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!
