PEDAL DURANGO OFFERS A GUIDE TO RIDERS WHO WANT TO VISIT THE FAMOUS MOUNTAIN BIKE DESTINATION
See what Durango has done now to attract cyclists from around the world
In the 1990s, Durango, Colorado, was widely recognized as the best place in the world to be a mountain biker. It was the site of the first UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in 1990, and the town where many of the best mountain bike racers in the world—including Ned Overend (who won the Elite Men’s XC title at that 1990 event), and John Tomac (who won the title a year later in Italy)—decided to live at the height of their racing careers.
Durango is still a great mountain biking destination, as well as a popular destination for road and gravel riders.
To help potential visitors figure out where to go and where to stay, Durango has enlisted the aid of Verde Communications to create a website to guide potential visitors in planning a trip to the area. It includes guides to the trails, events, group rides, hotels, restaurants, bike shops, travel information, bicycle companies, and more.
