Colorado boasts more than 300 days of sunshine a year so why sit in a car or a stuffy tour bus when visitors can see the Mile High City in the fresh air?

Comfortably sitting on high-quality Fuji “hybrid” bikes, the funny and knowledgeable guides will lead riders at a leisurely pace to enjoy an out-of-the-box tour of the city. Fortunately, Denver happens to be a flat city ideal for a biking tour, and Bikelope Tours will guide visitors next to rivers, zip through neighborhood streets and glide along urban bike paths for approximately a two-hour adventure. The owner, Bobby Weidmann, is an avid cyclist who will show visitors the joys of biking over driving. Most all ages will feel the freedom of gliding around town on a two-wheel adventure of a lifetime.
