Crested Butte Mountain Bike Association

Peak riding season in CB is here!  
The high alpine flowers are outrageous, the singletrack is tacky and the views go on forever.
Welcome to mountain bike heaven!

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 from summer 2013!

2013 was a big year for CBMBA!   We built lots of new singletrack.  In spring, we built a new section of the 409 trail. With a successful 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.  In the summer, our projects included a new Green Lake Trail entrance, and the new 3 mile Point Lookout trail.  As the leaves fell, it was time to a build a new section of the Block and Tackle Trail with the GOATS.  Lastly, in partnership with CMBR, we built the new Lower Meander which connects Snodgrass to the mountain trails!  That was an epic summer and we hope you are enjoying the new track!  Thank you to all the volunteers, the USFS and the local organizations who helped make it happen!  We are geared up for more awesome projects in 2014!

2014 trail work projects. We need your help! Everybody is welcome! Baxter’s Gulch Trail Project is next!

We are going epic again in 2014!   So far we have realigned a section of 409, decommissioned the old 405 trail, and built the sweet new upper/upper trail!  We also 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. Now for the big one.  We are working to extend the Baxter's Gulch Trail up the Forest Service boundary on our overnight weekend.  We need massive help for this project.  This is a multi-year project, but the more people we get the fewer years it will take!  The overnight weekend is August 23rd.  EVERYONE is welcome.  It might be the most fun weekend of the year.  Great camaraderie, new singletrack, delicious meals provided by Rim Tours, amazing raffle prizes, campfire circle party and lots of spontaneous entertainment.  Keep an eye out for details but put it on your calendar.
