Founded in 1993, Singletrack Mountain Bike Adventures (SMBA) is the longest running, independent junior mountain bike program in Colorado. Our programs introduce young riders to the exhilaration and adventure of the sport. SMBA provides an atmosphere where riders have the opportunity to develop a range of skills and interests, from a 7-year old beginner to a mature racer. Our program strives to support youth to become champions on and off the trail. SMBA's philosophy combines a healthy mix of challenge, camaraderie, adventure, mentoring, and passion. SMBA builds confidence and ignites the best in youth from the saddle of a mountain bike.

Well cycling fans the record highs across the country should be drawing everyone to the mountains of Colorado.

Switchbackcycling.com has been travelling the state this summer and have cycled paths, pavement and trails in Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco, Keystone and Silvethorne, Winter Park, Vail, Avon, Beaver Creek and Crested Butte to name a few. We have also played in parks, creeks, rivers, mountain bases and on top of mountain passes. The resort towns continue to offer family fun as well as epic road and mountain biking.

The U.S. Cycling Pro Challenge will soon be starting in Durango. What an incredible event to follow. Like the tours in Europe, Colorado cycling fans will yet again line the starts, summits and finishes of a professional stage race. Host towns include: Durango, Telluride, Montrose, Crested Butte, Gunnison, Aspen, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Colorado Springs, Golden, Boulder and Denver are in high gear for this international event. As mentioned earlier, Shawn Hunter co-chairman of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge was quoted in the Telluride Visitors Guide as stating: "I've heard it said a lot lately that cycling is the new golf". There is no better time to put gas in the car, lube the chain, put air in the tires, and load up the kids for a cycling adventure.
