COVID-19 UPDATE: We are open daily 10am-5pm. Masks required. We are limiting customers in the store, so we may ask you to wait outside.
Absolute Bikes will not be offering any rental bikes, guided tours, or shuttles for the 2020 season until at least August. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate through these technical trails in life, and we hope to adventure with you soon. Stay safe.
If you would like to do the demo program, please call ahead so we can have bikes prepared for you. Or, if you know what you need, you can call ahead and we’ll have it waiting for you!
Absolute Bikes is an award-winning full-service bike shop located in the heart of historic downtown Salida, Colorado. We are in the historic “Old Feed Store” – just look for the tall metal grain tower along the Arkansas River. We have everything you need, from local trail suggestions and maps, new bikes & specific demo program bikes, used demo & rentals from last season, current rental bikes, guided rides, service, to a full selection of parts and accessories.
Open 7 days a week year-round with mechanics always on duty. Little Cambodia is located next door for your post-ride recovery meal, and we’re on the river for a refreshing swim after your ride.
Some of the best mountain biking in the state is right out the door on the Monarch Crest Trail, the Colorado Trail, the Rainbow Trail, not to mention the extensive Arkansas Hills (S-mtn) & Methodist trail systems that are rideable nearly all year and out our back door. Check out some of our favorite local rides.
