One Good Weekend festival brings biking, chili to Crested Butte Sept. 9-11

Breck isn’t the only hub for High Country biking. From Sept. 9 to 11, Crested Butte pays homage to its mountain biking heritage with One Good Weekend, a celebration of craft beer, chili, bikes and music. It’s the most fun you’ll have this fall, according to the press release, which also comes with a pretty good top-10 list of reasons why that’s true.

Here’s a quick look at all the Butte has to offer on One Good Weekend:

No. 1 Craft beer — Folks like Oskar Blues, Odell Brewing, Revolution Brewery and 21 others are invited. Festivalgoers get free beer throughout the festival.

No. 2 Chili — There’s no better pairing for beer of any style. Local cooks battle it out to see whose recipe reigns supreme.

No. 3 Bikes — The Gunnison Valley has 750-plus miles of singletrack (more than anywhere in the world) and organizers are guessing you haven’t experienced them all. Festival passes include two days of lift-served XC and downhill riding at the mountain.

No. 7 Live music — There’s music all weekend. Colorado headliners Rapidgrass Quintet and The Reminders play high-energy bluegrass and hip-hop laced with electronica. The stage is surrounded by panoramic views of the impressive West Elk Mountains.

No. 10 Fun — Crested Butte is a laid-back community that’s always eager to welcome visitors and party. Expect positive vibes, sick riding, pint sipping, chili eating, goofy dancing and more.
