Here at Accelerate Adventures, we help you plan your motorcycle vacation down to the last detail!
Why Travel With Us?
Many companies offer motorcycle tours throughout Colorado. Here at Accelerate, we pride ourselves in offering a premier active travel experience. Our pre-planned routes have been thoughtfully planned and scouted by our guides. By partnering with local outfitters along our routes, we’re able to appreciate amazing points of interest and activities that range from fly fishing to a dip in the local hot springs. We assure an amazing ride – but also want to show you some of the most coveted ghost towns, scenic spots, and unique experiences along the way!
Our dedicated team includes a chase vehicle and shuttle driver, knowledgeable CPR and First Aid trained tour guides, (2) full time mechanics and a Garmin Basecamp expert to create a well-planned experience for you or your group. All of our routes are designed by local riders with years of riding experience in our area, and feature the most scenic roads and trails that you may never see otherwise. In addition, we can customize our routes, itinerary, and accommodations to meet the needs of your particular group or price point. We can even create a custom tour just for you! Please, contact us if you don’t see a trip that suits your needs – we are happy to work with you to plan the best route, book accommodations and activities, and (if desired) appoint a personal and knowledgeable guide for your adventure.
Our trips can be customized to fit your budget and group size. Most trips are offered in a guided or self-guided format, with the exception of the 4-day Best of the BDR and 7-day Backcountry Discovery Route – self guided only for 2022 season. A self-guided tour will include a pre-programmed GPS unit that will navigate you precisely along the route of your choosing (on your own bike – or rent one of ours). Self-guided tours are offered at a fraction of the price of a guided experience, and are the perfect option for the solo traveler, or group of riders who feel they don’t need a dedicated guide and chase vehicle.
If your idea of a great ride includes boulders, sandy washes and challenging single track – we have you covered! Our home – Buena Vista, Colorado is highly regarded as one of the best areas in the country for enduro style dirt biking. We’re proud to be Chaffee County’s only permitted motorcycle guide operating in both the Salida Ranger District (USFS) and local BLM lands. Our local Fourmile recreation area is an enduro destination for riders all over the state! Allow us to show you our favorite local spot, or rent a handheld GPS and a street legal 2021 Husqvarna 501s to tackle as much of the amazing local terrain as you can handle! A variety of terrain and trails are accessible from our shop. We also offer smoother rides to hidden historic spots and fascinating geologic features, with gentle stream crossings and spectacular scenic overlooks (bring your camera!).
You may notice that trip costs are not displayed on our website. This is because group size and preferences along the route will factor into the overall cost of your adventure. For example, a group can elect for a guided or self-guided trip (GPS). You will have the option to utilize the services of our fully stocked chase vehicle (carries luggage and offers roadside assistance), or elect to carry your own supplies on the motorcycles. We also offer motorcycle rentals, shuttle service to and from the airport, helmet rental, GPS rental, and Giant Loop baggage rental. We can take care of all accommodations for you (many need to be reserved months in advance), or you may elect to book your own. Camping is another favorite option for some folks who really want to get away from it all! Our all-inclusive packages include guide service along a meticulously pre-planned route, breakfast & lunch meals, nightly lodging, a support chase vehicle, and an Accelerate Adventures t-shirt 😊
It’s not just about the seat time! Colorado has so much to offer, and our pre-planned routes include time for optional activities along the way, and at your nightly destinations. We have hand-selected our favorite restaurants in the area, as well as the best lodges and hotels to provide an enjoyable night’s rest. We connect you with local experts to offer activities like fly fishing, a dip at one of the famous local hot springs, jeep tours, or a leisurely bicycle ride over to our (guaranteed best) dining accommodations. If your group is more focused on riding – just let us know! We can modify your ride to include more seat time – usually at a reduced cost.
