Would've been a great trip had they not first debited my bank account $800.00 instead of $300.00 and when they tried to fix it they still overcharged me $260.00. Now over two weeks later they continue to stonewall the refund. Not good at all.

We did Pikes Peak by Bike. The shuttle van drove us up to the summit of Pikes Peak. The guides offer interesting information about the area and nature. We were scared about what we had signed up for as we went up the mountain but it was definitely a fun amazing experience. The views and sights were amazing. We wish... More

Great company. Very organized and FUN!!! Very cold at top, however guides had plenty of extra clothing, gloves, etc. Adrenaline rush at times; however very safe if you follow guides instructions.

After riding the Cog Railroad to the top, we donned some warm clothing, got fitted for a bike, filled our souvenir water bottles and got a safety briefing. We rode 19 miles down hill with 156+ hairpin turns. The views were awesome. After getting over my initial nervousness it was an awesome, exhilarating ride. The staff was great for keeping... More

This was just purely awesome! I did the cogwheel up and bike down tour and it was everything I imagined it to be - exhilarating, fun, and exhausting. I have already written another review about the cogwheel train, so this is all about the bike ride down. They give you some warm clothes at the top, where it is cold... More

We really enjoyed biking down Pike's Peak. We took the cog up, and would definitely recommend this. The staff members provided helpful training on how to operate the bikes and were very safety conscious without taking all the fun out of it. It was exhilarating -- when we got to the bottom, we wanted to turn around and do it... More

I was very nervous going into this excursion. I soon realized I did not need to be so scared. You do need to be very safety conscious, and not go too fast. But if you follow the advice of your guides you should be completely safe. If you can bike you can do it. I basically held the break all... More

We went August 5, 2016 and it was a cloudy cool morning. From the moment we arrived at Tini's place (Challenge Unlimited) we were treated like family.
