Race - Jul 12, 2021
Be prepared! PASS or TICKET (PAID) required if accessing route from Gondola during Telluride Bike Park operating days and hours!
The Tribe is attending in full force this year. We have two routes to the gondola so we can load both stations in Telluride and Town of Mountain Village efficiently. Looking to for a warm-up before hitting the gondola? Take Route 2 to climb up towards the Town of Mountain Village for a gentle 900' of climbing along Meadows Trail
to the base of Mountain Village. If you want to kick off your day with laps in the Telluride Bike Park, this option will also bring you to the base of Village Express to access trails in the bike park (must have a bike park lift ticket to access bike park trails).
Remember, the more we split the group, the less you'll have to wait in line at either end of the gondola.
Need to Know

If you're looking to tack on extra suffer miles for the weekend, check out the Tribe Gathering Alternative Route. This starts and ends at Tribe HQ and with a net elevation gain/loss of 2400'.
