We want to give a big thanks to AUSTIN TRAVELS magazine for stopping by the shop during their trip to Winter Park this month and for featuring us in their article Summertime in Colorado: 4 Spots Ripe for Family Fun. The nice thing about Winter Park is that national forest surrounds the town, so there’s so much biking that’s easily accessible, and the whole community has a passion for biking. We have a long winter and we all ski hard, but when the trails dry out, everybody hits the bike trails here. We had a great time setting up writer Mauri Elbel and her family with bikes so they could explore. Thanks for visiting! From the article:
"For the second summer in a row, we rented bikes for the entire family from Epic Mountain Sports, owned by Katherine Mowrey, a Texan native who has called Winter Park her happy place for decades. Bike rentals come with helmets and there are even tag-a-long bike trailer options for little kids not ready to pedal their own bikes. We loved pedaling along the family-friendly Fraser River Trail, a scenic and super smooth 5-mile paved and dirt trail that runs along the picturesque Fraser River, weaves through shaded forests and flowery meadows and slices through the town of Winter Park, where you can stop off for lunch at dozens of restaurants or stop to let the kids run around on the playground."
