My Bike Hub: Glenwood Springs

Elevation: 5,761

Slogan: Glenwood Springs is home to the Glenwood Hot Springs, the natural underground Vapor Caves at Yampah Spa, and the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

Tidbit/Historical piece: Doc Holliday’s grave, destination for “bath trains” from Leadville with miners to visit the hot springs, Teddy Roosevelt visited the Hotel Colorado and was given a stuffed bear that coined the name “Teddy Bear”.

Cycling antidote: Glenwood Springs is a great starting point for the Rio Grande Trail, a bike path that continues to Aspen or the Glenwood Canyon Trail, a 16 mile bike path along the Colorado River.
