It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over

The riding and trail work season is not done, my friends!

This Wednesday we’re hosting a Wednesday Work Day, and this Saturday is the Annual Fall Ride and Party. Then it’s done! Just kidding. Sort of. We’ve had busy season of trail work (finishing Baxter’s, re-routes on Deer Creek, Strawberry, and 403), of stewardship, and riding, so we definitely are winding down, but we are also psyched to celebrate the end of the season with you!

So, Wednesday: trail work at Happy Hour starting at 3 p.m. this Wednesday, September 12. Check out the information here for details on how to get there and what to bring. If you can’t make it at 3, come later and walk up and join us! Thanks to the steadfast Upslope Brewing Company and Clark’s Market for sponsoring this night of work!

Onto the AFR: All members, donors, volunteers, and friends–really anyone with stoke for riding bikes–is welcome at the Fall Ride on Saturday, September 15. Meet at the CB Bike Park at 9 a.m. We’ll head out Lower Loop as a group, after which some folks will head up Slate to 403 and 401, but others will peel off to form beginner and intermediate rides, as well.

We’ll all re-group at 4 p.m. at the CB Bike Park for libations from Upslope Brewing Company, grilling courtesy of Dave Ochs and Large Marge (the big grill), and general carousing. Thanks to Crested Butte Family Dental jumping on to sponsor this event, we’ll be able to feed you really well! CBMBA will provide the food and beverages, you provide the lawn chairs. At the party we’ll award our 2018 Keeper of the Trail Awards to our adult and junior volunteers of the year. We’ll raffle off the sweet Electra townie (courtesy of The Alpineer) to a current 2018 member (you should join, BTW, if you haven’t yet). We’ll laugh. We’ll cry. We’ll ride the dirt jumps. It’ll be an all around good time!

Please ride your bike or walk to the Bike Park. If you have to drive, please carpool and park at the school! For more information on the AFR or After Party, check out our Events Calendar.

See you Wednesday and Saturday!
