DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKING, RENTALS & TOURS 

If you are an experienced rider or if you're new to the sport, Belleayre is the perfect place to get your legs geared up for the start of the biking season.  The A & AA loops of our cross country trail system have plenty of mileage to offer riders of all levels and abilities and downhill portion from the summit provides that extra challenge.  Visitors may bring their own bikes or rent right from us.  Helmets are required, as well as a completed assumption of risk agreement.

You can also book one of our introductory mountain bike tours and our staff will show you everything from how to get the most out of your bike to how to conquer hills safely. You'll build confidence, learn new skills, and surprise yourself by what you're capable of doing on two wheels.  Tour includes a gondola ride up to the summit, a scenic mountain bike tour across the ridge to the old fire tower and a ride back down the gondola.

NEW THIS SEASON - MOUNTAIN BIKE RENTALS AND TOURS 

DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKING:

If you are looking for that extra challenge, the Belleayre downhill terrain is just what you need.  We offer two single track options off the summit, Roaring Brook and Onondaga, serviced by the Catskill Thunder Gondola during regular operating hours for the Scenic Gondola Rides.  In total, the trails descend over 1400', snaking down the ski trails of Belleayre.  

MOUNTAIN BIKE RENTALS:

Belleayre Mountain will be renting bikes 7 days a week to ride the trails at the mountain! There are designated trails in the lower (loops A & AA), but you will, depending on your ability, be allowed to ride additional trails at the mountain. Bikes will be available for rent beginning at 10am and will be due back no later than 6pm.  This season there is a fleet of Salsa Timberjack adult and kid bikes available for rent.

Adult Bikes Rentals:  Timberjack NX1 & GX1 are a hardtail, front suspension mountain bike that’s equally at home pushing the limits on singletrack or bikepacking to places you’ve yet to discover. Timberjack features modern trail bike geometry, and clearance for 27.5+ wheels and tires. Super-short chainstays aid in nimble scrambling; up, down, and in and out of turns. Timberjack has all the qualities you’re looking for in a trail ripping hardtail. 

Kid Bike Rentals:  Timberjack 20 and Timberjack 24 are our plus-sized 3″ tire kids’ bikes designed to help turn your child’s daydreams into reality. Timberjack 20 and 24 will be there on family adventures and solo missions in the nearby woods, fostering independence all the way. The 6061-T6 heat-treated aluminum frames, high-volume tires, modern-day componentry, and geometry specific to the size of the rider provide a durable platform for any quest.

MOUNTAIN BIKE TOURS:

Belleayre Mountain will offer introductory mountain top bike tours on weekends (midweek by appointment only). Enjoy a scenic gondola ride to the summit and an introductory tour across the summit to the old fire tower site across the ridge and back. Tours will begin at 11am or 2pm and will last approximately 1.5 hours.
