West Elk Bicycle Classic
Add to your calendar
Date: September 1, 7:00 am
Continues Until:
Location: ride from gunni 134 mi around and over kebler to cb
Details:

The route follows the north rim of the Black Canyon from Gunnison to Crawford and Paonia and back to a Crested Butte finish coming down Kebler pass. This is a hidden gem that sees little traffic and is full of amazing scenery.
 
 
The Dave Wiens West Elk Bicycle Classic is a demanding 134 mile (with 100mi option) gran fondo or timed tour climbing 9,300ft (209 km, 2700m) from Gunnison to Crested Butte, CO circumnavigating the West Elk Mountains held Sunday of Labor Day weekend. The crux of the ride is a 25 mile 5400' climb over the dirt Kebler pass to Crested Butte starting at the 100 mile mark. The top of Kebler is where your time will stop for this timed event. You then will coast neutrally down to Crested Butte for the official finish and party (Donita's Cantina lunch, New Belgium beer, Third Bowl ice cream and raffle).

Is this a race or tour? The answer is yes. In the gran fondo style, you will leave in a mass start from Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado with cyclists ranging from professional racers to recreational cyclists. You can sign up individually or bring your friends and ride as a team. Racing or seeing how fast you can go is a great way to challenge yourself. Of course just riding as a tour and trying to finish is a challenge. It's your option.
