Inspired by the cliff-clinging goat, original bicycles were designed with grippable steering horns, impeccable balance, and the propensity to coo when hugged. Clamber like a hollow-horned kid with today's Groupon: for $14, you get one adult lift ticket to the cross-country and downhill bike park at SolVista Basin at Granby Ranch in Granby (up to a $28 value).
Atop Granby Ranch's airy heights, the cycle jockeys of SolVista Basin spread a fan of lofty bike trails for all skill levels. Gear up and bomb down six beginner and intermediate trails or try to land extreme aerials on two pro-level double-black-diamonds. Stop by a complimentary mountain-biking clinic (Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.) to brush up on the basics of cornering, climbing, jumping, steep-terrain riding, and Sasquatch racing. Whether gliding carefree down the easy slopes of Nature's Way, or watching significant others brave the Cougar from the Base Camp Lodge café, wheelie cragsmen will remember this thrilling experience for years to come.
Although SolVista Basin at Granby Ranch sometimes offers discounted prices on Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., this Groupon still presents the best deal available.
