About Aspen Cycling Tours

Aspen Cycling Tours is a guiding and travel service
working for you

Established in 2013 with one clear goal : To showcase the Aspen andSanta Barbara area on a road bike, whether as a training companion or as a guide leader. We ride. With you. We listen to your needs, your experience. We coach, we motivate, we guide. Catering to all levels of rider from complete beginner to professional rider, we deliver this service in Aspens beautiful Roaring Fork valley and the Santa Barbara area of California with it’s beautiful coastal scenery and inland climbs around Ojai and the infamous Gibraltar Road.

Organized Group Travel is also one of our key passions : Unlike most of the adventure travel market we don’t do big groups. More often than not it’s 2/3 of our clients who specify the destination and dates, and trust it to us to find another 3-4 like minded clients that we know personally. This allows for the creation of some very boutique and unique cycling trips staying in small villas, with knowledgable local guides and locally inspired cuisine to create an unforgettable experience with a very personal flair.

What is your bucket-list travel destination ? Amongst other trips some of our favorites include New Zealand, Spain, Italy, Scotland and Iceland 

Recommended new trip destinations to consider for 2018: Japan and Maui

Our U.S. Guides :

imwimgIain was born and raised in Scotland, riding road and mountain bikes from a young age. Leaving behind a career in the financial sector to take an extended trip to New Zealand in 2006 to tour the country on his bike became a 5 year experience of southern hemisphere riding and his second love, surfing. Now a Colorado resident, USA Cycling Coach and CPR/first aid qualified, Iain is based in Aspen, CO and guides our clients there.

Whether he is on his mountain bike, road bike, cross bike, or fixed gear, Christian counts his best days in the saddle. Having lived on the front range for his entire life, Christian has extensive knowledge of the roads and trails around Denver, Boulder and beyond. He is a Leadville 100 finisher (big buckle), Wilderness First Responder, USAC coach, former race-car driver/car-nut, and beer geek….He fits the ‘Colorado Native’ profile to the fullest. He is excited to join Aspen Cycling Tours, and show clients the truly amazing riding along the front range. 

Joining us in 2016, David was born and raised in Santa Barbara, CA, where he came to love bikes at an early age. After a sojourn to Connecticut for college, David returned to California in 2005 and has been riding as much as possible ever since. David is a fan of big mountains and long days on the bike. Always curious to push the limits of his endurance and strength, his thoughts are currently turned to the next edition of Paris-Brest-Paris in 2019. Though the French Alps have a special place in his heart, the climb up Gibraltar Road in Santa Barbara will always be his favorite ride. David is a great asset to the team and helps us show our clients the Aspen Cycling Tours way in California.
