75-mile ride to Carter Lake offers a bit of recovery with only 2300ft of climbing. If the 7-mile climb is not enough of a challenge for you, don’t worry. Add 1,500 ft of climbing in 3.5 miles to head to Pinewood Lake before leisurely returning to Boulder.

DAY 6

Boulder, Colorado

Featured Ride: Estes Park

The longest ride of the week, 95 miles, is to Estes Park, the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The views on this ride are like no other. Enjoy a break and take in the views in Estes Park because the town is located in a valley, which means there is a short climb out of the valley before descending back to the east. The hardest part of ride just might be the last 20 miles back to the hotel. Just picture a cold drink and a soak in the hot tub for the last pedal strokes.

DAY 7

Boulder, Colorado

Featured Ride: Flagstaff

Flagstaff: Classic must do climb for cyclists visiting Boulder! The climb starts right at the base of the beautiful Chautauqua Park.
