West Elk Bicycle Classic

West Elk Bicycle Classic

September 01 2019
Gunnison, Colorado, USA

The opportunity to ride a challenging and off-the-beaten-path route on all kinds of Colorado backroads.

The West Elk Bicycle Classic takes place some of the prettiest and quietest roads around. 

The well received Raghorn Loop covers 52 miles starting and finishing in Crested Butte with a nice section of gravel and climbing. This is a timed ride.

And finally our original demanding 135 mile timed loop around the West Elks. One of the hardest but hands down the best ride anywhere.
