Hired James as guide to navigate. Worked out great, Had a blast, comfort in knowing I wouldn't be making wrong turns (and wasting precious Time) as I have so many times on my own. Very likeable staff at Absolute Bikes

Kimberly is very accommodating and all of the staff at Absolute are great, we highly recommend them for a family trip or hard core ride on the Monarch Crest.

Was my second time with them. This time I made 3 guided rides: Salida Mountain Trais; St.Elmo - Alpine Tunnel and Monarch Crest Trail. Was most funny than last time! Kimberly and Nike, my guides, were fantastic!

My husband and I recently enjoyed a beautiful ride along the Arkansas River. Our guides, James and Kimberly were phenomenal! They were professional, helpful, knowledgeable, and great photographers! If you're looking for a tour company that offers individualized service, call Absolute Bikes!

Spent two days riding on snow with Fat Bikes!! Great guides who knew the area well and arranged for an amazing couple of days. The highlight was soaking in the hot springs after a day in the snow.

Two day guided bike adventure in the high country of Chaffee County. Fantastic guides, support, food, and experience. All levels represented in the group, and the guides accommodated our every need.
