Cant speak much for the Vail/Avon area, as I'm not familiar with any of the riding there (if any).
I can tell you that Grand Junction/Fruita is a great place to go (if you've already done the Ouray/Telluride/Crested Butte thing). There's the Uncompaghre NF about 30 minutes south of Grand Junction that was pretty nice (some fantastic VERY TIGHT single track in places). Also, around Fruita, there's the Rabbit Valley area with some great rides as well. You might even consider doing the Kokapelli Trail (from Fruita to Moab)...about 100 miles 1-way...just dont do it like I did in late July when it was 110 degrees!
Personally, I like the Crested Butte area the best...but this is also a good alternative with lots of riding options.
There's plenty of other places, but I'll let other folks give you the updates on them...
Whatever you decide to do/go, you'll have a blast!

Im not even sure how far that goes but we rode forever and had to turn around and take the highway back to the truck for fear of running out of gas.
Does anyone know how far the Rainbow Trail goes?

Doctors Gulch is awsome as is timberline ridge trail.
Lots of places to explore on the back of a bike.
