Not all Summit County biking involves extreme singletrack or treacherous mountain passes. If you're looking for a leisurely cruise with beautiful views, take to the recreation paths around the Dillon Reservoir. The trails branch out in all directions, so you can rent a bike and plan a full-day sightseeing tour or a quick jaunt with the kids. "Two-thirds of the lake section of the path is virtually flat with no elevation gain, so it is a great ride for families, especially dads and moms who are pulling trailers or Tag-a-longs," said Kevin Kahle, of Rebel Sports. "The ride itself is approximately 18 miles and usually takes, on average, about two to three hours, depending on your conditioning and how many times you stop for pictures."
