Mountain Bike Hut Trip

Every once in a while I write a post that seems to have nothing to do with A-Basin. These posts are meant to share experiences that I think A-Basin community members would enjoy.  

With a group of six, we recently enjoyed a 75 mile 4-day mountain bike hut trip on the Uncompahgre Plateau. It was incredible. We rode through spruce, ponderosa, cottonwood and aspen forests as well as red rock canyons. There were stunning views of Grand Mesa, the Raggeds, the Sneffels Range and the LaSals. While some of the route was on jeep roads, a bunch of it was sweet single track. The trip was unguided, but it was supported. Each day our bags and fresh food were delivered to the next hut. The food was delicious. The huts were clean and efficent, almost perfect for this trip.

The trip was booked through Colorado Backcountry Biker in Fruita. Check out their website, Hut Trip. This was an A+ experience.
