This week our new marketing guru, Rachel, is headed to the Mountain States Cup Wildflower Rush. I have to admit it, I have some jealousy pangs: Crested Butte easily is one of my favorite places to mountain bike.
Several years ago I attended a women’s only mountain bike clinic in Crested Butte. We spent the mornings learning skills like riding over logs, hopping off curbs, making tight turns, and balance and body position on the bike. In the afternoons we put those newly learned skills to use riding some of the most amazing trails. I rode tons, learned lots and, true to my injury-prone self, broke my tailbone on the last ride of the weekend.
This week Crested Butte is hosting the Fat Tire Bike Festival for the 25th year! There are group rides, women’s clinics with the Keen Rippin’ Chix, wildflowers, amazing trails and all sorts of racing. Stop by our booth at the Mountain States Cup races Friday through Sunday and say hello to Rachel.
And keep that rubber trail side down!
