Grand Lake Bike Company was started by three local guys who wanted to bring the joy and style of cruiser bikes to our favorite summer town, Grand Lake. The rustic town, tucked right against Rocky Mountain National Park is the ideal place to cruise around exploring the beach, scenic local trails, and numerous historical sites; all overlooked by Mt. Baldy and the surrounding peaks. The lake, shopping, dining, and hiking are all just a few pedals away, no matter where you are in town!
We are looking forward to our first summer, and are excited to offer detailed local maps, fun cruises to explore, local scavenger hunts and other events, and we will even deliver the bikes right to your door if you are staying locally!
Big News - East Shore Trail has been approved to open to bicycles! This is the first biking trail in Rocky Mountain National Park
Zach has lived in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado his entire life. He grew up in Evergreen, Colorado, went to school in Fort Collins, then started teaching high school Biology at Middle Park High School here in Grand County. Zach has been a resident of the county for the last seven years, and spends every summer in Grand Lake hiking, biking, fishing, or kayaking.
Scott originates from Big Rapids, Michigan, but has lived in Colorado for the last seven years, teaching at the middle and high schools. Biking is a huge part of Scott's life. Nearly every day he goes on a bike ride (even in the dead of winter), he researched recreational biking for his Master's Thesis, and even has published a book on the topic (Mountain Bike Capital U.S.A.: The Development of a Mountain Bike Town - look for it on Amazon!)
JT came to Grand County five years ago from South Carolina to start Rocky Mountain SUP, his stand-up paddle board business on the shore of Grand Lake. Fast forward to now and JT has established himself and family as a vital part of the Grand Lake community, both through his business ventures (he is also a guide for Grand Lake Mountain Guides) and in his commitment to local organizations (President of Outstanding Grand Lake).
