The Brothels & Brews Tour

Our Mountains-to-Rivers Colorado Bike Tour (a.k.a. Brothels & Brews) brings together one-of-kind 19th century Victorian Hotels (some with a scandalous past), some of Colorado’s finest micro breweries, Colorado’s Scenic By-Ways, and highlights such as the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, to create a spectacular summer bike tour through Colorado!

The tour rides through our home mountain range: the rugged & remote San Juans. In the late 19th century the tiny mining towns of Ouray, Durango and Telluride, Colorado were remote outposts of civilization. Each town felt they needed a landmark hotel to attract investors and to put their town on the map.

In recent years these historic Victorian-Era hotels have seen major renovations and provide an entertaining end to a day of cycling across the Colorado high country. Go ahead, harken back to 1880’s and transform yourself to a time when Victorian opulence like this was reserved for the rich and famous, you’re entitled!
