Miles of Road Biking await in Frisco
If your pleasure is biking on a beautiful paved surface, then we are here to introduce you to the Summit County Recreational Pathway. This 55-mile long network of paved paths extends throughout Summit County to the neighboring communities of Breckenridge, Dillon and Silverthorne. This path network is open to diverse, non-motorized uses such as biking, running and walking so expect and respect other users. And the network even connects to many, many more miles of paved pathways in Vail/Eagle County. Several Frisco bike shops also offer rental bikes and shuttles to the top of Vail Pass so participants can enjoy the scenic and gratifying cruise downhill into Frisco with nary a hair out of place- Rebel Sports and Pioneer Sports are 2 local shops offering a Vail Pass shuttle.
2 classic Frisco road bike rides:
Loop around Dillon Reservoir (sometimes called Lake Dillon)- Most of this loop is on Summit County’s dedicated paved pathway with just one section on the west side of Swan Mountain Road sharing space with motor vehicles. There is a significant climb up Swan Mountain Road, but the view at Sapphire Point makes it worth some expert sweating. Make a day of it and bring a lunch for this moderate tour (31 miles and 1,100 feet of climbing). Dillon Reservoir Loop route description/map
Copper Triangle-This is a classic road bike ride with great climbs, beautiful views and a historic mining town thrown in for good measure. You’ll see quite a few locals on this ride and the surroundings won’t disappoint on this 79 mile route with 5,900 feet of climbing. Copper Triangle route description/map.
