Guide Services

You can handle your bike competently. You know how to ride. You even have a pretty good idea of roughly where you want to ride, because you asked your bartender for her favorite trails last night. Or you searched our interactive trail guide. But you want to get a taste of Gunnison Valley riding the way the locals do it.

You don’t need a lesson. You want a mountain bike guide.

Irwin Guides

Irwin Guides, partner company of Eleven Experience, is the area’s other main mountain bike guide company. During the winter, the Irwin Guides offer catskiing and winter mountaineering as well as ice climbing. During the summer, they offer a wide variety of guided options including fishing, rock climbing, hiking, and more. They offer half day and full day guided mountain bike trips and skills clinics as well. One nice perk of going with Irwin Guides: for an extra fee they’ll send a photographer out with you to document your day.

Irwin Guides is offering a new type of mountain bike experience in the Gunnison Valley. Link up miles of singletrack with some of the best campsites and a vehicle with a guide who will set up camp every night for you. Their overnight mountain bike trip sounds like a pretty good way to cover a lot of ground on your bike.
