It’s that time of year again! Hit the slopes in the morning and then relax before you suit up to race/ride with the Cloud City Wheelers for WinterBike, part of the Leadville winter mountain bike series. This ride is held at night and can be brutally cold–but it’s an unforgettable experience, starting at the big fire pit apres-ski and making your way around and through Copper Resort. This cross country venue usually features two laps totaling around 10 miles throughout the Village. There will be fat bike demos to try, and again this year you can bring the wee ones to LittleBike and make it a family event.
