We rented bikes from three different rentals (Its a long story… electric bike from one place, regular bikes frim another and baby trailer at the third place)in Vail Village for a half day. Each of them separately suggested that we bike on the Gore Valley Trail in East Vail. After following their suggestion I definitely understood why. We enjoyed the magnificent scenery and the babbling brook running alongside the trail. The trail was not very difficult. Certain spots were a bit uphill but not very difficult. There are benches spread throughout that are great for a quick break and we enjoyed cooling off and dipping our feet into the cool mountain water. We also refilled our water bottles with the cold and tasty water. This is a great option for biking on your own without an organized tour or group.
Most of us used regular bikes but we also rented one electric bike with a seat in the back. We rented it from Pedego Vail. They only had one such bike. It was an extremely practical solution for our just 8 year old who would not be able to keep with everyone else on his own bike.
