Western Spirit Cycling is based out of Moab, UT but has plenty of history riding in Crested Butte and the Gunnison Valley. Not only do they offer guided trips to the valley, but they also host Outerbike, one of the largest events of the year every August in Mt. Crested Butte. Outerbike is the best bike demo event in the universe. Their Crested Butte trips book up fast so if you’re interested give them a call at (800) 845-2453 or visit their website.
Crested Butte Singletrack Trips
If you are a singletrack aficionado (you’ve done Sun Valley, Brian Head and even our Colorado Singletrack) and you STILL want more, it’s time to head to Crested Butte. Bigger peaks, taller wildflowers and more singletrack than you can ride in an entire summer. We have created the ultimate Crested Butte itinerary! We pedal right out of town into the Elk Mountains which surround Crested Butte. Located at a whopping 8,885 feet, Crested Butte is home to the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame and a birthplace of modern mountain biking. Singletrack literally extends in all directions and we have chosen the most buffed, and the most beautiful, including all the classic rides. True, breathing is a challenge, but the views are unrivaled making the effort all worthwhile.
This trip requires singletrack experience and peak physical condition. Altitudes range from 9,000 to 11,500 feet. This is the real deal, and trust us, it’s amazing!
What better place to access lift-serve cross country trails to test your dream bike? Unrivaled mountain scenery, flowy singletrack, and the state’s best wildflowers too. Combine all that with Colorado’s most genuine mountain town with a plethora of lodging and camping options. What’s not to love?
Western Spirit Cycling has partnered with Crested Butte Mountain Resort to provide a summer Outerbike in one of the birth places of the sport. Crested Butte has always been high on the bucket list for hardcore riders, but now the new Evolution Bike Park has something for everyone. Hop on the lift to test the latest and greatest bikes on the classic Crested Butte rides, or ride the fun new trails for everyone at the base area. Repeat as needed. Ride your little heart out, soak up the impressive mountain views, then relax with a tasty beverage at the end of the day. Attendance is capped, so register early to get your spot!
