Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association

Fall riding season is here! 

Lower rides dry and awesome! Caves, Waterfall Cutoff, 409, Farris and Strand Bonus, Lupine all in great shape. Teocalli, Walrod Spur, Lower Loop might have some muddy spots but if you are ok with walking they are otherwise good. Hartman Rocks is tacky and good riding. Salida rides (S Mountain) should be dry and good, Montrose ride (Spring Creek and Sidewinder) should be good to go.


The Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association is celebrating its 32nd season! We are an all volunteer, non-profit 501C3 organization dedicated to the access, building and maintenance of mountain bike trails in Crested Butte and the Gunnison Valley in Colorado.Each summer we organize several work days in conjunction with the Forest Service and BLM, building new trails and maintaining all the classic trails that so many locals and visitors love to ride.  Become an integral part of mountain biking in Crested Butte by joining our club or showing up to help out on a trail workday.

Enjoying our work on Trail 409!

2013 was a big year for CBMBA!  
Thanks to all the Volunteers, the USFS, and all the other businesses and organizations that helped make it happen!
  • We built a new section of the 409  and did tons of work on the rest of the trail. With a grant we recieved in the winter, the USFS hired a work crew to fix up the super rocky sections in the middle.  
  • On National Trails Day, over 100 volunteers helped us buff out the Lower Loop.
  • Built a new Green Lake Trail entrance.
  • We built the new 3 mile Point Lookout Trail!
  • We built a new section of the Block and Tackle Trail with the GOATS.
  • In partnership with CMBR, we built the new Lower Meander which connects Snodgrass to the mountain trails!  

 

2014 CBMBA Work so far:


So Far in 2014:
  • We have realigned a section of 409 and decommissioned the old 405 trail that Point Lookout replaced.
  • Built the sweet new Upper Upper trail!  
  • Funded a USFS crew that did some more amazing work on 409.  
  • Have you noticed all those sweet, new metal rollovers out there?  Doug Bradbury, our longtime board member has been busting those out!  If you see him around town buy him a beer or two!  We think they are making for a much better riding experience and improving our relationship with the local ranchers at the same time.
  • Buffed the lower section of the Dyke Trail and Doctor's Park
