Welcome to the oldest mountain bike festival in the world! This is where a rider can experience the birthplace of Mountain Biking and ride miles and miles of single track.
Since the 1970s, when locals started retrofitting old Schwinn paperboy bikes with multiple gears, Crested Butte has helped write the history of mountain biking and was once home to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. Today, some of the sport’s most thrilling chapters are still unfolding in the Gunnison Valley, with both classic and cutting-edge events on the planet’s most legendary single track trails. The Crested Butte Bike Week is the oldest mountain bike festival in the world. Now that’s a statement!
Events include the Fat Tire 40 mountain bike cross country race, the infamous Chainless downhill race, Gravity Slave at Evolution Bike Park, movies, group rides, and more! For more information, contact the Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce at 970.349.6438 or visit www.cbbikeweek.com.
