Life, Love & Leaving

With all the high country classic Crested Butte singletrack under snow folks had to "settle" for the singletrack that leads right up to the door. All of my travles to CB have been targeted at the extreme high country of the area, I hadn't even seen the trails that run right out of town...not to shabby. After a relaxing Sunday evening reliving the experiences of the weekend we hit the trail Monday morning on our Spot Brand singlespeeds for our good bye tour. Strand Hill was the first destination as we hit the Upper & Upper Upper trails on our way to the views of Teocalli Mtn. Upon reaching the money shot we ran into Paige & Glenn from Bitterbrush Cycles here in Lyons, proof that great minds do indeed think alike. With the great views & buddies it was a chance for celebration over an ice cold trailside Gordon. We then rallied the Canal Trail back down to the deep but suprisingly rideable water crossing before Brush Creek road.
To switch it up a bit we hit the Whetstone Vista Trail back to Upper before heading out for part 2. Part 2 brought us the quick & to the point Snodgrass trail. The intial pitches were tough, but the flowers & descent made all the pain worth it...I think.

Cheers to you CB, thanks for the Love - CM
