Colorado Cycling

A Photoshoot Story

The crisp morning air and sweeping views greeted us as we embarked on a new adventure in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Our team at Pactimo had set out for a unique cycling photoshoot, with the iconic Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort as our home base. It was an ideal location, providing not only a cozy and rustic place to stay but also immediate access to some of the most breathtaking cycling routes and landscapes in the state.

Capturing the Beauty of Garden of the Gods

Our first destination was the Garden of the Gods, a natural wonder with its towering red rock formations set against a backdrop of the blue Colorado sky. It was a perfect setting to showcase jerseys and outerwear from the Spring '24 Collection, not only capturing the performance story of the clothing, but creating a stunning visual pairing with the vivid palette of the rocks and majestic landscape.

Riding Along Gold Camp Road

Next, we took to Gold Camp Road, a historic route known for its winding curves and panoramic views. This scenic byway provided the perfect terrain for our capturing the rugged durability of the Range Collection and all-day comfort in our Summit jerseys and bibs. Our team was able to capture dynamic action shots as the models climbed steep inclines or coasted through shaded tunnels.

A Perfect Blend of Comfort and Adventure

As our photoshoot concluded, we reflected on the incredible experiences we had in Colorado Springs. The combination of the serene Buffalo Bike Lodge, the stunning landscapes of Garden of the Gods, and the challenging yet rewarding ride along Gold Camp Road made for an unforgettable journey. Our Spring '24 Collection color palette, which was inspired by the rich sandstone rock formations, vast fields of wildflowers, and incredible sun sets served to add a touch of style to the adventure.
