Perfect trail for beginner or intermediate biker or family with multi levels. Stop in at Basalt for lunch on the rive in the "Riverside Grill" . If tired take the bus back to Aspen about 20 miles from Aspen to Basalt but a nice slow...More
Wow this is quite the trail, more like a paved path, from Aspen to Glenwood. 40 some miles of scenic riding. Road bikes might struggle with the gravel portion. Very little shade most of the way. Bring lots of water and snacks. The airport business...More

Carla, in addion to bike rental stores, Aspen now offers Bike rentals in many points of the town ; those ones you just slide your CC and go. Great bikes, and rates are very affordable.
