People who don't have their own bicycles often try to make one by sawing their car in half or affixing an extra wheel to their unicycle. Borrow a traditionally made bicycle with today's Groupon: for $55, you get a morning Pikes Peak bike tour, including gear, breakfast, and lunch (up to a $115 value) from Challenge Unlimited.

For more than 20 years, Challenge Unlimited has been leading fearless adventurers on their Pikes Peak tour, an all-access mountain ride suitable for cyclists of all levels. The two-and-a-half to three-hour adventure will begin at 8 a.m. at the Challenge Unlimited offices, where you’ll be greeted by staff, fed breakfast, given a complimentary water bottle, and get fitted for helmets before boarding a van. Once you arrive at the peak's summit 14,110 feet up, the friendly guide gives a general bike-safety rundown before you head off on a soaring, 20-mile downhill ride through five different life zones and microclimates before reaching the base. As you pass by the changing vegetation, which varies from zone to zone, you may encounter a vast array of indigenous animals, such as elk, bighorn sheep, black bears, and eagles. The ride concludes at Wines of Colorado, where you’ll feast on a complimentary lunch while debating the pros and cons of mountain climbing by foot, velocipede, or hovercraft.

Challenge Unlimited caps tours at 35 riders per group and supplies all the necessary gear, helmets, permits, transportation, tolls, weather forecasts, astrological forecasts, and safety equipment. The picturesque journey down one of the country's most scenic peaks is safe for beginners, but not recommended for children.

Challenge Unlimited

Today, Challenge Unlimited captains biking and hiking tours all over the globe, from the vineyards of Tuscany to the Incan towns of Peru. More than two decades ago, however, the business was simply known in Colorado for its signature Pikes Peak by Bike tour. During this 20-mile excursion, guides and up to 35 followers descend 20 miles from a summit of 14,110 feet, infiltrating five zones with distinct climates, plant life, animals, and altitude-based baking methods. Riders often encounter eagles, deer, elk, and even the occasional mountain lion or black bear along the way. Guides can also escort Colorado's athletes across the Gold Camp Road—a 17-mile railroad bed once rattling with railcars filled with gold—and through breathtaking Aspen groves. Pit stops are made over the course of three nights and four days at the Victorian Hotel and a nearby dude ranch. Beyond domestic borders, international trips explore Nepal's Annapurna Foothill on foot and the bustling pubs and haunts of Ireland by bike or skateboards strapped to sprinting leprechauns.
