A Horseback & Mountain Bike Tour – Enjoy Double the Fun On a Single Trip!
Searching for things to do on Gold Camp Road? We have partnered with Old Stage Riding Stables to bring you a tour that offers double the pleasure all in one trip. Dubbed the Saddle Up-Pedal Down package, it features two stages. The Tour starts off on Horseback and then you ride down Gold Camp Road on a Mountain Bike.
We begin the journey at the Pikes Peak Bike Tour Shop for our 9:30 am departure time. We will drive you up to the Old Stage Riding Stables where you will get kitted out for an hour-long guided horseback tour that will take you through the beautiful mountainside scenery.
You will be guided to our ‘Bike Gold Camp’ drop off point. Here you get to trade in your horse for a mountain bike and enjoy our world famous gold camp road route that brings you even closer to nature as you now traverse our amazing mountains.
This package is a great way to take in more of the natural beauty that one of the most picturesque 14ers of Colorado has to offer.
There is a weight limit of 220 lbs. for riding the horses.

We booked the Saddle up Pedal down package. We rode horses for an hour first and then went up the mountain for the ride down. Horses were well mannered and the bike were of very good quality. Horse back ride was through mostly wooded areas and we did see an elk. The bike trip was awesome with beautiful views and a thrilling ride down. Loved it! – Trisha W.
These guys offer a “Saddle Up and Pedal Down” Tour that was great. I was able to accomplish 2 things during my visit to Colorado Springs – Horseback Riding and Mountain Biking. The tour begins with at least 1-hour on a horse (guided tour) and a small group. Our group just had 3 riders. After a ride on the trails with a horse, the tour guide brings you and a rental bike up the mountain just to about 10,500 feet. Here you are left to pedal down the 20-mile trail at your own pace. The views are breathtaking and the ride was a good rush of adrenaline. I’m glad I booked this tour and would recommend it to a friend. – Doug
My husband and I are local Colorado Springs residents so we have the good fortune to have a view of Pikes Peak every day. But the views from the saddle of a bike rolling down Pikes Peak are second to none. The staff makes sure that everyone has the right bike and gear they need to have a fun and comfortable ride down the mountain. We had plenty of stops for taking photos and getting snacks. The trip concludes with a wonderful lunch in old Colorado City. It couldn’t have planned or executed better. – Jacque J.
My friend who is a beginner rider and myself being advice found the saddle up and pedal down tour to match both our abilities perfectly! The ride had great views. Favorite part of the ride was going through the old train tunnels. Staff was very friendly! – Bridget T.
My fiancé and I did the saddle up peddle down tour. Definitely a great experience all around but the best views were bike riding down. It felt like we were the only ones on that Mountain at times. We stopped a lot for photos and took our sweet time enjoying the views. The bike down was not strenuous it was all down hill, and fun little adventure through tunnels and a cute little creek with a small waterfall to top it all. – Kethsaly S.
