Road Riding In Steamboat Springs

The wide-open rolling terrain of the Yampa Valley has long been home to our ranching legacy. Pedal our roads and you will be rewarded with miles of great vistas. Popular routes include everything from 20-mile out and backs, to 40-mile circuits, to mixed dirt touring, to epic hill climbs and century rides. Road rides vary in mileage so you’ll have options for a quick cruise, or an all-day crusher. Road rides abound throughout Routt County, just a few minutes in any direction and you’ll quickly remember why you find yourself in Steamboat again and again.

Bike Safety

Colorado has specific laws concerning bicycling on public roads. Click here for a summary and the statutes. Always practice the following rules of the road for safe riding:

  • Always wear a helmet, be visible, be aware and ride friendly. In Routt County we Share the Road!

  • Don’t use headphones or cell phones while biking

  • Show respect for everything on the road: drivers, other bikers, pedestrians, parked cars, agricultural operations and animals

  • When stopping move off the pavement, remain visible in both directions to other users, particularly on curves and hills, look for driveways and wide shoulder areas

  • Never assume motorists see you or that you have the right-of-way

  • Use correct hand signals to show your movements

  • Obey all traffic laws, signs and signals, and never ride against traffic

  • Ride in the right lane, except when passing another vehicle, preparing for a left turn or avoiding hazards (ride on paved shoulders and bike lanes when possible)

  • Ride no more than two abreast, returning to single-file if impeding the flow of traffic (play it safe—ride single-file on curving, narrow roads and blind hill crests)

  • Riding at night legally requires a white headlight and a red tail light or reflector. Wear bright or reflective clothing
