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 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 Overnight now on Dyke Trail!

CBMBA Overnight Change of Plans - Working on the Dyke trail this weekend!  Let's fix up a CB Classic in time for the fall colors!

Sorry to say folks, but we ran out of time for our trail alignment on Baxter Gulch to be approved for this weekend and have to pick another spot. No worries long term for Baxter Gulch Trail, just can't get it in this weekend. 

We have moved our overnight to Dyke Trail for this weekend, as the end of the Dyke going into Horse Ranch Park is in serious need of help due to substantial erosion from heavy rains and spring runoff. We will be meeting right at the end of the trail and camping as close to that as possible. Many of us will head out there Friday night if you would like to join or plan on working around 10 am Saturday and hopefully riding bikes on Sunday! Should be a great spot to camp, a great trail that needs help to work on, and as always a terrific weekend thanks to the wonderful folks at Rim Tours. So come on out and lend us a hand and bring the family camping for the CBMBA Overnight. See you this weekend.  If you can't spend the whole weekend no worries.  Come help Saturday and stay for dinner, party and raffle. 

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.
