Mountain Manners for Mountain Bikes
Do you love being in the backcountry but don’t know if you’re “doing it right?” This summer, the local education and stewardship effort, Mountain Manners, is offering a variety of courses based in the Leave No TraceTM tenets to give you the low-down on low-environmental impact travel through wild, fragile places. Hikers, bikers, backpackers and car campers - come get smart about bringing the right gear; trail etiquette; choosing the best lunch and camp sites; making a low impact fire; preserving flora and fauna; “toilet” practices; dealing with trash; preserving water quality and more.
Held during Crested Butte Bike Week, this class is for mountain bikers in a succinct format so you can squeeze in another ride later in the day! Bring your own bike, ready to ride.
