Please note: As of August 4, Clip-In With Christian for 2020 has been cancelled. Due to additional restrictions recently imposed upon our operations, we're faced with the reality that we would not be able to offer an experience at the level expected from The Little Nell. We are deeply disappointed to not be able to present the program this year. We hope to welcome guests for the annual camp in 2021 and will announce those dates once confirmed.

Cyclists of all abilities are invited to join us as we ride scenic routes throughout Aspen and the surrounding area with wining and dining each evening in spectacular settings. Retired pro cyclist Christian Vande Velde, now a commentator for the Tour de France and popular Peloton class instructor, is the trip host, serving as our experienced and supportive team leader. Special guests include Master Sommelier, restaurateur and former competitive cyclist Bobby Stuckey; retired pro cyclist and luxury wine importer Craig Lewis; and Christian’s wife Leah - a former triathlete and now a nutritionist and chef. Ventum is our official bike sponsor for 2020, providing the use of their state-of-the-art bikes to all participants along with the support of a Ventum bike fitter and mechanic.

Highlights that set this program apart from others, all delivered with The Little Nell touch, include:
- Premier accommodations for four nights at The Little Nell.
- Scenic rides through Aspen and the surrounding area.
- Bikes available for participants during camp from Ventum.
- All meals included from breakfast to lunch to dinner.
- Custom Giro cycling kits provided for each day, as well as a helmet, cycling accessories and a gear bag filled with special surprises.
