Outerbike Crested Butte

Crested Butte is one of Colorado’s most genuine mountain towns and is home to epic views and peaks of just over 12,000 feet. Thin air and endless groves of Aspens are a common sight in Colorado, but there’s something about the mountain bike culture and passion instilled in Crested Butte that makes it a unique and special place. These are just a few of the reasons Wester Spirit teams up with Crested Butte Mountain Resort to host Outerbike CB.

Crested Butte Mountain resort hosts 32 lift serviced trails from beginner to expert level riders. Whether you’re out to find flow, work on your jump lines or tackle boulder gardens, CB has it all. This year, the summer flowers were blooming and painting the mountains all different colors for Outerbike attendees to admire.

Per an agreement between Western Spirit and CB Mountain Resort, the lifts were open for all three days of the event to include lift service for e-bikes. This meant riders had the options to test out these great trails on acoustic mountain bikes and e-mountain bikes throughout the Outerbike weekend.

Epic views all throughout the mountain. 

The Pivot Shuttle paired with the Shimano STEPS system was available to demo among many others at this event. The Shuttle proved to be the perfect bike to tackle the Crested Butte terrain with it’s nible handling, well balanced frame and great pedaling ability.

When lift lines were long people on e-bikes were able to pedal up the UP TRAIL and meet their friends at the top. It was reported that it was a pretty close race and in one case the e-bike made it to the top before friends who took the lift!
