If the ride wasn't enough for you when we arrive in Crested Butte by early afternoon, the town will certainly satisfy all remaining desires. This town is like no other place on Earth. Sigs has a special plan to give you the local CB experience. The residents are freaks of nature, chain businesses are not allowed, and the town sits in a valley so breathtaking, we dare you to try not to call it Heaven on Earth.
The evening will be fun with another fine meal as a group and more stories. It's common for visitors to immediately begin searching the local real estate listings the following morning before we leave.
Crested Butte -> Colorado Springs
We're riding back down in elevation today! You'll notice the surrounding ecosystems change.
