Crested Butte, CO

We spent over a week here including the 4th of July.  The town has hundreds of miles of singletrack you can ride and it would take a summer to ride everything.  This is simply put one of the best places to ride anywhere.  Lots of free camping, a great downtown full of places to get a beer and some grub, and some of the most killer biking anywhere.....heaven I tell ya!

The town is gorgeous with small old Victorian structures painted in lots of fun colors.

There are lots of guides on where to ride here.  I will say what ever you ride, ride Reno/Flag/Bear/Deadman's....this is easily one of the best rides anywhere.  Its over 20 miles with the most amazing flowing decents anywhere.  Check this site for some ride best...."click me".

The 4th of July was one of the best I have ever done.  Great parade with lots of food vendors and a farmers market going on.  The mountain village put on a great free concert with a huge firework show, after that the town of Crested Butte put on their own firework show.....not bad.

I had a hard time pulling away from the cross country riding, but the ski hill has 5 out of 7 days of downhill riding for $35....not bad.  Lots of cool wooden features and definitely worth the money.

Not sure what else to put here other than whatever you do, come to CB in early July and go crazy. I had the time of my life here.  This is a perfect place and a long week I won't forget.
