This is a great event that supports trails and is the perfect kickoff to an awesome weekend of riding in the Crested Butte/Gunnison area – Trail 401, Deer Creek, Hartman Rocks, Doctor Park, Teocali Ridge – not to mention the Crested Butte Chili and Beer Festival. How many miles of trail can you ride this coming weekend? See below for transportation options to Big Beers for Big Gears from and back to Gunnison, provided by Gunnison Trails.

Gunnison Trails’ executive director, Dave Wiens, will be providing safe transportation (from Gunnison), to and/or from Crested Butte (ride up there and we’ll get you and your bike back to Gunnison.) RSVP’s would be helpful but are not required.

Email us at: The ride back to Gunnison will leave Totem Pole Park (3rd and Maroon) around 8pm. Please enjoy this event responsibly. Many thanks to Dan and Brian at the Brick Oven Pizzeria in Crested Butte for their top-shelf support of trails!
