If you are a mountain biker (or even cyclist) and haven’t yet made it to Crested Butte, CO—get it on your list. This former coal mining town at the foot of Mt. Emmons is now an alpine haven for mountaineers, climbers, snowboarders, skiers, hikers, mountain bikers, cyclists, and anyone who enjoys small town mountain life. Hundreds of miles of epic singletrack, an extremely active local mountain bike organization, and the annual Fat Tire Bike Week, together have cemented Crested Butte as one the premier mountain biking destinations in the US
Brew Bike and Beer
As we have so many great coffee shops, craft breweries, and bike rides here in the Bay Area and Northern California in general, I have decided to start a new series called Brew, Bike, and Beer. The goal is to highlight rides that start at a coffee shop, as you obviously need to caffeinate before you set out on your bike, and end at a brewery—with lots of great scenery in between. What could be better than that?
