Lots going on in Breck on this weekend read our new story on all of the activities

From Breck Bike Week

You know Moab is a slick rock haven, and you’ve taken a spin on Crested Butte’s buttery trails, but have you ridden the mining paths turned singletrack in Breckenridge? One of Breckenridge’s best kept secrets is its expansive backcountry trail network that can be accessed from anywhere in town within two minutes, and the town is about to introduce visitors to its secret stashes during the inaugural Breck Bike Week, July 4-12, 2009.

Bookended by two unique and internationally recognized mountain bike races, the Firecracker 50 on July 4 and the Breck Epic July 6-10, visitors will be able to observe or race as well as partake in group led rides, bike-in movie nights, a “meet the pros/legends/journalists” event, lectures, bike fits, kids’ races, Tour de France viewing parties, high-end bike demos and more. The bonus is that all Breck Bike Week activities are FREE and open to everyone. In addition, this week will showcase the town’s 150 years of history as well as shopping, dining, lodging, other unique activities and temperate summer weather.
