Steamboat Springs, Colorado (PRWEB) July 23, 2014
With the launch of Mojo Bike Tours (http://www.mojobiketours.com) in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, summer visitors now can enjoy an innovative, all-inclusive cycling vacation that combines enthusiastic, experienced guides, world class lodging in luxury chalets and gourmet meals prepared and served in-home by the company’s chef.
From its headquarters at the base of the Steamboat Ski Area, Mojo Bike Tours has access to a range of world class rides, including legendary routes that have been featured in the USA Pro Cycling Challenge and Colorado Ride the Rockies; challenging climbs such as Rabbit Ears Pass, Gore Pass and the Three B's; and stunning scenery from Steamboat Lake to the Stagecoach Reservoir and along the Yampa Valley.
“We’ve been in the hospitality business for more than 15 years, providing luxury lodging and catered chalet experiences to mostly winter visitors who come to Steamboat Springs to ski,” said Mojo Bike Tours and Moving Mountains president and founder Robin Craigen. “But Steamboat is also known as Bike Town USA™, and it is fast becoming a summer vacation destination every bit as popular as it is in the winter.
“This type of cycle vacationing is popular in European countries, where groups of riders go all-out on an active two-wheel vacation,” continued Craigen. “The beauty of it is that it’s a one-stop shop. With our guests’ input beforehand, we take care of planning the rides, we guide and support the rides, and at the end of the day our guests return to their opulent lodging to find our chef cooking them a gourmet dinner. All they have to do is ride and relax.”
Mojo Bike Tours’ professional and enthusiastic guides accompany riders to provide encouragement and advice with every pedal stroke. Longer rides are accompanied by a support vehicle with regular stops for refreshments and snacks and changes of attire, and riders have the option of a seat whenever they need a break or if the day in the saddle is too long. Weekly itineraries are customized to the ambitions and abilities of each group. Mojo Bike Tour’s sister company Moving Mountains (http://www.movingmountains.com) provides the luxury accommodations, with meals prepared fresh by its chefs and served by its staff each morning and evening.
A typical day begins with a full breakfast prepared and served in the comfort of the guests’ chalet by the company’s chef and staff. For long rides where a lunch option is not available, sandwiches are included to supplement the on-board energy foods in the support vehicle. Afternoon tea awaits riders when they return from their day on the road, followed by a gourmet dinner professionally prepared within the chalet. For a typical week-long trip, Mojo Bike Tours plans for five full days of riding with an optional midweek rest day, however guests are encouraged to provide input on their goals for the week to create the perfect riding itinerary.
Guests can either bring their own bikes or rent from one of Mojo Bike Tour’s local bike shop partners. Guests are required to bring their own attire and accessories, including a helmet. For those cyclists who have partners, friends or relations who do not want to join all or any of the rides, the Steamboat Springs area has much to offer, including walking, hiking, rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing, golf, tennis, shopping, spa experiences and much more.
“From meeting the challenge of riding above 10,000 feet, to gasping at the magnificent beauty of the rugged mountains and lush valleys below, after a week of cycling in the Rocky Mountains our guests understand why we are proud to call Bike Town USA™ our home,” finished Craigen.
