Attention: Due to conflicts in Crested Butte, Tuesday night the 5th of August the CRMBT camp town is changing to Gunnison. The towns are close enough together and the distances do not change much that it would still work for you to stay in Crested Butte if you have alreadymade lodging arrangements. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Here we go again! Again, the most challenging Road Bike Tour in Colorado. The 2013 CRMBT will be tough to follow but 2014 promises to once again be the premier weeklong Colorado bicycle tour. The Central Rocky Mountains offer challenging climbs, beautiful scenery and fun mountain towns for all of the 2014 participants. CRMBT is going to see areas that inspire songs, towns that provide the charm of pure Rocky Mountain life, and roads that fill your soul.
What makes the CRMBT special is this is the tour that is created for cyclists by cyclists. We understand what makes a really memorable ride.
First off it's a the route. The 2014 route will take you over some of the highest and most challenging climbs in Colorado. But it's just not the big hills, it’s the way the climbs and the days link to each other along with the towns we visit that make the 2014 route a really great ride.
Share this experience with friends and fellow cyclists, but at the CRMBT you’re not sharing it with a huge crowd. The ride is capped at 500 riders, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to meet new friends on the road, but you won't get crowded out at the Aid Stations or long bathroom lines. There are hotel rooms available and you will get into the smaller town’s restaurants without long waits. If you’re camping, you'll find plenty space and showers. In other words - low stress on the logistics so you can focus on the ride.
2014 - the year of Pikes Peak.
