Summer in Summit County means more than cool breezes and good brews, it’s also a time for outdoor activities like camping, biking, hiking and swimming.
For many visitors — and some residents — the gear required to participate in those activities is hard to come by. Whether it’s renting electric bikes, paddleboards or camping gear, these Summit County businesses have everything a person might need.

During winter, Breckenridge Ski & Sport on Huron Road is often bustling with riders, new and experienced, getting outfitted with skis, snowboards, helmets and poles. In the summer, the store shifts gears and offers bike rentals for those seeking a new adventure.
Unlike many outfitters in the area, Breckenridge Ski & Sport rents its bikes out by the day rather than the hour, spokesperson Abner Ruiz said. This allows bikers to get more time out riding for less money.
The store has a wide selection of bikes that work for people of all skill levels, Ruiz said. Some of the options include e-bikes, mountain bikes, gravel bikes and comfort bikes that allow for a casual stroll throughout the community.
It’s important for people to be aware of their comfort level before renting bikes, Ruiz said. The staff at Breckenridge Ski & Sport are able to answer questions and suggest trails based on experience level.
“If they are going to do some downhill mountain biking, the Breckenridge bike park has options for beginners, but it can still be kind of dangerous and there is still a lot of risk involved,” Ruiz said.
People who are unsure about their skill level or experience can always ask the shop workers for advice, Ruiz added.
In addition to bike rentals, Breckenridge Ski & Sport offers shuttles to and from Boreas Pass. The shuttles are an added $15.
