Special to the Daily

The 34th Casual Classic Bike Ride returns Sept. 21. Riders take part in a casual 38-mile ride beginning in Breckenridge, following the recreational path 10 miles to Frisco. Next, they enjoy a creekside, 7-mile gradual climb to Copper Mountain, followed by 5 challenging miles to the Vail Pass summit. Finally, riders coast, predominantly downhill, 16 miles to Bully Ranch at the Sonnenalp Hotel Vail for a barbecue, live entertainment and silent auction.

Proceeds are distributed between the Sonnenalp of Vail Foundation and ECO Trails, Eagle County’s bike path system. Funds will help pay for annual improvement, upkeep and maintenance.
