Where else can you complement a day's mountain bike ride with a dizzying glissade down a mid-August snowfield? Where else can you descend nearly 40 miles through five biogeographical zones? Where else can you catch a major league game and be ripping along rocky singletrack 30 minutes later? Colorado, that's where.

Snow in August, lighting above timberline, and 100 degree desert temperatures are all to be expected in the sport of Colorado mountain biking. As the country's highest state, Colorado offers its mountain bikers a unique perspective into the sport and raises the bar for all who ride. Under the expert guidance of local cyclist Steven Hlawaty, come admire the beauty and revere the majesty that is Colorado.

Pros: Plenty of good rides with good descriptions

Cons: Plenty of not so good rides. Book has too much color and not enough play by play.

Recommendation: This is a decent guide, but with so many great rides in CO, this one wastes too much space on so-so rides. It also includes lots of history and general interst, which may be of interest to some, but all the non-riding extras make the book a bit thick to throw in the camelbak.
