Cyclists To Rejoice National Bike Month in Summit County

Posted by: admin May 11th, 2014

bike-trail-map.gifMay is National Bike Month, and as winter turns to summer here in the high country, Summit County locals and visitors alike trade in their skis/boards and break out the bicycles. Accordingly, it just so happens that there are 12 miles of paved pathways within the town limits of Frisco that ultimately connect you to the 55-mile long network of paved, non-motorized pathways that connect towns and resorts throughout Summit County via the Summit County Recreational Pathway System. So, why not grab the bike, head to Frisco and grab a healthy dose of exercise equipped with endless miles of breathtaking views?

In addition to the miles upon miles of paved goodness, Summit County trails offer a combination of old railroad beds, wagon routes, historic mine flumes, and former cattle drive paths for your off-road adventures. With all of the paved pathways and the hundreds of miles of off-road cycling available, you are going to want to make this a multi-day adventure.

So, sidle up at the Frisco Lodge after a long day of two-wheel exploring in our beautiful mountain setting. Enjoy our award-winning courtyard (with hot tub to soothe those aching muscles) and incredible location in the middle of everything that is Colorado. With our centrally located charming bed & breakfast on Main Street, Frisco, you will be just minutes from everything that Summit County has to offer. In fact, we are offering a customizable inclusive “Three Night Outdoor Fun Special Package” with a queen deluxe room, a full breakfast, afternoon wine and cheese and a bicycle rental for your pleasure. Contact us today to book your reservation.

As the Frisco Lodge heads into the summer months, we would like to thank all of our amazingly talented employees that helped us complete one of the most successful winters to date. We would also like to extend a very special thank you to our assistant manager, Shawn Bailey, whom is leaving us after three and a half wonderful years of managing our breakfast services and our afternoon happy hour. Best of luck to you, Shawn, in your future endeavors.

We would also like to thank Bob Kato and Tuscato’s Italian Restaurant for 15 wonderful years and Italian food on historic Main Street, Frisco. Tuscato’s is permanently closing its doors, and another long-time establishment, Johnny G’s, will be taking its place as a higher-end pizzeria with a new name.
