    Summit County MTB bike rental

    For this year's Leadville 100 (my eighth) I've now got myself a coach. His group says that
    if you can't go up for 3+ weeks to truly acclimatize, you might as well just stay at home
    (2500') until the packet pick up Friday AM. I'm gonna miss my 7-8 day pre-race Frisco
    vacation but I think he is correct that my fitness goes down with just a week at altitude,
    I've felt it.

    I want to test this out, and July work vacation schedules are being made now.The Leadville
    Silver Rush 50 sounds just right. Fly into Denver Friday AM, rent a bike, maybe go down
    Powerline for fun, packet pick-up, race, drop bike off on Sunday, fly home.

    Where is a high end MTB rental place in Summit County?

    Also, check out the Golden Bike Shop in Golden. Easy to get to it on the way to summit county from the airport.

    Just wondering why you don't bring your bike with you. SW and Fronteir let you bring a bike as a standard piece of luggage if it is in a box or carrier. I've be nervous about riding a 50 miler on a bike that wasn't fitter correctly and I didn't have the right tires, etc.
