Road rides out of Gunnison?
I'm a photographer and will be in Gunnison to shoot a football game on the 7th of September. I'm also a roadie and have been thinking about coming out a week early and ride some out and backs each day, none to exceed 75-80 miles as I'm a flatlander and don't want to bite off more than I can chew! To further complicate matters my climbing bike is in Michigan and I'm going to be riding something along the lines of a lugged steel with a 6-7 speed cassette. Any suggestions for rides that will give me a taste of the mountains and hills without being crazy-difficult? Gunnison to Crested Butte looks like a logical ride, good roadway and traffic? Thanks!
Crested Butte non-technical trails
Great on the Hartman Rocks, checked some video out on that area and that looks great....how about some pretty but not too technical trails up around Crested Butte? Or over by Salida? Actually any really pretty mountain biking trails within 50 or so miles of Gunnison would be fine, here again the scenery is what I'm looking for, elevation changes are fine too, just nothing too terribly technical, I don't have those kind of skills.
