We will bicycle the Leadville Mineral Belt Trail (11.6 mi) through the historic mining district with frequent stops at historic markers. The ride passes through aspen groves, conifer forests, meadows, and open vista sage parks as we loop around Leadville, with views of the Sawatch and Mosquito ranges. Be prepared for flats and simple bike repairs if needed. Bring: bike helmet, water, suitable clothing, relaxed attitude.



Bikes can be road bikes, mountain bikes, cross bikes, e-bikes. The pace will be casual with time to read all the historic markers. Allow 2+ hours for the ride, plus time for a picnic lunch following. (Bring your own lunch.)
