We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start of your Aspen bike tour, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into the Denver International Airport (DIA), followed by a short flight to Aspen–Pitkin County Airport (ASE). United and American offer direct flights (seasonal and subject to change) from Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, and Los Angeles. The resort provides free shuttle service from the Aspen–Pitkin Airport to the hotel, and the van can accommodate no more than 10 guests at once. Please call 970-925-5000 upon arrival at the Aspen airport to arrange transportation to the hotel.
Alternatively, from DIA you can choose to fly into Eagle Country Airport (EGE) and take a two-hour shuttle to Aspen.
Another possibility is flying into Grand Junction (GJT), which is two hours west of Aspen with direct flights from Denver, Phoenix, and Las Vegas.
If you wish to drive to Aspen from Denver, we suggest that you drive through Leadville and Twin Lakes over Independence Pass. It will take about three and a half to four hours and is a very scenic drive. Driving via I-70 and Co Hwy 82 will take about four hours.
Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at The Gant at 11:00 AM on the first day of the trip. You’ll have some time to explore the town while your guides set up a hearty picnic lunch. After lunch and a bike-fitting session, we'll set off on our first ride. Feel free to dress comfortably, you will have time to change into your cycling gear after the picnic. Please pack your cycling clothing and gear in a separate, easily accessible bag.
If you will be late for the meeting or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call your hotel, The Gant (+1 800-549-0530), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details. The hotel arranges free shuttles to and from the Aspen airport, so they can pick you up upon arrival.
