Buena Vista Bike Fest - Routes
All Routes Start & Finish at McPhelemy Park, Buena Vista, CO

The 35, 50 & 62 mile routes are out and back rides. The turn around point for the 35 miler is at the first rest stop at Timberline Tours. The 50 mile route turns west on CO 82 to Twin Lakes and Aspen via Independance Pass. The 50 mile can be extended by riding up Independence Pass. The pass is closed to through traffic at this time of year. Our support ends at the Village of Twin Lakes. The 60 miler continues north to Malta (our second rest stop) at US 24 and CR 300. The century route makes a loop passed the fish hatchery, a clockwise loop around Turquoise Lake and a clockwise loop on the paved Mineral Belt Bikeway through the Historic Leadville Mining District prior to returning to Malta, Timberline Tours and Buena Vista. The route maps are in three segments.
