JUNE IN BIKENRIDGE
Summer has arrived! As I ride around town, birds are chirping, flowers are popping and cyclist wave as they pass on the street. The trails are dry, rider are psyched and it’s a great time to chat up friends you haven’t seen all winter. The bike culture of Breckenridge really comes to life in the summer. You will experience it at the Breckenridge Town Party (June 14th) where the preferred mode of travel is a bicycle. Bike Valet at your service! Enjoy a Bike-In movie and activities with the Breckenridge Film Festival. Bring a warm blanket and your favorite someone and watch the cult-classic “American Flyers” at the Bike-In Movie Night (June 27th). An incredibly unique experience and a great date night opportunity.
In Bikenridge, there is a variety of biking options for everyone. The road riding is endless. Ride Boreas Pass Road for a short grunty ride that will get your heart pumping or check out the paved Blue River Recpath for a day-long adventure from Breckenridge, around Lake Dillon and back. The mountain biking is phenomenal (as you know) with hundreds of miles of trails that start in or near town and can take you as far into the backcountry as you dare. Be sure to check trail conditions and be prepared for the weather. It’s Breckenridge after all. Plan to end your day with a cold brew on a sunny deck. There are plenty of options. 🙂
WAVE: Light + Water + Sound is back May 31 to June 3rd. This FREE 4-day event is great for the entire family with interactive exhibits of cutting-edge works of contemporary public art featuring illuminated sculptures, projections and digital art on the riverfront. Plan your WAVE experience after a tasty dinner as the installations and exhibits come to life when the sunsets and dark skies engulf Breckenridge. Perfect start to the Summer!
