FREE BOOK -- see below
There are numerous books detailing mountain bike rides throughout the state, or that specialize in single- and double-track trails in a specific area. When it comes to urban trails (those that are paved, concrete, or crushed gravel, suitable for road bikes), look to CAK Publishing. Our award-winning books are known as THE definitive guides to the urban trails throughout the metro area and across the state.

If you live here, you know -- the bike path network in Colorado has exploded in the last few years. CAK Publishing has been hard at work scouting all the newest trails, and in the last three years we have explored all the newest trails. We now have 11 books that cover the entire Denver metro area, and four more titles (now including WESTERN COLORADO) for other regions of the state.
These guides -- all running from 64 to 88 pages -- cover every significant trail in their area, as well as maps and pictures of the trails. Wondering what to do after your ride is over? The books also mention nearby parks, museums, historic sites, and other attractions. All series books are priced at $7.00 each.
Look for our titles in all the best bike stores in the region, as well as most book stores. If your favorite retailer doesn't carry them, tell them what they're missing!
