1. Demo New Gear

Face it, riding up and down the aisles of REI just doesn’t compare to the experience of an actual trail ride. Breckenridge Bike Week lets you test your gear in the environment you plan on riding in. For a demo fee of $10, you can have access to all of the newest road and mountain bikes from brands like Trek and Scott.  Demos will be held in the Bicycle Village at the corner of Wellington Rd. and Main St in downtown Breckenridge.
