Bicycling in the 4 Corners

Bicycling has become one of the "things to do" in Mesa Verde Country; we have some difficulty keeping the tourism Biking brochure in print, because they  get handed out to soooo many people. That's one reason why the brochure is on the www.MesaVerdeCountry.com web site!
We had guests this last week who talked about the wonderful changes in technology that have made mountain bikes  lots easier to ride.  No --that isn't quite correct. They said that their bodies had been treated more kindly, given the terrain they chose to ride through, than would have been true with older bikes! 
The scenery is spectacular everywhere you go -- whether you choose mountains or desert canyons for the ride.
The road bikes come through often as well. We see riders who are doing the coast to coast thing. Ride the Rockies is a multi-day event that often includes Cortez. 
And for those  who prefer the motorcycle type of ride,there is a Labor Day event just for them!
How ever you do your wheels, the 4 Corners has the scenery that makes the ride a wonderful journey.
When planning your trip, please use www.MesaVerdeCountry.com to learn all the activities planned for the region. Then give us a all at Sundance Bear Lodge for accommodations.
