Both these places were brilliant very close together (about 30 miles) but as different as different could be.
We camped at the Tall Texan on the edge of Gunnison and immediately headed up the road to Crested Butte to get something to eat and to see what was happening during the bike festival weekend.
The place was buzzing with bikes of every shape and size and a whole load of people in fancy dress having just completed a 'chainless' race.

Then we moved up to Crested Butte for a few days, it was a wonderful place mixing hippy culture with mountain life. The ranchers, the ski bums that never left, the bike bums that have just arrived, the rafters, kayakers, everyone, just got on and had a fine old time in a beautiful place.
The riding and running weren't bad either. MTB Run
