Biking in Durango and Crested Butte

After two days in Gunnison, Scott and I headed south to Durango where we heard the biking was epic. Compared to some other places we've been, the people in Durango were really laid back and friendly...and the biking on the Horse Gulch trail and in the mountains above Durango was great. It seems like there is an endless number of trails and great road rides around Durango to explore, but after a few days we had to start heading north to get back for the Mt. Evans race on Saturday. On the way to Idaho Springs, we stopped in Crested Butte to do the famous 401 Trail.
We stopped to take some photos as we went over the many passes between Durango and Crested Butte.
Here is a video from our week of biking in Durango and Crested Butte:

Just looked up where you had gotten to.

I hope you have the chance to check out the Dolores River valley I recommended to you going out of Durango.

Stay safe!

Abrazos, Dan

Hey Dan! Unfortunately we didn't make it that far west. I had thought that we would end up exploring some of the national parks around Durango, but there was so much to do and see right in Durango that we only got out of town to do one ride. I'm definitely going to have to come back to CO to do some more exploring in the near future.
