August 2023 End of Summer
Pedal for Pink Celebration!
Grits, Guts, & Gals


YOU can Pedal for Pink to bring awareness to cancer in our community!

Our beautiful valley offers an inspiring and stoke-worthy season of biking across the mountain trails, in town, and everywhere in between!

In 2021, 9-year-old Crested Butte local, Abby and her father, Kevin, tandem biked over 4,200 miles across the United States. Pedaling from the coast of WA to the coast of MA, they raised over $30,000 for Gunnison TETWP cancer initiatives in the valley to honor their mother/wife that was battling breast cancer.
