From this newly revised book, cyclists can expect exhaustive and comprehensive trail descriptions of more than 50 of the state's greatest mountain bike adventures, from beginner to advanced. Included are GPS-quality, digitally designed relief maps, and accurate route profiles showing the ups and downs of each ride. In addition, detailed directions get cyclists to the ride without getting them lost. Detailed mile-by-mile directional cues are also provided with difficulty ratings, elevation gain, trail contacts, and much more. More than 60 photographs round out this book's presentation. It's not just a mountain bike guide to Colorado. It's a guide to Colorado by mountain bike.

"Anyone who rides a mountain bike, and wants to ride it in Colorado, needs this book. The amount of detail compiled by the author Stephen Hlawaty was a labor of love, and it shows. The maps, trail directions, local lore, plus a solid listing of local telephone numbers for more information, makes this book a must for the traveling cyclist."
