If aliens were this nice to their abductees, no one would be whining about being winged away for a bit of medical experimentation.

An Alien Abduction is a mountain bike vacation that includes Colorado's Front Range singletrack. The name came from permission to use singletrack on a huge tract of land owned by a world-famous expert on the subject. We don't use the land anymore, but the subject lingers. We recommend that you begin on the rugged slickrock of Moab, then travel with us to Front Range trails near the Rocky Mountain National Park, but you can begin and end with a flight into Denver International Airport (DIA), if this is your wish. See LOGISTICS TO MOAB for info on how to get to our home base. Call DIA for information on flights to and from Denver. Transport to and from either destination are included.

Alien Abductions are for fit intermediate to hardcore riders, folks who want a high-quality, fully-supported, private mountain biking vacation with as much trail variety and challenge as possible. Included are cozy cabins and/or hotel accommodations. If you choose to enjoy our most exotic slickrock rides in Moab to begin with, you can opt for a day on Fruita's high plateau singletrack or a variety of difficult and challenging high elevation Colorado alpine trails on the way to the Front Range. Once in our chosen Front Range lodgings, we enjoy a wide variety of trails relatively unknown to the mountain biking subculture. When the time comes for a break, Rocky Mountain National Park is home to some of the best hiking trails in the Rockies, perfect for getting those other muscles working.

More than just singletrack ~

Being taken on a spaceship to a foreign galaxy pales in comparison. Glaring differences between our approach and the approach of the lizard men and purple dwarfs are that we book far in advance and focus on making you remember every moment of your vacation. A Dreamride Alien Abduction grants access to the most exotic high end rental fleet in the mountain bike biz, the very best accommodations, guides and trails. Any or all meals can be provided by a private chef. If you want something out of the ordinary, we can provide intellectual stimulation such as a private string quartet performance, a fine art film screening or alien abduction salon with the top intellect in the field! Our knowledge and contacts on the Front Range are unsurpassed and most unique. Alien Abductions are especially suited for honeymoons, encore honeymoons, or any romantic couple.


Moab mountain bikingThere is a reason we suggest that you begin such a high altitude mountain ride series with a couple of days in Moab. If you are coming from sea level, you will appreciate the transition from the 4,000'+ elevation of Moab to rides in the Rockies that take place between 8K and 12K. The Alien Abduction is perhaps our most physically demanding offering and choices are diverse. Moab is home to slickrock and canyons, sand and technical Jeep trails. The Front Range of Colorado holds difficult rockiy and loose granite singletrack, horse trails and, like Moab, very rugged jeep roads. All trails deliver breathtaking views and can include lung busting climbs and breathtaking decents. We throw in a couple of shuttled downhill runs just for fun. The ride series over the span of days you ride with us will flex as your body adjusts to altitude. Each trail is chosen taking into consideration your abilities and interests. Rest days are usually scheduled depending on need. Bottom line is that you tell us how deep and how high you want to go and we set up an itinerary to suit. Because we are a small group in a single SUV, we can easily adjust to weather or interests.
